IEC 60512-1-100:2012 provides a listing of the 60512 series of standards for specific tests that are created for connectors. Further it gives cross-references with the former (60)512 standards, where different test numbers were used. The connector tests as such are mainly identical with the previously published standards; minor changes may be introduced due to technical developments (e.g. other soldering temperatures in soldering tests, resulting from the introduction of lead-free soldering). The former issues were in booklets, with several related tests in one document, while the present issues are leaflets, each featuring one single test. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2006. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This new edition reflects the status of publications in the IEC 60512 series as of September 1st 2011.
