Mechanical structures for electronic equipment - Tests for IEC 60917 and IEC 60297 - Part 5: Seismic tests for chassis, subracks and plug-in units

IEC 61587-5:2013 specifies seismic test requirements for chassis, subracks, and plug-in units as defined in the IEC 60297 and IEC 60917 series. It applies in whole or in part, only to the mechanical structures of chassis, subracks, and plug-in units for electronic equipment, according to the IEC 60297 and IEC 60917 series, and does not apply to electronic components, equipment or systems within the mechanical structures. The object of this standard is to establish a level of physical integrity of chassis, subracks, and plug-in units according to IEC 60297 and IEC 60917 series that may provide a level of survivability that will preserve functionality during and after a seismic occurrence. It is intended to provide the user with a high level of confidence in the selection of an equipment practice to meet such needs. Since IEC 60297 and IEC 60917 series chassis, subracks, and plug-in units come in many sizes, weights and mechanical complexities, it is not possible to define a single minimum seismic test requirement for all weight categories. Therefore, overall mass categories are defined in this standard. However, the mass distribution inside a chassis and subrack is considered 'application-specific' and herein defined as 'intended use'. Key words: chassis, subracks, plug-in units, seismic tests

Structures mécaniques pour équipement électronique - Essais pour la CEI 60917 et la CEI 60297 - Partie 5: Essais sismiques pour châssis, bacs et unités enfichables

L'IEC 61587-5:2013 spécifie les exigences d'essai sismique pour les châssis, les bacs et les unités enfichables tels que définis dans les séries CEI 60297 et CEI 60917. Elle s'applique, en tout ou en partie, seulement aux structures mécaniques des châssis, des bacs et des unités enfichables pour les équipements électroniques, conformément aux séries CEI 60297 et CEI 60917, et ne s'applique pas aux équipements ou systèmes électroniques, aux équipements ou aux systèmes qui se trouvent à l'intérieur de ces structures mécaniques. L'objet de la présente norme est d'établir un niveau d'intégrité physique des châssis, des bacs et des unités enfichables, conformément aux séries CEI 60297 et CEI 60917, qui peut fournir un niveau de pérennité qui protégera la fonctionnalité pendant et après une occurrence sismique. L'objectif est d'aider l'utilisateur à mieux choisir une structure appropriée pour satisfaire à ses besoins spécifiques. Les châssis, les bacs et les unités enfichables décrits dans les CEI 60297 et CEI 60917 ont diverses tailles, poids et complexités mécaniques; aussi, on ne peut pas définir une seule exigence d'essai sismique minimum pour toutes les catégories de poids. Des catégories de masse globales sont donc définies dans cette norme. La distribution de masse à l'intérieur d'un châssis et d'un bac, toutefois considérée comme 'spécifique à l'application', est ici définie dans son 'utilisation prévue'. Mots clés: châssis, bacs, unités enfichables, essai sismique

Mehanske konstrukcije za elektronsko opremo - Preskusi za IEC 60917 in IEC 60297 - 5. del: Potresni preskusi za šasije, okvire in vtične enote (IEC 61587-5:2013)

EN IEC 61587-5 določa potresne preskuse za šasije, okvire in vtične enote, kot jih določajo standardi iz serij IEC 60297 in IEC 60917. V celoti ali v delih velja le za mehanske strukture šasij, okvirov in vtičnih enot elektronske opreme v skladu s standardi iz serij IEC 60297 in IEC 60917 ter ne velja za elektronske komponente, opremo ali sisteme znotraj mehanskih struktur. Cilj tega standarda je določiti raven fizične celovitosti šasij, okvirov in vtičnih enot v skladu s standardi iz serij IEC 60297 in IEC 60917, ki lahko zagotovijo raven preživetja za ohranjanje delovanja med seizmičnimi pojavi in po njih. Uporabniku naj bi zagotovil visoko raven samozavesti pri izbiri pripomočkov, ki bodo ustrezali njegovim potrebam. Šasije, okviri in vtične enote iz serij IEC 60297 in IEC 60917 so na voljo v različnih velikostih, imajo različno težo in različno raven mehanične kompleksnosti, zato ni mogoče določiti enotne minimalne zahteve potresnega preskusa za vse kategorije teže. Zato ta standard določa splošne kategorije teže. Vendar se šteje, da je porazdelitev mase znotraj šasije in okvirov „namenjena določenemu načinu uporabe“, zato je določena kot „predvidena uporaba“. Enoosna ali triosna pospešitev za potresno preskušanje je izbirna.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 61587-5 has been prepared by subcommittee 48D: Mechanical

structures for electronic equipment, of IEC technical committee 48: Electromechanical

components and mechanical structures for electronic equipment.

