IEC 60068-2-57:2013 provides a standard procedure for determining, by the time-history and sine-beat methods, the ability of a specimen to withstand specified severities of transient vibration. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition, published in 1999. It also replaces IEC 60068-2-59:1990, which will be withdrawn. This edition includes only minor technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- editorially combines IEC 60068-2-57 and IEC 60068-2-59;
- the title has been modified to include a sine beat method.
This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 60068-1:1988
