Packaging of components for automatic handling - Part 2: Packaging of components with unidirectional leads on continuous tapes

IEC 60286-2 applies to the tape package of components with two or more unidirectional leads for use in electronic equipment. In general, the tape is applied to the component leads. It covers requirements for taping techniques used with equipment for automatic handling, preforming of leads, insertion and other operations and includes only those dimensions which are essential to the taping of components intended for the above-mentioned purposes. It cancels and replaces the second edition published in 1997 and its amendment 1 (2002) and constitutes a minor revision related to tables, figures and references.

Emballage de composants pour opérations automatisées - Partie 2: Emballage des composants à sorties unilatérales en bandes continues

La CEI 60286-2:2008 s'applique à l'emballage des composants à deux sorties unilatérales ou plus utilisés dans les équipements électroniques. En général, la bande est appliquée aux sorties des composants. La présente norme contient les exigences relatives aux techniques de mise sur bande applicables pour l'utilisation des équipements de manutention, de préformage des sorties, d'insertion et d'autres opérations automatiques. Elle fournit uniquement les dimensions essentielles pour la mise sur bande de composants destinés aux opérations mentionnées ci-dessus. Cette troisième édition annule et remplace la deuxième édition publiée en 1997 et son amendement 1 (2002) et constitue une révision technique mineure qui porte sur des tableaux, des schémas et des références.

PACKAGING OF COMPONENTS FOR AUTOMATIC HANDLING –
Part 2: Packaging of components with unidirectional
leads on continuous tapes
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 provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for any

equipment declared to be in conformity with an IEC Publication.

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 60286-2 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 40:

Capacitors and resistors for electronic equipment.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 1997 and its

amendment 1 (2002) and constitutes a minor revision related to tables, figures and references.

The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
40/1870/FDIS 40/1887/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this standard can be found in the report on

voting indicated in the above table.

This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

A list of all the parts of the IEC 60286 series, under the general title Packaging of components

for automatic handling, can be found on the IEC website.

The committee has decided that the contents of this publication will remain unchanged until

the maintenance result date indicated on the IEC web site under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in

the data related to the specific publication. At this date, the publication will be

• reconfirmed,
• withdrawn,
• replaced by a revised edition, or
• amended.

handling, preforming of leads, insertion and other operations and includes only those

dimensions which are essential to the taping of components intended for the above-mentioned

purposes.

NOTE 1 Components with a lead spacing of F = 3 × e may be delivered with the sprocket holes arranged between

the leads of the component (see Figure 4).

NOTE 2 Components with a lead spacing of F = 8 × e to 11 × e may be delivered with one or two sprocket holes

arranged between the leads of the component (see Figure 4).
3.1.4 Dimensions of either components position from abscissa
– Distance H
Between the abscissa and the bottom plane of the component body
H = 18 mm mm
Seating plane
The method for determining the seating plane is given in IEC 60717.

– For components with straight leads: The bottom of the component body, including any

projections which support the component on the printed board (line in parallel to the

reference abscissa through the bottom point nearest to the tape).

– For components with crimped (or otherwise preformed) leads: The seating plane depends

on the profile of the crimp, the diameter of the leads and the hole size in the printed board.

For this reason a reference plane is defined, for components with crimped leads only, as

follows.
Reference plane

The line parallel to the abscissa through the lowest centre of the radius of curvature of the

bending of the crimp (see Figure 5).

Diameter d of lead terminal select in accordance with IEC 60301.

diameters are 0,6 mm max.; and where lead spacing is F = 7,5 mm, the recommended lead

diameters are 0,8 mm max.

3.1.6 Maximum permissible deviation

From the nominal position: Maximum lateral deviation Δh of the component body vertical to

the tape plane: lΔhl = 2 mm max.
Maximum deviation of the component body in the tape plane ΔP: lΔpl = 1,3 mm max.

Maximum deviation of the component leads in the seating plane (valid from the upper edge of

the tape for all values of P to the seating plane or reference plane respectively) ΔP :

1 1
lΔP1l = 0,7 mm max.

P is the distance between the ordinate and the first lead of the following component (in the

direction of unreeling).
NOTE 1 For new designs, e = 2,5 mm should be used (see IEC 60097).

NOTE 2 When this option (sprocket holes between the leads) is used, care should be taken that the leads do not

interfere with the sprocket holes.

NOTE 3 For cases where interchangeability cannot be guaranteed, see the notes in 3.1.3.

3.1.7 Maximum permissible protrusion of the ends of the leads (see Figure 2)
– Protrusion L beyond the lower side of the carrier tape L = 2 mm max.

NOTE Market trend is towards smaller values.
– Protrusion L (In the case of cut-out components)

The length L of the residual leads beyond the upper tape edge measured from the abscissa:
