The couplers are intended for the interconnection of the electrical supply to electrical appliances or equipment. Annex ZZ lists variations for Australian and New Zealand conditions.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This clause of AS/NZS 60320.1 is replaced as follows:This standard is applicable to two-pole interconnection couplers for a.c. only, with and without earthing contact, with a rated voltage not exceeding 250 V and a rated current not exceeding 16 A, for household and similar appliances and equipment and intended for the interconnection of the electrical supply to electrical appliances or equipment for 50 Hz or 60 Hz supply. NOTE 1 – Appliance outlets integrated in or incorporated in appliances or other equipment are within the scope of this standard. The dimensional and general requirements of this standard apply to such outlets, but certain tests may not be relevant. NOTE 2 – The requirements for plug connectors are based on the assumption that the temperature of the socket contacts of the corresponding appliance outlets does not exceed 65 °C.NOTE 3 – Interconnection couplers complying with this standard are suitable for use at ambient temperatures not normally exceeding 25 °C, but occasionally reaching 35°C.NOTE 4 – Interconnection couplers complying with the standard sheets in this standard are intended for the interconnection of appliances or equipment having no special protection against moisture; for the interconnection of other appliances or equipment and of an appliance or equipment which is subject to spillage of liquid in normal use, additional requirements are necessary.NOTE 5 – Special constructions may be required – in locations where special conditions prevail as, for example, in ships, vehicles and the like;– in hazardous locations, for example, where explosions are liable to occur.
