Residual current operated circuit-breakers with integral overcurrent protection for household and similar uses (RCBOs)
Part 1: General rules
(IEC 61009-1:2010, modified + A1:2012, modified + A1:2012/Cor.:2012 + A2:2013, modified + A2:2013/Cor.:2014); German version EN 61009-1:2012 + A1:2014 + A2:2014 Class/Status:
VDE Art. No.: 0600099
This International Standard applies to residual current operated circuit-breakers with integral overcurrent protection functionally independent of, or functionally dependent on, line voltage for household and similar uses, for rated voltages not exceeding 440 V a.c. and rated currents not exceeding 125 A and rated short-circuit capacities not exceeding 25 000 A. These devices are intended to protect people against indirect contact, the exposed conductive parts of the installation being connected to an appropriate earth electrode and to protect against overcurrents the wiring installations of buildings and similar applications. They may be used to provide protection against fire hazards due to a persistent earth fault current, without the operation of the overcurrent protective device.
