3.1 plug
accessory having pin(s) designed to engage with the socket contact(s) of a receptacle, incorporating means for the electrical connection and insulated mechanical casting for retention of cable or wires [SOURCE: IEC 60050-442:1 998, 442-03-01 , modified – “socket-outlet” was replaced by
“receptacle”, “mechanical retention” was replaced by “insulated mechanical casting for retention” and “cords” was replaced by “wires”.]
3.2 receptacle
accessory having socket contact(s) designed to engage with the pin(s) of a plug, incorporating means for the electrical connection and insulated mechanical casting for retention of cables and wires
3.3 type test
conformity test made on one or more items representative of the production
3.4 production test
test that is carried out for samples of certain lot according to ISO 2859-1
3.5 class A connecting device
accessory that is completed by insulating material moulded around pre-assembled components that are terminated to cable(s) or wire(s) in factory
3.6 class B connecting device
accessory consisting of a pre-moulded housing and interface contacts that are meant to be assembled on the field
3.7 primary circuit
electric circuit that transfers energy from a power source to the primary winding of an AGL transformer
3.8 secondary circuit
electric circuit that transfers energy from the secondary winding of the AGL transformer to a load
3.9 screen continuity conductor
copper wire used to make a connection to the screen of a cable for the purpose of continuity or earthing
4 General requirements
Plugs and receptacles shall be so designed and constructed that, in normal use, their performance is reliable, and safety is achieved by reducing risk to a tolerable level in airfield environment.
Compliance is checked by meeting all the relevant requirements and tests specified in this document.IEC 63067 pdf download.
