IEC 60603-7-7:2010 covers 8-way, shielded, free and fixed connectors, references dimensional, mechanical, electrical and environmental characteristics and tests in IEC 60603-7 and IEC 60603-7-1, and specifies electrical transmission requirements for frequencies up to 600 MHz. These connectors are typically used as category 7 connectors in class F cabling systems specified in ISO/IEC 11801. These connectors are intermateable and interoperable with other IEC 60603-7 series connectors as defined in Clause 2 of IEC 60603-7-1. This third edition of IEC 60603-7-7 cancels and replaces the second edition issued in 2006, and constitutes a technical revision. The main technical changes are as follows:
- Removal of test methods that are now referenced to IEC 60512-26-100;
- addition of TCL and TCTL requirements and removal of the electrical, mechanical, dimensional, environmental conditioning tests by reference to IEC 60603-7.
