1 Scope and object
This part of IEC 60352 is applicable to spring-clamp connections made with stripped wire without further preparation:
– solid conductors of 0,32 mm to 3,7 mm nominal diameter (0,08 mm 2 to 1 0 mm 2 crosssection), or
– stranded conductors of 0,08 mm 2 to 1 0 mm 2 cross-section, or
– flexible conductors of 0,08 mm 2 to 1 0 mm 2 cross-section
according to IEC 60228 or IEC 601 89-3 for use in telecommunication equipment and in electronic devices employing similar techniques.
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 spring-clamp connections under specified mechanical, electrical and atmospheric conditions.
NOTE IEC Guide 1 09 advocates the need to minimize the impact of a product on the natural environment throughout the product life cycle. It is understood that some of the materials permitted in this standard may have a negative environmental impact. As technological advances lead to acceptable alternatives for these materials, they will be eliminated from this standard.
