Reference EN 61169-38:2009
Title Radio-frequency connectors - Part 38: Sectional specification - Radio frequency coaxial connectors model, slide-in (rack and panel applications) - Characteristic impedance 50 Ω (type TMA) - 50 Ω applications
Project Number 21449
Abstract/Scope IEC 61169-38:2008(E) which is a sectional specification, provides information and rules for the preparation of detail specifications for series TMA r.f. connectors together with the pro forma blank detail specification. Series TMA connectors have a characteristic impedance of 50 Ω and are normally used with R.F cables or with microstrip in microwave fields that has a blind-entry and middle low-power. The connectors are usable up to a frequency of at least 6 GHz.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
