IEC 60512-17-2:2011 when required by the detail specification, is used for testing connectors within the scope of IEC technical committee 48. It may also be used for similar devices when specified in a detail specification. The object of this standard is to detail a standard method to assess the ability of a cable-clamping device to allow rotary movement of the cable/wire bundle without damage to the external surface of the cable/wire bundle, the cable-clamping device, the connector or the sub-assembly. This standard cancels and replaces Test 17b of IEC 60512-5, issued in 1992, and constitutes a technical revision.
This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 60512-1:2001 and IEC 60512-1-100:2006.
