C13/C14 and C15/C16 connectors for up to 15 A (IEC maximum is 10 A)
C15/C16’s temperature rating is 120 °C rather than the 70 °C of the similar C13/C14 combination.
C19/C20 and C21/C22 connectors for up to 20 A (IEC maximum is 16 A)
Residual Current Device¶
RCD - Residual Current Device RCCB - Residual Current Circuit Breaker RCBO - Residual Current circuit Breakers integral Over current protection ELCB - Earth Leakage Circuit Breaker
RCD is the term that covers a family of devices.
RCCBs are RCDs without any overload protection.
RCBOs are RCDs with overcurrent protection included in the device.
CBRS are circuit breakers with residual current protection which may or may not be integral.
SRCDS are socket outlets with RCD protection.
PRCDS are RCDS built in to a plug.
MRCDS are independantly mounted devices that provide a signal to trip another device.
SRCBOS are sockets incorporating an RCD and overcurrent protection.
RCDs without overcurrent protection must be protected by a separate overcurrent device.
