This Final Draft International Standard is an up to 6 weeks' pre-release of the official publication. It is available for sale during its voting period: 2019-10-25 to 2019-12-06. By purchasing this FDIS now, you will automatically receive, in addition, the final publication.

IEC 61169-61:2019, which is a sectional specification (SS), provides information and rules for the preparation of detail specifications (DS) for coaxial connectors with a 9,5 mm inner diameter of the outer conductor and quick lock coupling mechanism, characteristic impedance 50 Ω and an operating frequency of up to 8,5 GHz. Series Q4.1-9.5 connectors with socket centre contact are compatible with threaded 4,1-9,5 series (specified in IEC 60169-11) connectors with pin centre contact. This type of connectors are starting to be applied in telecommunication systems due to their special features which are suitable for outdoor harsh requirements, such as quick and reliable coupling, compatible with threaded connector and being entirely waterproof.

This document specifies mating face dimensions for general purpose connectors – grade 2, dimensional details of standard test connectors – grade 0, gauge information and test requirements, product ratings and characteristics, tests selected from IEC 61169-1, applicable to all detail specifications relating to Q4.1-9.5 series RF coaxial connectors.

This document indicates the recommended performance characteristics to be considered when writing a detail specification and covers test schedules and inspection requirements for assessment levels M and H.
