Electromechanical elementary relays

Part 10: Additional functional aspects and safety requirements for high-capacity relays

(IEC 61810-10:2019); German version EN IEC 61810-10:2019
Class/Status: Standard, valid
Released: 2020-07
VDE Art. No.: 0400395

This part of IEC 61810, with functional and safety aspects, applies to electromechanical elementary relays (non-specified time all-or-nothing relays) with high capability requirements like breaking or short circuit capabilities and similar for incorporation into low-voltage
equipment. These relays may have a specific design to extinguish the electric arc between contacts (e.g. by magnetic blow-out), or use an insulation coordination not covered by IEC 61810-1 (e.g. by gas filled contact chambers), or require safety assessments not covered by IEC 61810-1 (e.g. for higher loads).