INTRODUCTION

This standard is based on IEC 61587-2: Mechanical structures for electronic equipment –

Tests for IEC 60917 and IEC 60297 – Part 2: Seismic tests for cabinets and racks and ATIS-

0600329:2008:Network Equipment – Earthquake Resistance.

This standard sets forth test setups, performance requirements, and acceptance criteria for

determining the robustness of chassis, subracks, and associated plug-in units according to

the IEC 60297 and IEC 60917 series that may provide a level of survivability and preserve

functionality during and after a seismic occurrence (an earthquake). This standard does not

replace regional seismic system, installation standards, or specifications.

The intent of this standard is to provide a common methodology to perform and report seismic

test conformance of chassis, subracks, and plug-in units according to the IEC 60297 and

IEC 60917 series within a specified weight category. Mass distribution is based on the

intended use. The terms “intended use” or “simulation of service condition” or “worst-case

simulated configuration” are widely used in the telecom industry but also in the electronics

industry.

Seismic ground motion occurs simultaneously and randomly in all directions. Single-axis or

tri-axis tests may be selected to simulate the seismic environment for testing.

MECHANICAL STRUCTURES FOR ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT –
TESTS FOR IEC 60917 AND IEC 60297 –
Part 5: Seismic tests for chassis, subracks and plug-in units
1 Scope and object

This part of IEC 61587 specifies seismic test requirements for chassis, subracks, and plug-in

units as defined in the IEC 60297 and IEC 60917 series. It applies in whole or in part, only to

the mechanical structures of chassis, subracks, and plug-in units for electronic equipment,

according to the IEC 60297 and IEC 60917 series, and does not apply to electronic

components, equipment or systems within the mechanical structures.

NOTE Subracks may be an integral part of a chassis (often called in the industry a shelf or a crate).

The object of this standard is to establish a level of physical integrity of chassis, subracks,

and plug-in units according to IEC 60297 and IEC 60917 series that may provide a level of

survivability that will preserve functionality during and after a seismic occurrence. It is

intended to provide the user with a high level of confidence in the selection of an equipment

practice to meet such needs.

Since IEC 60297 and IEC 60917 series chassis, subracks, and plug-in units come in many

sizes, weights and mechanical complexities, it is not possible to define a single minimum

seismic test requirement for all weight categories. Therefore, overall mass categories are

defined in this standard. However, the mass distribution inside a chassis and subrack is

considered “application-specific” and herein defined as “intended use”.
The single-axis or tri-axis acceleration for the seismic testing is selectable.

5 Test waveform and acceleration condition
5.1 General

The parameters such as time history, zero period acceleration, damping ratio, and severities

(frequency range, required response spectrum, acceleration per axis) have been derived from

methods stated in IEC 60068-3-3, IEC 60068-2-57 and environment zone 4 as defined in

IEC 60721-2-6.
5.2 General conditions
The tests shall be performed as follows:
a) The test waveform for the seismic test shall be a synthesized waveform.

b) The test shall be performed either with single-axis or tri-axis condition, as defined in this

standard and reported accordingly.

c) The duration of the strong part of the time history is defined from the time when the plot

first reaches 25 % of the maximum value to the time when it falls for the last time to the

25 % level.

d) The TRS (Test Response Spectrum) shall equal or exceed the RRS (Required Response

Spectrum) as shown in Figure 1 (for single-axis) and Figure 3 (for tri-axis). The damping

ratio of 3 % or 2 % is applied to evaluate the TRS and RRS, and is not applied to the

frequency range less than 0,5 Hz and more than 50 Hz. The value of g (standard

acceleration of gravity of the earth), is rounded up to the nearest whole number, that is

10 m/s .
e) The test waveform shall satisfy the RRS.

f) It is acceptable that the TRS is lower than the RRS typically found at the frequency range

lower than half or larger than twice the 1 natural frequency, but shall not exceed 20 % of

RRS.

g) If the TRS does not satisfy the RRS with the limitation of the displacement of the vibration

table, the TRS shall meet at the frequency range equal to or larger than 1 Hz.
5.3 Single-axis acceleration
a) Accelerate each axis of the vibration table independently.

b) The acceleration of the vibration table is measured during the test as described in 6.2.7 b)

and 6.3.6 b).

c) The duration of the strong part of the time history shall be equal to or more than 18 s.

d) The zero period acceleration of the input test wave shall be 16 m/s , the RRS shall be

according to Figure 1.
e) The time history of the test wave is per Figure 2.
