    Abstract

    This specification covers separable single-circuit miniature thermocouple connectors with two flat pins. Connectors covered by this specification must be rated for continuous use to at least 300 °F (150 °C), but they may optionally be rated higher. This specification does not cover multiple-circuit connectors, multi-pin connectors, standard size connectors, connectors intended primarily for panel mounting, or high-temperature connectors (for example, those designed for continuous use at temperatures significantly above approximately 500 °F (260 °C)). The connectors shall be rated based on their performance during contact resistance, thermal gradient, and insulation resistance tests.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers separable single-circuit miniature thermocouple connectors with two flat pins. Connectors covered by this specification must be rated for continuous use to at least 300°F (150°C), but they may optionally be rated to a higher temperature.

    1.2 This specification does not cover multiple-circuit connectors, multi-pin connectors, standard size connectors, or connectors intended primarily for panel mounting. High-temperature connectors (for example, those designed for continuous use at temperatures significantly above approximately 500°F [260°C]) are not intended to be covered by this specification.

    1.3 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in brackets are not conversions to the values they succeed and therefore shall be used independently of the preceding values. The values given in parentheses are conversions of the values they succeed. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

    1.4 The plug and jack may be ordered separately but many of the connector characteristics (see Table 1) are qualified as a mated pair. The requirements in this standard are applicable for the connector pair supplied by the same manufacturer.

    1.5 The following precautionary statement pertains only to the Test Methods portion, Section 9, of this specification: 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 establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
