IEC 63137-1:2019 defines general requirements for standard test radio frequency (RF) connectors (grade 0), including terms and definitions, ratings and characteristics, general requirements, test methods, quality assessment procedures, and etc.
Standard test radio frequency (RF) connectors (grade 0) are intended to measure grade 1 and grade 2 RF connectors for electrical performances. Typically, a standard test radio frequency (RF) connector (grade 0) is an adapter with one end (normally a precision connector interface) which can be connected with measurement equipment and the other end (normally a standard test connector interface) which can be connected with grade 1 or grade 2 connectors.
This specification applies to grade 0 standard test connectors (called connector, hereinafter).
