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 which can preferably
be used with RF cables 60096 IEC 50-3 of IEC 60096-2. These connector patterns are for low
power, quick connect/disconnect applications using a bayonet type coupling mechanism and
are commonly known as type "BNC" with characteristic impedance 75 Ω.
It describes the interface dimensions for general purpose connectors, dimensional details for
standard test connectors together with gauging information and the mandatory tests selected
from IEC 61169-1, applicable to all DS relating to type BNC connectors with characteristic
impedance 75 Ω.
This document indicates the recommended performance characteristics to be considered
when writing a DS and covers test schedules and inspection requirements.

l’IEC 61169-63:2020, qui est une spécification intermédiaire (SS - sectional specification), fournit des informations et des règles en vue de l'établissement des spécifications particulières (DS - detail specification) relatives aux connecteurs coaxiaux pour fréquences radioélectriques pouvant être utilisés de préférence avec les câbles pour fréquences radioélectriques 60096 IEC 50-3 de l’IEC 60096‑2. Ces modèles de connecteurs sont destinés à des applications de faible puissance, avec accouplement et désaccouplement rapides, équipés d’un mécanisme de couplage à baïonnette et sont communément connus comme étant du type BNC avec une impédance caractéristique de 75 W. Elle spécifie les dimensions de l’interface pour les connecteurs à usage général, les détails dimensionnels des connecteurs d’essai normalisés, ainsi que les informations sur les calibres et les essais obligatoires choisis dans l’IEC 61169-1, applicables à toutes les DS relatives aux connecteurs de type BNC avec une impédance caractéristique de 75 W.

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 61169-63 has been prepared by subcommittee 46F: RF and

microwave passive components, of IEC technical committee 46: Cables wires, waveguides,

RF connectors, RF microwave passive components and accessories.

be used with RF cables 60096 IEC 50-3 of IEC 60096-2. These connector patterns are for low

power, quick connect/disconnect applications using a bayonet type coupling mechanism and

are commonly known as type "BNC" with characteristic impedance 75 Ω.

It describes the interface dimensions for general purpose connectors, dimensional details for

standard test connectors together with gauging information and the mandatory tests selected

from IEC 61169-1, applicable to all DS relating to type BNC connectors with characteristic

6.1.1.2 Test sequence

Gauge A shall be placed over the outer electrical contact of the connector once. This is a

sizing operation and should be carried out when the insulator is removed from the connector.

After this the gauge B shall be placed over the outer contact in a vertical position. The gauge

shall be retained.

This test can also be carried out on connectors when the insulator is not removed.

6.1.2 Connectors with socket-centre contact
6.1.2.1 Gauge pin for socket-centre contact

6.1.2.2 Test sequence

A test pin gauge C shall be inserted into the centre contact a minimum distance of 3,17 mm

(0,125 in) once. This is a sizing operation and should be carried out when the insulator is

removed from the connector.

After this the gauge D shall be inserted in the vertical position. The gauge shall be retained.

This test can also be carried out on connectors when the insulator is not removed.

6.1.3 Gauge for outer contacts, coupling mechanism and mating face dimensions

A steel standard mating part shall be constructed as shown in Figure 10 for the connector and

shall have a 0,4 µm (16 µin) maximum finish. The longitudinal force re
