IEC 61240:2016, Piezoelectric Devices

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has released IEC 61240:2016, pertaining to Piezoelectric devices and preparation of outline drawings of surface-mounted devices (SMD) for frequency control and selection and is now available on the IEC webstore.

Description: “IEC 61240:2016(E) sets out general rules for drawing all dimensional and geometrical characteristics of a surface-mounted piezoelectric device package (referred to in this document as SMD) in order to ensure mechanical inter-changeability of all outline drawings of the SMDs for frequency control and selection.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
– outline drawings have been changed from three views (top, front and bottom) to that based on ISO layout in the third-angle projection, in which the view from the right has been added to the top, front and bottom views;
– reference line and geometrical dimensions of the package for enclosures have been changed for practical use;
– information on miniaturized leadless ceramic enclosures of piezoelectric devices (SMD) for frequency control and selection has been included in an annex.”
