Foreword
IS0 (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (IS0 member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through IS0 technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. IS0 collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization. Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for approval before their acceptance as International Standards by the IS0 Council. They are approved in accordance with IS0 procedures requiring at least 75 % approval by the member bodies voting. International Standard IS0 5295-l was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 41, Pulleys and belts (including veebelts). The first edition of IS0 5296-l cancels and replaces the first edition of IS0 5296 : 1978, as well as its Addenda 1 and 2 of 1982, of which it constitutes a technical revision. IS0 5296 consists of the following drives - Belts: parts, under the general title Synchronous be/t

Belt designation
One-sided belts

The length designation for belts in non-standardized lengths that are not contained in tables 3a) and 3b) shall be established from the pitch length in millimetres divided by 254. This number shall be rounded: a) for belts with pitch code MXL to the first decimal: for example belt MXL with 102 teeth corresponding to pitch length 207,26 mm: length designation 81.6; b) for belts with pitch codes XL to XXH to the nearest integral number, where 0,5 will be rounded down, for example belt L with 130 teeth corresponding to pitch length 1 23825 mm: length designation 487.

The belt designation includes, in order, the length designation according to tables 3a) and 3b). the pitch code according to table 1 and the width designation according to table 4a). EXAMPLES A synchronous belt of pitch length 7,2 in (18288 mm), pitch 0,080 in (2,032 mm1 and nominal width 0,19 in (4.8 mm) is designated :

Measuring

The pitch length of a synchronous belt shall be determined by placing the belt on a measuring fixture composed of the following elements.

A synchronous belt of pitch length 98 in (2 489.2 mm), pitch 0,875 in (22,225 mm) and nominal width 2 in (50,8 mm) is designated : 980 XH 200 4.2

Symmetrical

of the proper pitch code, and having standard tooth space dimensions. These pulleys shall be made to the tolerances shown in table 5 and have the proper clearance, C,, between the pulley tooth space and the theoretical belt tooth width as specified in table 5 (see figure 2). One pulley shall be free to rotate on a fixed-position shaft, while the other shall be free to rotate on a movable shaft to permit the centre distance to change.

The belt designation for type A belts corresponding to figure lb) includes, in order, the letter D, for double-sided, the type designation, the length designation, the pitch code, and the width designation. EXAMPLE A type A synchronous belt of pitch length 42 in (1 066,8 mm), pitch 0,375 in (9,525 mm) and nominal width 0,5 in (12.7 mm) is designated : DA 420 L 050 4.2.2 Type B - Staggered

The belt designation for type B belts corresponding to figure Ic) is similar to 4.2.1 except that a B replaces the A.

The total measuring force to be applied for measuring belts is given in table 6.

5.3

Procedure

In measuring the pitch length of a synchronous belt, the belt shall be rotated at least two revolutions to seat it properly and to divide the total force equally between the two strands of the belt.

The pitch length shall be calculated by adding the pitch circumference of one of the pulleys to twice the measured centre distance. Check double-sided belts on both tooth faces.
