Standard Test Method for Durability Wear Testing of Separable Electrical Connector Systems Using Electrical Resistance Measurements
|Publication Date:||10 June 2003|
|ICS Code (Plugs, socket-outlets, couplers):||29.120.30|
1.1 This test method covers the effects of repeated insertion and withdrawal of separable electrical connectors which are harmful to the electrical performance of the connector.
1.2 This test method is limited to electrical connectors designed for use in applications where the current through any one connection in the connector does not exceed 5 A, and where the connector may be separated a number of times during the life of the connector.
1.3 This test method is limited to electrical connectors intended for use in air ambients where the operating temperature is less than 65°C.
1.4 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 become familiar with all hazards including those identified in the appropriate Material Safety Data Sheet for this product/material as provided by the manufacturer, to establish appropriate safety and health practices, and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
