Radio-frequency connectors - Part 1: Generic specification - General requirements and measuring methods

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.

Connecteurs pour fréquences radioélectriques - Partie 1: Spécification générique - Exigences générales et méthodes de mesure

L'IEC 61169-1:2013 est une spécification générique, qui s'applique aux connecteurs pour fréquences radioélectriques de lignes de transmission pour fréquences radioélectriques destinés à être utilisés dans des équipements de télécommunications, électroniques et similaires. Elle fournit la base de spécifications intermédiaires qui s'appliquent à des types de connecteurs distincts. Elle a pour objet de fixer des concepts et des procédures uniformes concernant: - la terminologie; - les valeurs assignées et les caractéristiques; - les procédures d'essai et de mesure concernant les propriétés électriques, mécaniques et climatiques; - la classification des connecteurs d'après les procédures d'essais climatiques relatives à la température et à l'humidité. Les méthodes et les procédures d'essai de la présente norme sont d'abord prévues pour des essais d'approbation de type. Cette deuxième édition annule et remplace la première édition parue en 1992, ainsi que ses amendements 1 (1996) et 2 (1997). Cette édition constitue une révision technique. Par rapport à l'édition antérieure, les méthodes d'essai ainsi que la terminologie ont été mises à jour. Le contenu du corrigendum publié en Février 2016 est inclus.

Radiofrekvenčni konektorji - 1. del: Rodovna specifikacija - Splošne zahteve in merilne metode

Ta del standarda IEC 61169, ki je rodovna specifikacija, se nanaša na radiofrekvenčne konektorje za radiofrekvenčne prenosne vode, ki se uporabljajo v telekomunikacijski, elektronski in podobni opremi. Zagotavlja podlago za področne standarde, ki se uporabljajo za posamezne tipe konektorjev. Namenjen je določitvi enotnih konceptov in postopkov v zvezi s: – terminologijo; – standardnimi vrednostmi in značilnostmi; – preskusnimi in merilnimi postopki v zvezi z električnimi, mehanskimi in podnebnimi lastnostmi; – klasifikacijo konektorjev glede na podnebne preskusne postopke, ki vključujejo temperaturo in vlažnost. Preskusne metode in postopki iz tega standarda so namenjeni preskušanju sprejemljivosti ter homologacijskemu preskušanju.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 61169-1 has been prepared by subcommittee 46F: R.F. and

microwave passive components, of IEC technical committee 46: Cables, wires, waveguides,

R.F. connectors, R.F. and microwave passive components and accessories.

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.

The text of this standard is based on the following documents:

This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

A list of all the parts in the IEC 61169 series, published under the general title Radio

frequency connectors, can be found on the IEC website.

The committee has decided that the contents of this publication will remain unchanged until

the stability date indicated on the IEC web site under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data

related to the specific publication. At this date, the publication will be
• reconfirmed,
• withdrawn,
• replaced by a revised edition, or
• amended.
A bilingual version of this publication may be issued at a later date.

Part 1: Generic specification –
General requirements and measuring methods
1 Scope

This part of IEC 61169, 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.

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.
2 Normative references
