Connecting Devices - Flat Quick-Connect Terminations for Electrical Copper Conductors - Safety Requirements
|Publication Date:||1 May 1993|
|ICS Code (Connecting devices):||29.120.20|
This International Standard applies to flat quick-connect terminations consisting of a male tab of size 2,8, 4,8, 6,3 or 9,5 mm (0,110, 0,187, 0,250, or 0,375 in) and a mating female connector for use as either an incorporated or an integrated part of an equipment or of a component, or as a separate entity, for connecting electrical copper conductors according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Said electrical copper conductors may be flexible or rigid stranded, having a cross-sectional area up to and including 6 mm2 (AWG equal to or qreater than 10) or rigid solid having a cross-sectional area up to and including 2,5 mm2 (AWG equal to or greater than 14).
The rated voltage by which electrical energy is utilized, shall not exceed 1 000 V a.c. with a frequency up to and including 1 000 Hz, and 1 500 V d.c. and having the temperature limits applicable to materials used within this standard.
Requirements for insulated male tabs and female connectors are under consideration.
1 This standard, where applicable, may be used for conductors made of material other than copper, but not including aluminium.
2 For reasons of safety, it is recommended that flat quick-connect terminations beyond the scope of this standard should not be interchangeable with those of this standard.
3 This standard does not apply to female connectors with positive locking means.
4 The flat quick-connect terminations covered by this standard are not intended to be disconnected by pulling the cable.
This standard does not apply to flat quick-connect terminations for data and signal circuits.
