Multicore and symmetrical pair/quad cables for digital communications – Part 8: Symmetrical pair/quad cables with transmission characteristics up to 1 200 MHz – Work area wiring – Sectional specification
|Publication Date:||1 May 2013|
|ICS Code (Wires and symmetrical cables):||33.120.20|
This sectional specification relates to IEC 61156-1 and IEC 61156-7. The cables described herein are specified up to 1 200 MHz and are specifically designed to build patch, equipment, and work area cables as defined in ISO/IEC 11801 and ISO/IEC 15018.
It covers a cable having four individually screened (STP) pairs. The cable may be provided with a common screen over the cable core. The transmission characteristics are specified for a frequency range 4 MHz to 1 200 MHz and at 20 °C.
These cables can be used for various communication channels which use as many as four pairs simultaneously. In this sense, this sectional specification provides the cable characteristics required by system developers to evaluate new systems.
The cables covered by this sectional specification are intended to operate with voltages and currents normally encountered in communication systems. These cables are not intended to be used in conjunction with low impedance sources, for example the electric power supplies of public utility mains.
