Plugs and receptacles shall be so designed and constructed that，in normal use,theirperformance is reliable,and safety is achieved by reducing risk to a tolerable level in airfieldenvironment.
Compliance is checked by meeting all the relevant requirements and tests specified in thisdocument.
5 General remarks on tests
5.1Tests shall be carried out to check compliance with the relevant requirements of thisdocument.
Tests are as follows:
– type tests shall be made on representative specimens of each type of connecting device;- production tests shall be made according to Annex A.
Conditions of 5.2 to 5.5 are applicable to type tests.
5.2 Tests shall be carried out at 23 C ± 3 C unless otherwise defined.
5.3 Test shall be performed on six pairs (plugs and receptacles) of samples of each style todemonstrate compliance with the requirements in this document.
All tested connecting devices shall pass all the relevant tests of this document. Failure of anyone of the connecting devices in any one of the tests shall indicate failure of this product tocomply with this specification unless otherwise noted in a particular test.
5.4 Assembled connecting devices of class A, shall be subjected to all the relevant tests ofthis document.
5.5 Class B connecting devices shall be assembled in accordance with the manufacturer’sinstructions to lengths of wire or cable，as appropriate，of at least 0,6 m for all the relevanttests of this document.
Rated values for receptacles and plugs are according to lEC 61820-1 voltage classes.
NOTE For connecting devices different rating voltages are used.E.g. 600 v or 750V between phases and1 5o0 v between ground and phase.
Connecting devices are classified as shown in Table 1.
