PERFORMANCE STANDARD FOR AUTOMOTIVE ELECTRICAL CONNECTOR SYSTEMS
Procedures included within this specification are intended to cover performance testing at all phases of development, production, and field analysis of electrical terminals, connectors, and components that constitute the electrical connection systems in low voltage (0 - 20 VDC) road vehicle applications. These procedures are only applicable to terminals used for In-Line, Header, and Device connector systems. They are not applicable to Edge Board connector systems, > 20 VAC or DC, or to eyelet type terminals.
Note that this specification does not cover the mechanical assist portions of connectors that include such devices. The Authorized Person must provide details of any additional testing desired to validate these mechanisms as part of the test request/order.
