    Hello

    I'm looking help to understand the information given in this link https://webstore.iec.ch/publication/29013 I don't understand what the information given in this page. I'm guessing IEC has some standards for electrical connectors. Specification of the manufacturing connector in a factory should be meet with IEC standards.

    I don't know what are the test method and requirement. Can somebody help me to understand what is the information in the given link?

    Thank you

    The bulletin states the standards required for means of compression for the mechanical connectors, (Lugs etc), I assume it indicates the required force exerted by the particular tooling involved in the process.

    If I'm not wrong, I think below image shows the example of power cable and mechanical connectors.

    How the power cable and mechanical connectors relate to IEC standards ?

    Correct, one type.
    At one time many jurisdictions allowed the sweating (solder) on of lugs such as those, now most only allow compression.
