Connectors for electronic equipment – Product requirements – Part 1: Generic specification
|Publication Date:||1 January 2019|
|ICS Code (Plug-and-socket devices. Connectors):||31.220.10|
This part of IEC 61076 establishes uniform specifications and technical information for connectors. This part of IEC 61076 is applicable to a family of connectors for use in electronic and electrical equipment; connectors designed for use at radio frequencies are not covered.
General considerations relating to specifications
This part of IEC 61076 contains, or gives reference to, the terms, definitions, symbols, test schedules and information relating to connectors.
It shall be used in conjunction with IEC Guide 109 that advocates the need to minimise the impact of a product on the natural environment throughout the product life cycle.
It is understood that some materials permitted by this specification and in manufacturing and assembly processes may have a negative environmental impact. As technological advantages lead to acceptable alternatives for these materials, they shall be eliminated from this specification. Inappropriate manufacturing processes should be replaced by a product design that features easy maintainability and disassembly.
In the event of conflict between this part of IEC 61076 and the sectional product specification, the requirements of the sectional product specification prevail.
