International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 60352-8:2011
Title Solderless connections - Part 8: Compression mount connections - General requirements, test methods and practical guidance
Project Number 22636
Abstract/Scope IEC 60352-8:2011 Is applicable to compression mount connections with metallic spring contacts for use in telecommunication equipments and in other electronic devices employing similar techniques. Information on materials and data from industrial experience are 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 compression mount connections under specified electrical, mechanical and atmospheric conditions and to provide a means of comparing test results when the tools used to make the connectors are of different designs or manufacture.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
