Title Low-voltage fuses - Part 4: Supplementary requirements for fuse-links for the protection of semiconductor devices
Project Number 23608
Abstract/Scope IEC 60269-4:2009 is to be used in conjunction with IEC 60269-1. This Part 4 supplements or modifies the corresonding clauses or subclauses of Part 1. Fuse-links for the protection of semiconductor devices shall comply with aIl requirements of IEC 60269-1, if not otherwise indicated hereinafter, and shall also comply with the supplementary requirements laid down below. This fifth edition cancels and replaces the fourth edition published in 2006. It constitutes a technical revision. The significant technical changes to the fourth edition are: - the introduction of voltage source inverter fuse-links, including test requirements; - coverage of the tests on operating characteristics for a.c. by the breaking capacity tests; - the updating of examples of standardised fuse-links for the protection of semiconductor devices.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
