Introduction and scope

Fire hazard testing of electronic components is influenced by the following:

- Electronic components are made of heterogeneous materials in relatively small amounts arranged in such a complex construction that synergistic effects may be various and are generally unforeseeable.

- Functioning of electronic components implies a supply of electrical energy; in normal operation heat dissipation is generally small but sparks may be produced (e.g. by relays). However, when operated under faulty or abnormal conditions, a large amount of energy may be liberated as heat.

- Electronic components of various kinds are generally associated into equipments in quite a large number and for various purposes, so that each type of component has to perform in a wide range of situations and a typical situation can therefore not be defined. Only in exceptional cases where some components may be particularly dangerous or endangered with regard to fire hazard a study of the actual situation may be useful and specified requirements may be necessary.
