IEC 63138-2:2020, which is a sectional specification (SS), provides information and rules for the preparation of detail specifications (DS) for MQ4 series circular connectors with four RF channels, as well as a detailed specification of the blank format. An MQ4 series circular connector with 50 Ω nominal impedance has four RF channels which can be engaged and disengaged at the same time. There are two versions of plug connectors, one is a quick-lock version, and the other is a threaded version. The socket connector provides two coupling mechanisms, a quick-lock and a threaded coupling.
This document also specifies the mating face dimensions and gauging information of MQ4 series circular connectors, and tests selected from IEC 63138-1, applicable to all detail specifications relating to MQ4 series circular connectors.
