Daniel Mullin, manager of Siemon Labs, has been appointed to a four-year term as Technical Advisor (TA) to International Electrotechnical Commission’s Technical Committee 48.

In his new role, Mullin will be responsible for leading technical developmental work, drafting new and revised IEC standards, issuing standards for industry review, compiling ballot comments, and preparing documents for publication.

IEC TC48 is tasked with the standardization of telecommunications and other electric connectors, connecting devices, and mechanical structures (mechanical housings for connectors, printed circuit boards, and backbone assemblies).

SC48B, a subcommittee to TC48, currently has 15 project teams assigned to new work items addressing leading edge developments in the telecommunications connector industry.

For example, Project Team 61076-3-106 is developing the standard for 8-way shielded and unshielded connectors for frequencies up to 600 MHz for industrial environments incorporating the IEC 60603-7 series interface (RJ45).

The IEC prepares and publishes international standards for all electrical, electronic and related technologies
