Title Radio frequency and coaxial cable assemblies - Part 3: Sectional specification for semi-flexible coaxial cable assemblies
Project Number 21660
Abstract/Scope IEC 60966-3:2008(E) is a sectional specification that relates to semi-flexible coaxial cable assemblies operating in the transverse electromagnetic mode (TEM). It establishes uniform requirements for testing the electrical, mechanical and climatic properties of flexible cable assemblies composed of flexible coaxial cables and coaxial connectors. The major change with respect to the second edition is a better definition of the tests to be performed.
