|Publication Date:||1 February 2012|
|ICS Code (Plug-and-socket devices. Connectors):||31.220.10|
This part of IEC 60352 is applicable to solderless press-in connections for use in telecommunication equipment and in electronic devices employing similar techniques.
The press-in connection consists of a termination having a suitable press-in zone which is inserted into a plated-through hole of a double-sided or multilayer printed board.
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.
The object of this part of IEC 60352 is to determine the suitability of press-in connections under mechanical, electrical and atmospheric conditions as specified by the manufacturer of the press-in termination and to provide a means of comparing test results when the tools used to make the connections are of different designs or manufacture.
