Connecting devices – Flat quick-connect terminations for electrical copper conductors – Safety requirements
|Publication Date:||1 August 2010|
|ICS Code (Connecting devices):||29.120.20|
This International Standard applies to non-insulated flat quick-connect terminations consisting of a male tab of size 2,8 mm, 4,8 mm, 6,3 mm or 9,5 mm with hole or dimple detents 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. This standard establishes uniform requirements for the dimensions, performance characteristics and test program.
The connected electrical copper conductors shall be flexible or rigid stranded, having a crosssectional area up to and including 6 mm2 or rigid solid having a cross-sectional area up to and including 2,5 mm2. This standard shall not be used for connecting aluminum conductors.
The rated voltage 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.
NOTE 1 This standard, where applicable, may be used for conductors made of material other than copper.
NOTE 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.
NOTE 3 This standard does not apply to female connectors with positive locking means.
NOTE 4 The flat quick-connect terminations covered by this standard are not intended to be disconnected by pulling on the cable.
NOTE 5 Annex D provides additional information on non international units.
