    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Gives bad connection test with heaters applicable to electrotechnical equipment and to its sub-assemblies and components. Simulates an overheated connection to assess the fire hazard by a simulation technique. The test is applicable to screw connections having a rated current not exceeding 63 A. Shows example of crimping tool and example of soldering device.
