IEC 62019 pdf download Electrical accessories – Circuit-breakers and similar equipment for household use – Auxiliary contact units
1 Scope and object
This International Standard applies to auxiliary electromechanical contact units associated (or intended to be associated) with circuit-breakers for overcurrent protection, and with residual current operated circuit-breakers with or without integral overcurrent protection for household and similar installations, having a rated voltage not exceeding 440 V a.c. and 250 V d.c., and a rated current not exceeding 1 0 A.
NOTE 1 These requirements may also be used as guidance for auxiliary contacts units intended to be assembled with other switching devices for household and similar installations.
NOTE 2 It is recommended that the advice of the manufacturer be sought concerning any application with low level energy appliances (low level values of current and/or voltage.) For low-energy contacts, specific recommendations are given in IEC 60947-5-4.
The object of this standard is to state
a) the characteristics of the auxiliary contact units;
b) their electrical and mechanical requirements with respect to
1 ) the various duties to be performed;
2) the significance of the rated characteristics and of the markings;
3) the tests to verify the rated characteristics;
c) the functional requirements to be satisfied by the auxiliary contact units with respect to
1 ) environmental conditions, including those of enclosed equipment;
2) dielectric properties;
3) terminals;
4) safety of use.

3 Definitions
For the purpose of this International Standard, the following definitions apply.
auxiliary contact
contact included in an auxiliary circuit and mechanically operated by the switching device [IEV 441 -1 5-1 0]
auxiliary contact unit
unit containing one or more control and/or auxiliary contacts mechanically operated by a main switching device
NOTE The main switching device may be a circuit-breaker, RCCB, RCBO, switch, etc.
4 Classification
Contact elements may be classified as follows.
4.1 According to the utilization categories (see table 1 of 5.4)
4.2 According to the electrical ratings based on utilization categories (see table 4)
4.3 According to one of the following constructions (see figure 1 )
4.3.1 Form A – Single-gap make-contact element
4.3.2 Form B – Single-gap break-contact element
4.3.3 Form C – Single-gap make-break three terminal change-over contact element
4.3.4 Other types (see note 1 )
4.4 According to the suitability for PELV and SELV circuits
NOTE 1 Other types are described in figure 1 . (See also clause 3 and figure 4 of IEC 60947-5-1 ).
