ANSI Signs Off on MCX Connector Standard

The SCTE recently obtained American National Standards Institute approval of ANSI/SCTE 176 2011, Specification for 75 ohm 'MCX' Connector, Male & Female Interface.

The document specifies requirements for the male/female interface of a 75 ohm, 3 GHz rated connector series generically known as MCX. It's an indoor connector with applications in controlled-environment headends and hub sites. The document addresses only the interface, not the connector body or the cable requirements. Mechanical, electrical, and environmental performance are defined, as well as temporary adapters and calibration standards.
