Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 10 October 1998
Status: inactive
Page Count: 4
scope:

The techniques described in this guide apply to electrical circuits that include one or more electrical contacts in devices such as slip rings, separable connectors, electromechanical relays or closed switch contacts. The user should determine applicability for other devices.

The range of techniques described apply to circuit discontinuities (intermittences) of durations ranging from approximately 10 nanoseconds to several seconds and of sufficient magnitude to cause alteration of the circuit function. Extension of the guide to shorter duration events may be possible with suitable instrumentation. Events of longer duration may be monitored by techniques for dc measurements such as those described in Test Methods B539 or by adaptation of methods described in this guide.

The techniques described in this guide apply to electrical circuits carrying currents typical of signal circuits. Such currents are generally less than 100 ma. Extension of these techniques to circuits carrying larger currents may be possible, but the user should evaluate applicability first.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to become familiar with all hazards including those identified in the appropriate Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for this product/material as provided by the manufacturer, to establish appropriate safety and health practices, and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
