In the process of industrial production, electrical products exported to the UK are likely to involve the problem of plugs. Mr. Wang from gmtlight testing department and you will learn about the plugs used in the UK. I hope it will help you.

What is an British plug? Do you need to bring universal change-over plug to the UK?

british plug

British plug refers to the power plug with British standard as reference standard, also known as BS (British Standard) plug. There are two types of British plug: assembly type and injection type. The assembly type British plug is detachable and can be customized freely, while the injection type is generally integrated molding and cannot be detachable. The common British Standards on the market are bs1363, bs546, bs5733, etc., which stipulate a standard that must be followed when a product enters the UK. The British plug is not only suitable for the UK itself, but also for other countries (for example, it was once a British colony) because of historical reasons, such as Nigeria, Tanzania, India, Pakistan, Malaysia, Singapore, Maldives, Hong Kong, China and other countries.

Rated voltage of British plug is 230V

The British plug has three square pins, including "E, l, n" three poles, e (earth) is the ground wire, l (Live) is the live wire, and n (null) is the zero wire. It follows the principle of "left zero and right fire middle". Generally speaking, the plug will be marked. The British plug is also marked with corresponding current and voltage values, and the fused British plug will be marked with "fused". The distance between the three copper pins of the British plug is the same. Its l-pole and N-pole pins are covered with glue, which plays a role of safety protection.

The British plug can be used as a complete set of electrical appliances, and can be used in industrial, residential, commercial and other places. In particular, the British plug exports to the UK, the need for BS certification, if the export is India and other countries and regions, the certification requirements are not strict. In addition, some countries need their own certification when importing British plugs. For example, Saudi Arabia also uses British plugs, but when we export plugs to Saudi Arabia, we need Saudi certification SASO.

In addition, when traveling to the UK, don't forget to bring universal adapter, otherwise you will be very passive.

Load test of British plug

Taking the assembled British plug as an example, the test was carried out according to the bs1363 plug standard 1363 plug. Under the condition of load, the temperature of copper foot shall not exceed 37 ℃ of room temperature (the temperature after 4 hours of test), i.e. the temperature rise shall be 37 ℃, and the online position of live line and zero line shall not exceed 52 ℃ of room temperature. Within the temperature range, the product is qualified, otherwise it is unqualified.

Take 13A British plug fuse as the sample, and test according to BS1362 standard. Fuse tube is rated to carry 1.9 times of current and must be fused within half an hour; fuse tube is rated to carry 1.6 times of current and cannot be fused within half an hour.

What are the specifications of the British plug?

Rated voltage: 230V

Rated current: 3A, 5A, 10a, 13A

Color: regular black, white, transparent, pink, green, gray and other colors, color matching.

Fuse: comply with BS1362 standard, ASTA certification.

Suitable areas: Britain, Hongkong, Singapore, Malaysia, Middle East countries, India, Pakistan, Vietnam, Bahrain islands, Bhutan, Brunei, Indonesia, Botswana, Cyprus, Garner, Kenya, Maldives, Qatar, Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe, etc.

"If you can't get BS certification, you don't need to bring the plug on the products exported to the UK. You can configure the plug locally. In addition, the production cost of the British plug is slightly higher, and the price increase it brings to the product itself cannot be ignored. " Marketing Department of gmtlight, Mr. Niu.

在工业生产过程中,出口英国的电器产品很可能会涉及到插头的问题。gmtlight检测部王先生和大家一起来学习一下英国使用的插头,希望对您有帮助。

英式插头专指以英国标准作为参考准则的电源插头,也称为BS(british standard )插头。英式插头有组装式与注塑式之分,组装式英式插头可拆,可自由个性化定制,而注塑式一般是一体化成型,不可拆。市场上常见的英国标准有BS1363、BS546、BS5733等,它们规定了一个产品进入英国必须要遵循的标准。英式插头不仅适用于英国本身,其他国家也因为历史的原因(如曾经是英国殖民地)就延用了它的标准,如尼日利亚、坦桑尼亚、印度、巴基斯坦、马来西亚、新加坡、马尔代夫、中国香港等国家地区。

英式插头的额定电压为 230v

英式插头是三个方脚插,有“E、L、N”三极,E(Earth)极为地线,L (Live)级为火线,N(Null)极为零线,遵循“左零右火地中间”,一般来说插头上都会有标识。英式插头上还标识有相应的电流、电压值,带保险丝的英式插头会标有“FUSED”的字样。英式插头三个铜脚上下左右间距相同,它的L极与N极插脚包胶,起安全保护作用。

英式插头可作为配套电器使用,可用于工业、家庭住宅、商业等场所。特别地,英式插头出口英国时,需有BS认证,若出口的是印度等其他国家地区,对认证则要求不严格。另外,有个别国家进口英式插头时还需本国的认证,如沙特国家也使用英式插头,但我们出口插头到沙特国家时,还需有沙特的认证SASO。

另外出差到英国,不要忘记带万能转换插头,否则会非常被动。

英国插头的负载测试

以组装式英式插头为样,依据BS1363插头标准1363插头进行测试。在负载的情况下,铜脚温度不超过室温的37℃(测试4小时后的温度),即温升37℃,火线、零线上线位不超过室温的52℃。在温度范围内,即可合格品,反之不合格。

以13A英式插头保险丝为样,依据BS1362标准进行测试。熔丝管额定值承载1.9倍电流,半个小时内须熔断;熔丝管额定值承载1.6倍电流,半个小时内不能熔断。

英式插头的相关规格参数是什么?

额定电压:230V

额定电流:3A、5A、10A、13A

颜色:常规黑色、白色,还有透明、粉红、绿、灰等颜色,可配色。

保险丝:符合BS1362标准,ASTA认证。

适用地区:英国,香港,新加坡,马来西亚,中东各国,印度,巴基斯坦,越南,巴林群岛,不丹,文莱,印度尼西亚,博茨瓦纳,塞浦路斯,加纳,肯尼亚,马尔代夫,卡塔尔,津巴布韦,也门,坦桑尼亚等。

“如果不能取得BS认证,一般不要在出口英国产品上带插头,用户可以在本地配置插头。另外英国插头的生产成本略高,也不能忽略它给产品本身带来的价格提升。” gmtlight的市场部,牛先生。
