IEC 60512-1 pdf download Connectors for electronic equipment – Tests and measurements – Part 1: General
1.1 Scope and object
This part of lEC 60512 is intended to be used as a basic specification. It contains basic testmethods and procedures which, when required by the detail specification, are used for testingconnectors within the scope of technical committee 48.They may also be used for similardevices when specified in a detail specification.
The object of this standard is to establish test methods and measurement procedures for usein specifications for connectors.
This standard is to be used in conjunction with the generic, sectional and detail specificationwhich will select and prescribe the tests to be used, the required degree of severity for each ofthem and the permissible performance limits. The detail specification will also specify the
deviations in procedure, which may be inevitable when applying a test to the type of componentunder consideration, and it will further specify any special procedures which may be required.
In the event of conflict between this basic specification and any individual component
specification, the requirements of the component specification will apply.
NOTE 1 RF connectors will not be dealt with by this technical committee as they will be covered by technicalcommittee 46, together with r.f.cables.
NOTE 2 Sockets for components such as crystals or electronic tubes will be considered in co-operation with therelevant technical committee.
NOTE 3 Safety requirements for switches will not be developed by this technical committee as they are covered bysubcommittee 23J.
