This test is divided into two procedures. The first simulates falls which a specimen, normally in the unpacked state, could undergo during handling and is normally restricted to two falls from a prescribed attitude onto a specified surface from a specified height.
The second procedure simulates repeated falls which may occur to such devices as connectors or small remote control units which are normally attached to cables during use. Repeated fails onto a specified surface from a specified height are achieved by using a suitable apparatus, e.g. a tumbling (rotating) barrel.
