Significance and Use
Results obtained by this test method can be used to determine the suitability of specific test device designs in measuring the release moments of ski/boot/binding systems.
This test method provides a means by which manufacturers of test devices and manufacturers of releasable ski bindings can provide compatible instructions to facilities which perform the final inspection of the complete boot/binding/ski system prior to use.
This test method is not appropriate for determining precision between operators.
1.1 This test method defines procedures to determine agreement between a standard apparatus for measuring the release moments of ski bindings and a test device of unspecified design.
1.2 This test method also covers procedures for checking agreement between individual devices of identical but unspecified design, intended for determining the release moments of ski bindings.
1.3 Values expressed in newton meters, newtons, and centimeters are to be regarded as the standard.
1.4 Values expressed in units of torque may be converted to the appropriate force values when devices which indicate force are used.
1.5 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.
