Electrical tests

High voltage test

High voltage test

  • IEC 60512-4-1
    • During this test, each contact is tested against each neighboring contact or potential by applying a defined test voltage. The measuring and test procedure for the connectors for electronic installations is in accordance with IEC 60512-4-1.
       
Insulation resistance

Insulation resistance

  • IEC 60512-3-1
    • During this test, every contact is tested against every neighboring contact or potential according to procedure A in IEC 60512-3-1. The Insulation Resistance Test consists of measuring the insulation resistance of a device under test, where the measured resistance has to be higher than the indicated limit from the international standards.
       
Impulse withstand voltage test

Impulse withstand voltage test

  • IEC 60664-1
    • Verification of adequately large air and creepage distances between the two adjacent potentials is provided by the impulse withstand voltage test.
    • The amount of the test voltage depends on the rated surge voltage of the component. Flashovers may not occur during three power surges (1.2/50 μs) per polarity. The reliable use of the components is confirmed by this test.
       
Contact resistance

Contact resistance

  • IEC 60512-2-1
    • The contact resistance is measured by applying the Millivolt level method. The test is based on IEC 60512-2-1. The object of this test is to define a standard test method to measure the electrical resistance across a pair of mated contacts or a contact with a measuring gauge. The contact resistance is considered a benchmark for the quality of a cordset. By measuring before and after testing, the reliability of the contact is verified according the requirements of the standard.
