Standard test radio-frequency connectors - Part 1: Generic specification - General requirements and test methods (IEC 63137-1:2019)

IEC 63137-1 defines general requirements for standard test radio frequency (RF) connectors (grade 0), including terms and definitions, ratings and characteristics, general requirements, test methods, quality assessment procedures, and etc. Standard test radio frequency (RF) connectors (grade 0) are intended to measure grade 1 and grade 2 RF connectors for electrical performances. Typically, a standard test radio frequency (RF) connector (grade 0) is an adapter with one end (normally a precision connector interface) which can be connected with measurement equipment and the other end (normally a standard test connector interface) which can be connected with grade 1 or grade 2 connectors. This specification applies to grade 0 standard test connectors (called connector, hereinafter).

l’IEC 63137-1:2019 définit les exigences générales relatives aux connecteurs d’essai normalisés pour fréquences radioélectriques (RF) (grade 0), y compris les termes et définitions, les valeurs assignées et caractéristiques, les exigences générales, les méthodes d’essai, les procédures d’évaluation de la qualité, etc. Les connecteurs d’essai normalisés pour fréquences radioélectriques (RF) (grade 0) sont destinés à mesurer les performances électriques des connecteurs RF de grade 1 et de grade 2. Généralement, un connecteur d’essai normalisé pour fréquences radioélectriques (RF) (grade 0) consiste en un raccord dont une extrémité (normalement une interface de connecteur de précision) peut être reliée à un matériel de mesure et l’autre extrémité (normalement une interface de connecteur d’essai normalisé) peut être reliée à un connecteur de grade 1 ou de grade 2. La présente spécification s’applique aux connecteurs d’essai normalisés de grade 0 (ci-après simplement dénommés «connecteur»). Le contenu du corrigendum de janvier 2020 a été pris en considération dans cet exemplaire.

STANDARD TEST RADIO-FREQUENCY CONNECTORS –
Part 1: Generic specification – General requirements and test methods
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.

4 Design and construction
4.1 General

The connectors shall be designed and constructed to ensure these features including adequate

accuracy, uniform impedance, long mechanical durability, and good repeatability. The relevant

specification is not intended to restrict those designs and dimensions for details of construction

which do not influence interchangeability or performance, nor are they to be used as

manufacturing drawings.

All of mechanical drawings shall be made as specified in IEC 60617. The dimensions and

tolerances shall be given in metric units. During conversion of dimensions given in inches into

millimetres, they shall, in principle, be rounded to the nearest 0,000 1 mm or 0,000 05 in.

4.2 Materials and finishes

The materials and finishes used for the connectors shall be as specified in the safety,

environmental regulations and the relevant specifications. Dissimilar metals between which an

electromotive couple may exist shall not be placed in contact with each other.
4.3 Connector interface dimensions and gauge

The interface dimensions and gauge for the connectors shall be as specified in the relevant

specifications.

IEC 63137-1:2019 © IEC 2019 – 9 –
5 Standards ratings and characteristics

The ratings and characteristics applicable to each connector type and style shall be specified in

the specification. They should normally include:
a) the return loss as a function of frequency;
b) any other rating or characteristic, as applicable.
6 IEC type designation

The purpose of the IEC type designation is to identify a particular connector within the scope of

IEC RF connector standardization. It is not intended to include information in excess of this.

In practice, it is usually necessary to identify a manufacturer's product because, although

complying with the IEC standard, there may be features not covered by the standard.

The connectors complying with the relevant specification shall be designated by the following

information:
a) the number of the specification;
b) the letters "IEC";

c) the series codes of both interface ends of the connector (series code-polarity code). For

example:

1) for inter-type adapters, “2.4-F/SMP-M” denotes that one end is 2.4 series female

connector interface, and the other end is SMP series male connector interface;

2) for within-type adapters, “2.4-F/M” denotes that one end is 2.4 series female connector

interface, and the other end is 2.4 series male connector interface;
d) additional indication method as specified in the relevant specification.

NOTE When an IEC type designation is used, either for the marking of the product or in a description of the product,

it is the responsibility of the manufacturer to ensure that the item meets the requirements of the relevant specification.

7 Requirements and test methods
7.1 General
Unless otherwise specified, the following conditions shall be applied.

Measurements for mechanical and electrical performances shall be carried out under these

ambient conditions: at 20 °C to 30 °C temperature, 20% to 80% relative humidity, and

86 kPa to 106 kPa atmospheric pressure.

The connectors shall be preconditioned under the ambient conditions, as specified above, to

reach thermal stability before measurements are made.

When a nominal value only is given for an applied stress and/or the duration of application, the

specified value shall be taken to indicate the minimum test severity to be applied.

The test shall be carried out with connectors – as received from the supplier. In no case shall the

contact parts be cleaned or otherwise prepared prior to tests, unless explicitly specified in the

specification.

Nominal coupling torque value shall be specified for screw-coupled connectors in the relevant

specification.
