BS 1363-5:2008 13 A plugs, socket-outlets, adaptors and connection units. Specification for fused conversion plugs

BS 1363-5:2008 specifies requirements for 13 A fused conversion plugs for household, commercial and light industrial purposes, with particular reference to safety in normal use.

The scope of the standard covers two-pole plus earth conversion plugs that are either reusable or non-reusable and that are suitable for the connection of non-BS 1363 type plugs, conforming to a recognized standard, to socket-outlets conforming to
BS 1363-2. Two categories of conversion plugs are specified, covering normal and rough use.

The scope of BS 1363-5 is limited to devices that:

  • have insulating sleeves on line and neutral pins
  • have one plug portion and one set of contacts intended to connect to a non-BS 1363 type plug that conforms to the dimensional requirements of a standard listed in IEC TR 60083
  • are suitable for the connection of electrical equipment in a.c. circuits only, operating at voltages not exceeding 250 V r.m.s. at 50 Hz
  • that may have the un-terminated metal earth pin replaced with a similarly dimensioned insulated shutter opening device (ISOD) designed to operate the shutter mechanism of a socket-outlet conforming to BS 1363-2.

BS 1363 has four additional parts:

BS 1363-1:1995  13 A plugs, socket-outlets, adaptors and connection units. Specification for rewirable and non-rewirable 13 A fused plugs 

BS 1363-2:1995  13 A plugs, socket-outlets, adaptors and connection units. Specification for 13 A switched and unswitched socket-outlets

BS 1363-3:1995  13 A plugs, socket-outlets, adaptors and connection units. Specification for adaptors

BS 1363-4:1995  13 A plugs, socket-outlets, adaptors and connection units. Specification for 13 A fused connection units switched and unswitched
