IEC 61210 pdf – Connecting devices – Flat quick-connect terminations for electrical copper conductors – Safety requirements
This International Standard applies to non-insulated flat quick-connect terminations consistingof a male tab of size 2,8 mm, 4,8 mm, 6,3 mm or 9,5 mm with hole or dimple detents and amating female connector for use as either an incorporated or an integrated part of an
equipment or of a component, or as a separate entity.This standard establishes uniformrequirements for the dimensions, performance characteristics and test program.
The connected electrical copper conductors shall be flexible or rigid stranded, having a cross-sectional area up to and including 6 mm 2 or rigid solid having a cross-sectional area up to andincluding 2,5 mm 2.This standard shall not be used for connecting aluminum conductors.
The rated voltage shall not exceed 1 000 v a.c. with a frequency up to and including
1 000 Hz, and 1 500 v d.c., and having the temperature limits applicable to materials usedwithin this standard.
NOTE1 This standard,where applicable, may be used for conductors made of material other than copper.NOTE 2 For reasons of safety, it is recommended that flat quick-connect terminations beyond the scope of thisstandard should not be interchangeable with those of this standard.
NOTE 3 This standard does not apply to female connectors with positive locking means.
NOTE 4 The flat quick-connect terminations covered by this standard are not intended to be disconnected bypulling on the cable.
NOTE 5 Annex D provides additional information on non international units.Normative references

3Terms and definitions
For the purpose of this document the following terms and definitions apply:
flat quick-connect termination
electrical connection consisting of a male tab and a female connector which can be insertedand withdrawn with or without the use of a tool
that portion of a flat quick-connect termination which receives the female connector
male test tab
male tab manufactured with tighter tolerances for the specific purpose of conductingmechanical tests with production female connectors
that portion of a flat quick-connect termination which is pushed onto the male tab
dimple (depression) or hole in the male tab which engages a raised portion on the femaleconnector to provide a latch for the mating parts
maximum permissible temperaturemaximum service temperature
highest temperature which the flat quick-connect termination is allowed to attain in normal use
