Information technology — Telecommunications and information exchange between systems — 34-pole DTE/DCE interface connector mateability dimensions and contact number assignments
This International Standard specifies the 34- pole connector and the assignment of contact numbers at the interface between data terminal equipment (DTE) and data circuit-terminating equipment (DCE) where ITU-T Recommendation V.36 or Recommendation X.21bis together with Recommendation V.10 and V.11 are applicable. NOTE 1 An interoperation between interfaces designed according to electrical characteristics specified in ITU-T Recommendation V.36 and those specified in ITU-T Recommendation V.11 is, at least to a limited degree, possible. This can be achieved, for example, by using a passive adaptor which joins the interface connectors in accordance with ISO/IEC 2593 and ISO 4902, or ISO 4903, respectively. This International Standard specifies the dimensions of the connector housing and gives recommendations for the type of locking device (jack-screw system) and connector shielding.

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) and IEC (the International Electrotechnical Commission)
form the specialized system for worldwide standardization. National bodies that are members of ISO or IEC
participate in the development of International Standards through technical committees established by the
respective organization to deal with particular fields of technical activity. ISO and IEC technical committees
collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other international organizations, governmental and non-governmental, inliaison with ISO and IEC, also take part in the work.
International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 3.
In the field of information technology, ISO and IEC have established a joint technical committee, ISO/IEC JTC 1.
Draft International Standards adopted by the joint technical committee are circulated to national bodies for voting.
Publication as an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the national bodies casting a vote.
Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this International Standard may be the subject of
patent rights. ISO and IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.
International Standard ISO/IEC 2593 was prepared by Joint Technical Committee ISO/IEC JTC 1, Information
technology, Subcommittee SC 6, Telecommunications and information exchange between systems.
This fourth edition cancels and replaces the third edition (ISO 2593:1993), of which it constitutes a minor revision.Annex A forms a normative part of this International Standard.
