Standard Test Method for Determination of Tensile Strength by Mass Method for Stranded Conductors Intended for use in Electronic Application
|Publication Date:||1 April 2013|
|ICS Code (Wires and symmetrical cables):||33.120.20|
significance And Use:
4.1 This test method is designed as an inspection or acceptance test of tensile strength for stranded metallic conductors.
1.1 This test method covers the procedure for determining the tensile strength by a mass method for uninsulated stranded electrical conductors intended for use in electronic application (Explanatory Note 1).
1.1.1 The test method is intended for conductors that are one type of wire (non-composite). The wire type being plain, clad, or coated and stranded together to operate mechanically and electrically as a single conductor.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.3 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 establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Some specific hazards statements are given in Section 7 on Hazards.
