IEC 60966-3:2023 is a sectional specification that relates to semi-flexible coaxial cable assemblies operating in the transverse electromagnetic mode (TEM). It specifies the design and construction, IEC type designation, workmanship, marking and packaging, standard rating and characteristics, electrical, mechanical and environmental requirements of finished semi-flexible cable assemblies, quality assessment, delivery and storage, etc.
This part of IEC 60966 applies to semi-flexible cable assemblies composed of semi-flexible coaxial cables and coaxial connectors. Semi-flexible cable assemblies are widely used in mobile communication systems, microwave test equipment, radar, aerospace and other fields.
NOTE 1 For the purpose of this sectional specification, a cable assembly is always regarded as an integral unit. All specifications apply to the finished assembly and not to individual and non-assembled parts thereof.
NOTE 2 This sectional specification can be supplemented with detail specifications giving additional details as required by the particular application. This application will not necessarily require all tests.
