Radio-frequency connectors - Part 61: Sectional specification for RF coaxial connectors with 9,5 mm inner diameter of outer conductor, quick lock coupling, series Q4.1-9.5 (IEC 61169-61:2020)

This part of IEC 61169, 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.
Annex A specifies the outline dimensions of connectors and protective sleeves, which could
bring interchangeability between pairs of connectors and protective sleeves from different
manufacturers.
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.
NOTE Metric dimensions are original dimensions. All undimensioned pictorial configurations are for reference
purposes only.

l’IEC 61169-61:2020, qui est une spécification intermédiaire (SS, en anglais Sectional Specification), fournit des informations et des règles pour l’établissement de spécifications particulières (DS, en anglais Detail Specification) pour les connecteurs coaxiaux avec un diamètre intérieur du conducteur extérieur de 9,5 mm et un mécanisme de verrouillage rapide, une impédance caractéristique de 50 Ω, et une fréquence de fonctionnement allant jusqu’à 8,5 GHz. Les connecteurs de série Q4.1-9.5 disposant d’un contact central en embase sont compatibles avec les connecteurs filetés de série 4.1-9.5 (spécifié dans l’IEC 60169-11) disposant d’un contact central en broche. Ces types de connecteurs commencent à être utilisés dans des systèmes de télécommunication car leurs fonctionnalités spéciales, telles qu’un couplage rapide et fiable, une compatibilité avec les connecteurs filetés et une étanchéité totale, conviennent aux exigences rigoureuses d’une utilisation en extérieur. Ce document spécifie les dimensions de la face d’accouplement pour les connecteurs à usage général (grade 2), les détails dimensionnels des connecteurs d’essai normalisé (grade 0), les informations du calibre et les exigences d’essai, les valeurs assignées et les caractéristiques du produit, les essais choisis à partir de l’IEC 61169-1, applicables à toutes les spécifications particulières relatives aux connecteurs coaxiaux pour fréquences radioélectriques de série Q4.1-9.5. Ce document indique les caractéristiques de performance recommandées à considérer lors de l’écriture d’une spécification particulière et il couvre les programmes d’essai et les exigences de contrôle pour les niveaux d’assurance M et H.

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 61169-61 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 part of IEC 61169, 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.

Annex A specifies the outline dimensions of connectors and protective sleeves, which could

bring interchangeability between pairs of connectors and protective sleeves from different

manufacturers.

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.
