|ICS Code (Plug-and-socket devices. Connectors):||31.220.10|
This part of IEC 60352 is applicable to solderless press-in connections for use in electrical and electronic equipment and components.
The press-in connection consists of a termination having a suitable press-in zone which is inserted into a hole of a board.
Information on materials and data from industrial experience is included in addition to the test procedures to provide electrically stable connections under specified environmental conditions.
The object of this document is to determine the suitability of press-in connections under mechanical, electrical and atmospheric conditions as specified by the manufacturer of the press-in termination and to provide a means of comparing test results when the tools used to make the connections are of different designs or manufacture.
