Active Standard

IEEE C37.13-2015

IEEE Standard for Low-Voltage AC Power Circuit Breakers Used in Enclosures

The following enclosed low-voltage ac power circuit breakers are covered in this standard: a) stationary or drawout type of two-, three-, or four-pole construction, with one or more rated maximum voltages of 1058 V, 730 V, 635 V (600 V for units incorporating fuses), 508 V, or 254 V for application on systems having nominal voltages of 1000 V, 690 V, 600 V, 480 V, or 240 V; b) unfused or fused circuit breakers; c) manually or power operated; and d) with or without electromechanical or electronic trip devices. Service conditions, ratings, functional components, temperature limitations and classifications of insulating materials, insulation (dielectric) withstand voltage requirements, test procedures, application, and the preferred ratings are discussed in this standard.

PC37.13

Standard for Low-Voltage AC (1058 V and Below) Power Circuit Breakers Used in Enclosures

This standard covers the following types and preferred ratings for enclosed low-voltage ac power circuit breakers: a) Stationary or drawout type of two-, three-, or four-pole construction with one or more rated maximum voltages of 1058 V, 730 V, 635 V (600 V for units incorporating fuses), 508 V, or 254 V for application on systems having nominal voltages of 1000 V, 690 V, 600 V, 480 V, or 240 V respectively b) Unfused or fused type c) Manually operated or power operated, with or without a trip system d) Fused drawout assemblies consisting of current-limiting fuses in a drawout assembly intended to be connected in series with a low-voltage ac power circuit breaker to form a nonintegrally fused circuit breaker; In this standard, the term circuit breaker shall mean enclosed low-voltage ac power circuit breaker, either fused or unfused. The term unfused circuit breaker shall mean a circuit breaker without either integrally or nonintegrally mounted fuses, and the term fused circuit breaker shall mean a circuit breaker incorporating current-limiting fuses, whether integrally mounted or nonintegrally mounted.

C37.13-1990

IEEE Standard for Low-Voltage AC Power Circuit Breakers Used in Enclosures

This standard covers enclosed low-voltage AC power circuit breakers of the stationary or draw-out type of two- or three-pole construction, with one or more rated maximum voltages of 635 V (600 V for units incorporating fuses), 508 V, and 254 V for application on systems having nominal voltages of 600 V, 480 V, and 240 V; with unfused or fused circuit breakers; manually or power operated; and with or without electromechanical or solid-state trip devices. It deals with service conditions, ratings, functional components, temperature limitations and classifications of insulating materials, insulation (dielectric) withstand voltage requirements, test procedures, and application.
