IEC 60286-5:2018 RLV contains the International Standard and its Redline version. The Redline version is available in English only. The Redline version provides you with a quick and easy way to compare all the changes between this standard and its previous edition. The Redline version is not an official IEC Standard, only the current version of the standard is to be considered the official document.
IEC 60286-5:2018 describes the common dimensions, tolerances and characteristics of the tray. It includes only those dimensions that are essential for the handling of the trays for the stated purpose and for placing or removing components from the trays. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- The generic rules for the design of matrix trays are given in this document. Newly developed trays which follow these rules will not be listed individually. Only those trays which conform to the design rules set forth herein are classified as "standard trays" and are thus preferred for use.
- An update of the matrix trays, which do not conform to the design rules set forth herein, are considered as "non-standard trays" and are not preferred for use, is listed in Annex A.
