ASTM B539 - 18

Standard Test Methods for Measuring Resistance of Electrical Connections (Static Contacts)

Status : Current   Published : November 2018



1.1 These test methods cover equipment and techniques for measuring the resistance of static electrical connections such as wire terminations or splices, friction connectors, soldered joints, and wrapped-wire connections.

1.2 Measurements under two distinct levels of electrical loading are described. These levels are: ( 1) dry circuit, ( 2) and rated current. One or both of these levels of loading may be required in specific cases.

1.3  This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to become familiar with all hazards including those identified in the appropriate Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for this product/material as provided by the manufacturer, to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices, and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.4  This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
