Test samplessocket of rated current is ≤ 16A and the voltage is ≤ 250V


Standard clause :

Socket-outlets shall withstand the laterin imposed by equipment likely to be introduced into them .

For socket-outlets having ratings up to and including 16A and 250V,compliance is checked by means of device shown in figure 13.

Each specimen is mounted on a vertical surface with the plane through the socket-contacts horizontal .The device is then fully engaged and a weight hung on it such that the force exerted is 5N.

The device is removed after I min and the socket-outlet is turned through 90,on the mounting surface ,The test is made four times ,the socket-outlet being turned through 90 after each engagement .

During the test the device shall bnot become disengaged from the socket-outlet.

After the test , the socket-outlet shall show no damage within the meaning of this standard ,in particular ,they shall comply with the requirements of clause 22.
