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



Reference EN 60512-16-18:2008
Title Connectors for electronic equipment - Tests and measurements - Part 16-18: Mechanical tests on contacts and terminations - Test 16r: Deflection of contacts, simulation
Project Number 20903
Abstract/Scope IEC 60512-16-18:2008 details a standard test method to measure the deflection of a simulated contact in its cavity or housing. Although this test method is intended for cylindrical male contacts, and is particularly applicable to those where the contacts fit into an insert, which may have some elasticity, its use for contacts with other geometries and housing details, is not excluded.

Normative reference (6) EN 60512-1-1:2002

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
