Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers requirements for devices used to determine the release moments of ski equipment in retail sales and rental facilities; it is applicable to the manufacture, repair, and calibration of such devices. Classification: Type I-a device capable of indicating both positive and negative release moments (Mz); Type IA-a device type I with specified limits of linear displacement or angular deflection; Type IB-a type I device limited in use to a specified binding or group of bindings; Type II-a device capable of indicating both positive and negative release moments (My); Type IIA-a type II device with specified limits of linear displacement or angular deflection; Type IIB-a type II device limited in use to a specified binding or group of bindings; and Type III-a device other than type I or type II with specified capability. The test device shall be of a design such that when tested will meet the requirements prescribed. If the device is designed to indicate force, and a distance measurement is required to calculate the moment, the magnitude of the smallest increment of the distance measurement shall not be greater than 5 % of the shortest measurement anticipated.
