    IEC 60439-1 refers to a rated diversity factor that is the ratio of the maximum sum of the assumed currents of the main circuits (main breakers or incoming units and branch circuits or outgoing units) to the sum of the rated currents of the main circuits. Thus, the methodology for deriving this factor is somewhat different for the two standards.

  • Item Designations; or Why are relays called K in

    Countries using American standards use IEEE Std 315-1975 / ANSI Y32.2, Graphic symbols for electrical and electronic diagrams. Relays are called ‘K’ because IEC 60750 and IEEE 315 say so. This is a rare case of European standards agreeing with American standards! I haven’t found any reason why the letter ‘K’ was used in particular.
