This resolution, with retroactive effect from 2018-05-03, repeals the previous Resolution RCS-431-2010 about the Homologation Process of devices operating in „banda libre“. Basically, only WLAN was listed so far, but now, many applications like RFID, SRD and RADARs have been added; the main changes are listed here.
No more family approval in Costa Rica
SUTEL no longer accepts family approval: from now on, each model with a different color, hardware or software will require a separate Type Approval certificate.
The Type A electrical plug (or flat blade attachment plug) is an ungrounded plug with two flat parallel pins. Although the American and Japanese plugs appear identical, the neutral pin on the American plug is wider than the live pin, whereas on the Japanese plug both pins are the same size. As a result, Japanese plugs can be used in the US but often not the other way around. The pins on Type A and Type B plugs have a hole near the tip that fits into ‘bumps’ found on the contact wipers of some sockets, so that the pins are gripped more tightly allowing for better contact and also to prevent the plug from slipping out of the socket. Some sockets have spring-action blades that grip the sides of the pins, making the holes obsolete.
The Type B electrical plug has two flat parallel pins and a round grounding (or earth) pin. The earth pin is longer than the other two so that the device is grounded before the power is connected. As with the type A plugs, the American and Japanese versions vary slightly. Type B plugs are rated at 15 amps.
