Standard Test Methods for Measuring Resistance of Electrical Connections (Static Contacts)
|Publication Date:||1 April 2020|
|ICS Code (Connecting devices):||29.120.20|
These test methods cover equipment and techniques for measuring the resistance of static electrical connections such as wire terminations or splices, friction connectors, soldered joints, and wrapped-wire connections.
Measurements under two distinct levels of electrical loading are described. These levels are: (1) dry circuit, (2) and rated current. One or both of these levels of loading may be required in specific cases.
