Scope and object
This part of IEC 60352 is applicable to solderless press-in connections for use in telecommunication equipment and in electronic devices employing similar techniques.
The press-in connection consists of a termination having a suitable press-in zone which is inserted into a plated-through hole of a double-sided or multilayer printed board.
Information on materials and data from industrial experience is included in addition to the test procedures to provide electrically stable connections under prescribed environmental conditions.
The object of this part of IEC 60352 is to determine the suitability of press-in connections under specified mechanical, electrical and atmospheric conditions.
Only compliant press-in zones can be qualified according to this part of IEC 60352.
Solid press-in zones are in use. Information about these is given in Annex A.
