IEC 61196-1-200:2014 gives the general requirements and conditions for environmental tests to be performed on coaxial communication cables and applies to the IEC 61196-1-2xx series, which specifies environmental test methods for coaxial communication cables. Further test details (e.g. temperature, duration) and/or test requirements may be given in the relevant sectional or detail specification. It is based on the second edition (2005) of that standard. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) ambient conditions are specified more in detail;
b) the list of related standards of the IEC 61196 series was moved to Annex A.
This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 61196-1:2005
