Title Radio-frequency connectors - Part 42: Sectional specification for CQN series quick lock RF coaxial connectors
Project Number 22505
Abstract/Scope IEC 61169-42:2013(E) provides information and rules for the preparation of detail specifications (DS) for CQN series RF coaxial connectors, with characteristic impedance of 50 Ohms, with threaded coupling and operating frequency limit up to 11 GHz, used in wireless, microwave, telecommunication, and other fields, connecting with RF cables or micro-strips. It also prescribes mating face dimensions for general connectors-grade 2, dimensional details of standard test connectors-grade 0, gauging information and tests selected from IEC 61169-1, applicable to all detail specifications relating to CQN series connectors. This first edition cancels and replaces the first edition of IEC/PAS 61169-42 published in 2009.
