IEC 61196-1-100:2015 gives the general requirements and conditions for electrical tests to be performed on coaxial communication cables and applies to the IEC 61196-1-1xx series, which specifies electrical test methods for coaxial communication cables. Further test details (for example, temperature, duration) and/or test requirements are given in the relevant cable standard. This second edition cancels and replaces the edition published in 2005. This edition constitutes a technical revision. 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
