and supplement 1 to DIN IEC 38/12.92
IEC standard voltages
At the end of 1993, the international standard IEC 38 IEC standard voltages was agreed.
In the framework of this standard it was not possible to standardize worldwide the applicable voltage values
220/380 V, 230/400 V and 240/415 V for 50 Hz low-voltage supply networks.
The supply nominal voltage should according to this standard not exceed the values 230/400 V + 6 %/10 %
during the transition period up to the year 2003.
Through these defined tolerances for the optional voltage of the networks, it is possible that 220/380 V rated
electrical equipment, as indicated in DIN IEC 38, can be used safely until the end of their service life.
All the considerations indicated above should be used at the existing value of 380/660 V in light of the new value
of 400/690 V.
Therefore, products that are tested, documented and labelled for 220/380 V have unlimited use in devices and
installations for 230/400 V supply voltage until the end of the transition period.

The installation instructions are also to be followed when installing our products in devices and systems.

New nominal supply voltages 30/400 V worldwide

Since the publication of standard IEC 38 in 1983, 230/400 V has replaced 220/380 V as international value for
public low-voltage networks.
The supply nominal voltage should according to this standard not exceed the values 230/400 V + 6 %/10 %,
i.e. the range between 244 V and 207 V, during the transition period up to the year 2003.

Through these defined tolerances for the optional voltage of the networks, it is possible that 220/380 V rated
electrical equipment, as indicated in DIN IEC 38, can be used safely until the end of their service life.
All the considerations indicated above should be used at the existing value of 380/660 V in light of the new
value of 400/690 V.
