Collision strengths for 4005 transitions among the lowest 90 levels of the (1s22s22p6) 3s23p5, 3s3p6, 3s23p43d, 3s3p53d and 3s23p33d2 configurations of Fe X have been calculated using the Dirac Atomic R-matrix Code (DARC) of Norrington & Grant (2005, Comput. Phys. Commun., in preparation), over a wide energy range up to 210 Ryd. Resonances have been resolved in the threshold region, and effective collision strengths have been obtained over a wide temperature range up to 107 K. The present calculations should represent a significant improvement (in both range and accuracy) over the earlier available results of Bhatia & Doschek (1995, At. Data Nucl. Data Tables, 60, 97), Tayal (2001, ApJS, 132, 117) and Pelan & Berrington (2001, A&A, 365, 258). Based on several comparisons, the accuracy of our data is assessed to be better than 20%, for a majority of transitions.
