Title Radio-frequency connectors - Part 1: Generic specification - General requirements and measuring methods
Project Number 23597
Abstract/Scope IEC 61169-1:2013(E), which is a generic specification, relates to radio frequency connectors for r.f. transmission lines for use in telecommunications, electronics and similar equipment. It provides the basis for the sectional standards, which apply to individual connector types. It is intended to establish uniform concepts and procedures concerning: - terminology; - standard ratings and characteristics; - testing and measuring procedures concerning electrical, mechanical and climatic properties; - classification of connectors with regard to climatic testing procedures involving temperature and humidity. The test methods and procedures of this standard are intended for acceptance and type approval testing. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition, published in 1992, its Amendments 1 (1996) and 2 (1997). This edition constitutes a technical revision. With respect to the previous edition, tests methods have been updated as well as terminology.
