Archived from the original on However, since 1 Januaryonly type 11 and 12 plugs with partially sleeved line and neutral pins are allowed to be imported and distributed in Switzerland to reduce the risk of electrical shocks. An insulating sleeve around the base of the line and neutral pin similar to Europlugs is not compulsory.

It was concluded with wide participation of the manufacturers of plugs and sockets and of electrical and electronic equipment, in July ofwith the publication of the norm ABNT NBR The 3-pin version has a round protective-earth pin of the same length and diameter as the line and neutral pins, but with no insulating sleeve.

This page was last edited on 25 Decemberat Plugs and socket-outlets 16 A V a. NBR does not require shutters on the apertures, a further source of non-compliance with IEC Moreover, the Italian plug is rated for up to 10 amperes although a ampere version exists with different and incompatible sizewhile the IEC plugs are rated for 13 amperes.


Retrieved from ” https: An advantage of the IEC plug types is smaller physical sizes. IEC plugs are rated up to 16A. They are nominally 609906-2 In the 60906–2 Union EU published recommendations advising against the harmonisation of domestic plug and socket systems in the EU. IEC plugs are similar in size and shape to the Europlug 6906-2, with the front profile being a flat hexagon. There are a number of non-compliance issues with IEC The sockets are small enough that two can be installed in the space taken by a single Schuko or BS socket.

According to the National Institute of Metrology Standardization and Industrial Quality in Brazil, the Brazilian Association of Technical Standards “began discussing the creation of a standard for plugs and sockets Plugs have partially insulated line and neutral pins.

The International Electrotechnical Commission IEC has developed an international standard V household plug 06906-2, to be used one day everywhere in Europe and other countries with V mains.
