Multi-channel radio frequency connectors - Part 3: Sectional specification for MQ5 series circular connectors (IEC 63138-3:2022)

This part of IEC 63138, which is a sectional specification (SS), provides information and rules for the preparation of detail specifications (DS) for MQ5 series circular connectors with five RF channels, as well as a detailed specification of the blank format.
An MQ5 series circular connector with 50 Ω nominal impedance has five RF channels that can be engaged and disengaged at the same time. There are two versions of plug connectors, one is a quick-lock version, and the other is a threaded version. The socket connector provides two coupling mechanisms, a quick-lock and a threaded coupling.
MQ5 series circular connectors can be used in mobile communication systems and in other communication equipment.
This document also specifies the mating face dimensions and gauging information of MQ5 series circular connectors, and tests selected from IEC 63138-1, applicable to all detail specifications relating to MQ5 series circular connectors.

MULTI-CHANNEL RADIO FREQUENCY CONNECTORS –
Part 3: Sectional specification for MQ5 series circular connectors
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.

IEC 63138-3 has been prepared by subcommittee 46F: RF and microwave passive components,

of IEC technical committee 46: Cables, wires, waveguides, RF connectors, RF and microwave

passive components and accessories. It is an International Standard.
The text of this International Standard is based on the following documents:

MULTI-CHANNEL RADIO FREQUENCY CONNECTORS –
Part 3: Sectional specification for MQ5 series circular connectors
1 Scope

This part of IEC 63138, which is a sectional specification (SS), provides information and rules

for the preparation of detail specifications (DS) for MQ5 series circular connectors with five RF

channels, as well as a detailed specification of the blank format.

An MQ5 series circular connector with 50 Ω nominal impedance has five RF channels that can

be engaged and disengaged at the same time. There are two versions of plug connectors, one

is a quick-lock version, and the other is a threaded version. The socket connector provides two

coupling mechanisms, a quick-lock and a threaded coupling.

MQ5 series circular connectors can be used in mobile communication systems and in other

communication equipment.

This document also specifies the mating face dimensions and gauging information of MQ5

series circular connectors, and tests selected from IEC 63138-1, applicable to all detail

specifications relating to MQ5 series circular connectors.

After the sizing operation, if specified in the detail specification, the force necessary to fully

insert the gauge B into the outer contact shall be measured and it shall not exceed 15 N.

c) Retention test

After the sizing or insertion operation, the gauge C shall be inserted into the outer contact.

The contact shall retain the mass of the gauge C in a vertical downward position.

5 Quality assessment procedure
5.1 General

Subclause 5.2 to Subclause 5.3.4 provide the recommended rating, performance and test

conditions to be considered when preparing a detail specification. They also specify the test

schedules and procedures appropriate to the corresponding quality inspection level.

5.2 Rating and characteristics

The values indicated below are recommended for MQ5 series circular connector, and are given

for the writer of the detail specification. They are applicable for the condition when the

connectors are fully mated. The preferable characteristics can be seen in Table 9.

Certain tests are listed without any recommended values being given when they are not require
