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 61169-17 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.

connectors.

This document indicates recommended performance characteristics to be considered when

writing a detail specification and it covers test schedules and inspection requirements for

assessment levels M and H.

The test procedure is as follows:
a) Sizing test

The gauge A shall be inserted into the socket-centre contact three times. This is a sizing

operation and should only be carried out when the socket-centre contact is removed from

the connector.
b) Insertion test

After the sizing test, the standard gauge B should be inserted into the socket-centre contact.

The insertion depth should not be less than 3,17 mm and the insertion force should not be

more than 8,9 N.
c) Retention test

After the sizing test, the gauge C shall be inserted into socket-centre contact. The contact

shall retain the mass of the gauge B in a vertical downward position.
4.2.2 Gauge for outer contact of connector with pin centre contact

The gauge for outer contact of a connector with pin centre contact is shown in Figure 4 and its

The test procedure is as follows:
a) Sizing test

The outer contact shall be inserted into the gauge D once. This is a sizing operation.

b) Retention test

After the sizing test, the outer contact shall be inserted into the gauge E. The outer contact

shall retain the gauge in a vertical downward direction.
This test may also be carried out on the connector with the insulator unremoved.
