BS EN 60068-2-6:2008

Environmental testing. Tests. Test Fc. Vibration (sinusoidal)

Status : Current   Published : March 2008



BS EN 60068-2-6:2008 gives a method of test which provides a standard procedure to
determine the ability of components, equipment and other articles to withstand specified severities of sinusoidal vibration.

The purpose of this test is to determine any mechanical weakness and/or degradation in the specified performance of specimens and to use this information, in conjunction with the relevant specification, to decide upon the acceptability of the specimens. In some cases, the test method may also be used to demonstrate the mechanical robustness of specimens and/or to study their dynamic behaviour. Categorization of components can also be made on the basis of a selection from within the severities quoted in the test.

This update includes agreed wording on the testing of soft packages and the addition of test report requirements. Certain terms have been defined to facilitate a proper understanding of the text.

BS EN 60068-2-6:2008 supersedes BS EN 60068-2-6:1996 which is withdrawn.
