Standard Test Method for Determining Current Carrying Capacity of a Membrane Switch Circuit
|Standards number:||ASTM F1681-14|
|Keywords:||circuit resistance; current carrying capacity; membrane switch; power capacity|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the current carrying capacity of a conductor as part of a membrane switch.
1.2 This test method may be used to test a circuit to destruction, that is, to determine its maximum current carrying capacity, or it may be used to test the ability of a circuit to withstand a desired current level.
1.3 This test method applies only to static conditions, and does not apply to contact closure cycling of a membrane switch under current load (test method forthcoming).
1.4 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.
