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



Reference EN 60068-2-54:2006
Title Environmental testing - Part 2-54: Tests - Test Ta: Solderability testing of electronic components by the wetting balance method
Project Number 16241
Abstract/Scope Outlines Test Ta, solder bath wetting balance method applicable for any shape of component terminations to determine the solderability. It is especially suitable for reference testing and for components that cannot be quantitatively tested by other methods. For surface mounting devices (SMD), IEC 60068-2-69 should be applied if it is suitable. It provides the standard procedures for solder alloys containing lead (Pb) and for lead-free solder alloys.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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