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: 2021-09-10 to 2021-10-22. By purchasing this FDIS now, you will automatically receive, in addition, the final publication.

IEC 62037-3:2021 defines the impact test on coaxial connectors to evaluate their robustness against weak connections and particles inside the connector, as independently as possible from the effects of cable PIM (passive intermodulation).
For other connectors (e.g. panel mounted connectors), the cable can be replaced by an adequate transmission-line (e.g. airline, stripline). In order to evaluate the effects of mechanical stresses on the connectors, a series of impacts is applied to the connectors while measuring the PIM.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2012. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a. impact method changed to utilize a steel ball rather than a brass rod;
b. impact energy required to test each connector type added;
c. method added to calculate impact energy for connector types not listed in the document.
