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.

International Standard IEC 61169-24 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.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2009. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition: all drawings have been reworked and improved to allow frequency extension up to

3 GHz.

1 Scope

This part of IEC 61169, which is a sectional specification (SS), provides information and rules

for the preparation of detail specifications (DS) for RF coaxial connectors with screw coupling,

typically for use in 75 Ω cable networks (type F).

It describes the interface dimensions with gauging information and the mandatory tests

selected from IEC 61169-1, applicable to all DS relating to type F connectors.

This specification indicates the recommended performance characteristics to be considered

when writing a DS and covers test schedules and inspection requirements.

only.

4.2 Mechanical gauges
4.2.1 Mating socket centre conductor acceptance diameter test

In order to verify that the centre female contact of the socket does not suffer from mechanical

deformation when mated with the full range of indicated inner conductor diameters, a test has

been devised. This test measures the force required to insert and withdraw a selection of

precision test pins into and out of the “F” female socket under test.
The test apparatus should be so
designed as to enable accurate
alignment of the “F” female socket
under test with the precision test pin.
The apparatus should hold either the
socket or the test pin in a fixed position,
and the moving part of the apparatus
should be fitted with an instrument
capable of measuring the insertion and
withdrawal force.
Using the test sequence shown below,
the insertion and withdrawal force shall
be measured and recorded in newtons.
Figure 3 shows a gauge for the centre
socket conductor.

The insertion force required to insert the test pin into the socket centre female contact shall

not exceed 20 N under all circumstances.

The withdrawal force required to withdraw the test pin from the socket centre female contact

shall be a minimum of 0,3 N under all circumstances.

4.2.2 Mating port centre conductor acceptance electrical test

After completion of the mechanical tests described in 4.2.1, the centre conductor contact

resistance, when re-mated with a male “F” plug whose centre conductor diameter is 0,635 mm,

shall not exceed 10 mΩ with an applied test ampere rate of 1 A.
4.2.3 Reference plane electrical contact

The electrical contact shall be made by the mating of the reference plane face of the “F”

female socket with the mating face of the “F” male plug and not by the threads alone.

5 Quality assessment procedures
5.1 General

The following subclauses provide recommended ratings, performance and test conditions to

be considered when writing a detail specification (DS). They also provide an appropriate

schedule of tests with minimum levels of conformance inspection.
5.2 Ratings and characteristics

The RF connectors defined in this document are designed for use with a variety of flexible and

semi-rigid coaxial cables and in microwave integrated circuits and similar uncabled

applications.
Rating and characteristics are given in Table 4.

5.3 Environmental characteristics for outdoor sockets (see Annex A)

When the “F” type male plug and the “F” type female socket are mated, the physical attributes

shall be protected and sealed to prevent moisture ingress and as a minimum shall meet IPX8

rating.

Any “F” type (outdoor) male plug or female socket shall be resistant to corrosion and shall

meet EN 60068-2-52 salt mist cyclic test.
