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.

Shape of flange is optional, but should meet electrical and mechanical requirements.

Slot design optional, but the dimensions are to meet VSWR mating characteristics and connector durability

when mated with 0,50 mm to 0,53 mm diameter pin.
3.4 Requirements for installation
3.4.1 Radial misalignment

The location of the mountings of each pair of mating connectors shall be defined relative to a

common datum, such as the centre line of a dowel/dowel hole or “reference connector pair”.

The location shall be controlled to ensure that at the point of initial engagement, the radial

misalignment of the centre lines of the mating connectors from their true position does not

exceed the following limits (see Figure 7):

The float mounting allows a total of 1,52 mm axial travel. The mounting arrangements should

however ensure a minimum length of travel of 0,25 mm (0,76 mm preferred) to ensure full

length of engagement is maintained, under operational conditions as Figure 9.

4 Quality assessment procedures
4.1 General

Subclauses 4.1 to 4.4 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 sampling, together with the

pro forma blank detail specification (BDS) and instructions for the preparation of a detail

specification.
4.2 Ratings and characteristics (see Clause 5 of IEC 61169-1:2013)

The values indicated below are recommended for SBMA series RF connectors and are given

for the writer of the detail specification. They are applicable for the condition when the

connectors are fully mated.

Certain tests will usually not be required. When these tests are required, appropriate values

shall be entered in the detail specification at the discretion of the specification writer.

Rating and characteristics are given in Table 7.
