Solderless connections – Part 3: Accessible insulation displacement (ID) connections – General requirements, test methods and practical guidance
|1 April 2020
|ICS Code (Connecting devices):
This part of IEC 60352 is applicable to ID connections which are accessible for tests and measurements according to Clauses 6 through 8 and which are made with:
- appropriately designed accessible ID terminations,
- wires having solid round conductors of 0,25 mm to 3,6 mm nominal diameter,
- wires having stranded conductors of 0,05 mm2 to 10 mm2 cross-sectional area,
for use in electrical and electronic equipment and components.
Information on materials and data from industrial experience is included in addition to the test procedures to provide electrically stable connections under prescribed environmental conditions.
There are different designs and materials for accessible ID terminations in use. For this reason only fundamental parameters of the termination are specified, while the performance requirements of the wire and the complete connection are specified in full detail.
The purpose of this document is:
- to determine the suitability of accessible ID connections under specified mechanical, electrical and atmospheric conditions;
- to provide a means of comparing test results when the tools used to make the connections, if any, are of different designs or manufacture.
