IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission)

The IEC is an organization which prepares and publishes International Standards for all electrical, electronic and related technologies.

The IEC supports safety and performance, the environment, electrical energy efficiency and renewable energies. The IEC also manages conformity assessment systems that certify that equipment, systems or components conform to its International Standards. Xmultiple RJ connectors and RJ male plugs conform to the IECEx BAS 07.0085X standard and to other IEC standards related to RJ connectors. The IEC Standard 60603-7 for 100 MHz is a standard for RJ connector specifications including normal force, gold plating, and other parameters which applies to the Xmultiple magnetic connector lines. Xmultiple is compliant to the IEC Standard 60603-7. Xmultiple connectors are compliant to most of the IEC standards parameters related to many different IEC connector categories. The IEC standards encompass Fiber Optic, RJ, RF, USB, HDMI, Sub-D, board-to-board, and many custom connectors in the interconnect solutions marketplace. http://www.iec.ch

ISO (International Organization for Standardization)

The ISO has developed over 17500 International Standards on a variety of subjects and some 1100 new ISO standards are published every year. The full range of technical fields can be seen from the listing of ISO International Standards located on their website. Users can browse the ISO website listing to find bibliographic information on each standard and, in many cases, a brief abstract. The online ISO Standards listing integrates both the ISO catalogue of published standards and the ISO Technical programme of standards under development. Xmultiple confirms to ISO standards for RJ connectors as well as all our product lines. Please visit the ISO website for information on all standards. http://www.iso.org

The ISO/IEC Information Centre is jointly operated by ISO, the International Organization for Standardization, and IEC, the International Electrotechnical Commission. Its objective is to provide users of the ISO and IEC websites with information about standardization, standards and related matters.
