Solderless connections – Part 2: Crimped connections – General requirements, test methods and practical guidance
|1 June 2013
|ICS Code (Plug-and-socket devices. Connectors):
Scope and object
This part of IEC 60352 is applicable to solderless crimped connections made with stranded wires of 0,05 mm2 to 10 mm2 cross-section or solid wires of 0,25 mm to 3,6 mm diameter and appropriately designed uninsulated or pre-insulated crimp barrels for use in telecommunication equipment and in electronic devices employing similar techniques.
Information on the materials and data from industrial experience is included in addition to the test procedures to provide electrically stable connections under prescribed environmental conditions.
NOTE This part of IEC 60352 is not intended to be applicable to crimping of coaxial cables.
The object of this part of IEC 60352 is to determine the suitability of solderless crimped connections under specified mechanical, electrical and atmospheric conditions and to provide a means of comparing test results when the tools used to make the connections are of different designs or manufacture.
