IEC 60115-1 FIXED RESISTORS FOR USE IN ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT – Part 1: Generic specification

This generic specification establishes standard terms, inspection procedures and methods of test for use in subordinate sectional and detail specifications describing fixed resistors of various types:

  • Low power film resistors with leads;
  • Power resistors;
  • Resistors for surface mount assembly;
  • Resistor arrays and networks.

This 5th Edition is a complete editorial and technical revision, up to date with the latest ISO/IEC Directives, and providing a well-structured range of test methods:

  • Electrical measurements and tests;
  • Endurance tests;
  • Electrical overload tests;
  • Mechanical measurements and tests;
  • Environmental and climatic tests;
  • Test related to component assembly;
  • Tests related to safety.

The application of this specification within a quality assessment system is supported by an Annex providing links to the applicable procedures of IECQ, and by another Annex supporting the assessment of established reliability and a failure rate level. The revision of this generic specification has resulted in a new document structure, and therefore in new clause numbers for many commonly referenced items. The Annex X provides a cross reference for assisting any reader in tracking such references.
