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 61076-1 has been prepared by subcommittee 48B: Connectors, of

IEC technical committee 48: Electromechanical components and mechanical structures for

electronic equipment.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition issued in 1995, its amendment 1

(1996) and its amendment 2 (2001) and constitutes a technical revision. Modifications with

respect to the previous edition are described in the introduction.
This standard is to be used in conjunction with IEC 62197-1:2006.

INTRODUCTION

The objective of this work is to update the quality assessment procedures of the connector

specifications to the current state of the art industrial procedures.

At the time of publication, all the connector detail specifications dealt with by subcommittee

48B of the International Electrotechnical Commission were built as described in Figure 1 with

5 major chapters.

The most significant out of date procedures relate to the lot-by-lot tests with different

inspection levels and acceptance quality level and to the periodic tests with permitted number

of defectives.

It was felt necessary to introduce the capability and the technology approval together with the

basic design parameters of statistical process control as a feed back system to have a

continuous control of the quality during the various steps of manufacture.

It was also felt appropriate to split the current documentation structure into two separate

structures of documents which, in the day to day use of specifications, satisfy most users, see

Figure 2.
The documentation system will be split into two parts:
• Product requirements
• Quality assessment requirements

The structure for the Product Specification contains characteristics, dimensions, performance

requirements and test schedules.

The structure for the quality assessment specification contains the requirements to obtain

Qualification Approval (QA) for a given performance level (per environment category),

Capability Approval (CA) per family of connectors or Technology Approval (TA) comprising all

relevant technologies for connector production.

Capability Approval or Technology Approval combined with statistical process control

parameters are intended to replace lot-by-lot and periodic tests.

To fully certify a product, a combination of the two structures will have to be selected by the

user, keeping in mind that in the statistical process control, key characteristics shall be

agreed between manufacturer and user.

A generic product specification with a 4 level structure consists of a generic, a sectional, a

blank detail and a detail specification.

From this, it can be concluded that two generic specifications are being circulated, one

document for the product aspects and a second one for the quality aspects.

The sectional specifications will be presented at the product level per family of connectors, for

example printed board connectors, circular connectors, rectangular connectors, etc.

The objective of this 2 Edition is to review and update the actual connector specifications

containing product and quality assessment requirements.

Today, all the connector detail specifications dealt with by Subcommittee 48B of the

International Electrotechnical Commission are prepared as described in figure 1 with 5 major

chapters.

The most significant out of date procedures relate to the lot-by-lot tests with different

inspection levels and acceptance quality level and to the periodic tests with permitted number

of defectives.

To update the document to reflect modern practices it was necessary to introduce the

capability and the technology approval together with the basic design parameters of statistical

process control as a feed back system to have a continuous quality control during various

steps of manufacture.

It was also felt appropriate to split the current documentation into two separate structures of

documents which, in the day-to-day use of specifications, satisfy most users, see illustration

in Figure 2.

This offers the user the option to acquire products with and without certification. It is obvious

that the industry needs to get separate information on dimensions, performance requirements

and basic design parameters.
The two separate documents are:
▪ Product requirements
▪ Quality assessment requirements

The Product Specification contains characteristics, dimensions, performance requirements

and test schedules. The relevant document is:
IEC 61076-1 (Ed. 2)
Connectors for electronic equipment – Product requirements –
Part 1: Generic Specification.

The Quality Assessment Specification contains the requirements to obtain Qualification

Approval (QA) for a given performance level (per environment category), Capability Approval

(CA) per family of connectors or Technology Approval (TA) comprising all relevant

technologies for connector production.

Capability Approval or Technology Approval combined with statistical process control

parameters are intending to replace lot-by-lot and periodic tests. The relevant document is:

IEC 62197-1
Connectors for electronic equipment – Quality assessment requirements –
Part 1: Generic Specification

To specify a fully certified product, a combination of specifications from both structures shall

be required.

The 4 level document structure adopted by SC48B consists of a Generic, a Sectional, a Blank

Detail and Detail Specifications.
---------------------- Page: 13 ----------------------
61076-1  IEC:2006 – 17 –

To maintain this 4 level structure, two Generic Specifications are being circulated, one

document for the product aspects and a second one for the quality aspects.

The Sectional Specifications will be presented at the product level per family of connectors

e.g. printed board connectors, circular connectors, rectangular connectors, etc.

At the quality assessment level Annex B of IEC 62197-1 is dealing with Qualification Approval

B.2, Capability Approval B.3 and Technology Approval B.4.

It shall be used in conjunction with IEC Guide 109 that advocates the need to minimise the

impact of a product on the natural environment throughout the product life cycle.

It is understood that some materials permitted by this specification and in manufacturing and

assembly processes may have a negative environmental impact. As technological advantages

lead to acceptable alternatives for these materials, they shall be eliminated from this

specification. Inappropriate manufacturing processes should be replaced by a product design

that features easy maintainability and disassembly.

In the event of conflict between this part of IEC 61076 and the sectional product specification,

the requirements of the sectional product specification prevail.
1.2.1 Sectional product specifications

All details appropriate to a particular subfamily of connectors are contained in the relevant

sectional product specification, for example printed board, circular, rectangular connectors

and other connecting devices.

It shall contain a choice of all test methods and sequences, severities and preferred values

for dimensions and characteristics, which could be applicable to that subfamily.
The contents shall be derived from IEC 61076-1.

In the event of conflict between a Sectional Product Specification and the Detail Product

Specification, the requirements of the Detail Product Specification shall prevail.
