IEC 61196-1-308:2012(E) applies to coaxial communication cables. It specifies test methods for tensile strength and percentage elongation at fracture for annealed and hard-drawn solid copper clad metals to be used as inner conductor for coaxial cables. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2005. It constitutes a technical revision. Changes from the previous edition of the document are the addition of test methods for annealed copper-clad conductors. This second edition makes a distinction between annealed and hard-drawn solid copper clad metals.
Requirements are more precise than in the first edition.
