This includes also the transmission of BCT signals provided by a CATV, MATV or SMATV cable networks.
This document specifies the test procedures and requirements for trunk and distribution cables for temperatures between −40 °C and +65 °C and in the frequency range of 5 MHz to 2 000 MHz.
This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2012. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical change with respect to the previous edition:
a) 1 Scope: revised, frequency range extended to 2 000 MHz;
b) 4.3 Dielectric: life expectancy of the dielectric is proved by oxidative induction time (OIT) test before and after ageing according to IEC 60811-410;
c) Annex A: Table A.1, Cable types added.
