Description / Abstract:

This standard covers the establishment of a series of dimensional systems and nomenclature to serve as a guide in the coordination of equipment design and design of machinery for automatic manufacture.

This modular dimension shall apply to all three axes of Cartesian coordinates and shall apply to the following quantities among others: spacing between holes in printed wire boards, between matrix points in wire wrap, between leads in two or multi-leaded components or electron devices, spacing of terminals. or other types of larger components, overall printed board dimensions, lengths, test point locations, inter-board connections, etc.
