This Standard has been cancelled and replaced by ECSS-Q-ST-70-26C (31 July 2008).
The methods used for preparing and assembling the parts to be joined by crimping, and the selection, calibration, use and verification of the crimping tools are part of this Standard. Only tested and qualified crimp interconnections are covered by this Standard. In view of the large variety of crimp technologies, the different forms of crimps have been listed (not exhaustively) in subclause 5.1. Training and certification requirements for operators and inspectors are defined in subclause 8.7 and in ECSS-Q-20.
