Which of the requirements in Article 10.06 apply to vessels built before 1 April 1976, starting on 1 January 2015?
When inspection certificates are renewed after 1 January 2015, vessels built before 1 April 1976 will have to meet the requirements of the 1976 version of the RVBR listed below. (This interpretation is valid for Articles 10.06, 10.10, 10.11(2), 10.12, 10.14, 10.15 and 10.17).
Article 10.06 Maximum permissible voltages (Article 6.02 RVBR 1976)
a) The following voltages may not be exceeded:
|Type of installation||Max. permitted voltages|
|Direct current||Single-phase alternating current||Three-phase alternating current|
|A||Power and heating installations, including the relevant outlets||250 V||250 V||500 V|
|B||Installations for lighting, and for communication, of orders and information, including the relevant outlets||250 V||250 V||-|
|C||Outlets for current supply to handheld appliances used on open decks or in confined or damp metal-enclosed spaces other than boilers and tanks:|
|1. in general||50 V||50 V||-|
|2. using an isolating transformer serving a single appliance: both wires in such circuits must be insulated||-||250 V||-|
|3. when using appliances with additional or double insulation||250 V||250 V||-|
|D||Outlets for current supply to handheld appliances used in boilers and tanks||50 V||50 V||-|
b) On condition that the required protective measures are observed, higher voltages are permitted:
- in installations for equipment for recharging batteries, depending on the recharging process;
