IEC 61196-1-119:2020 defines the requirements to determine the average power handling capability of a coaxial cable at specified frequencies at ambient temperatures. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition, published in 2012. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- title was changed from: RF power rating to: RF average power rating;
- a test method to determine sufficient duration is included as annex
- the equations used for calculating cable coefficients and RF average power rating are corrected;
- the clauses and subclauses are rearranged.
