Annotation: This standard establishes requirements and test methods for control heads and cable assemblies for mobile FM transceivers; it is compatible with other NIJ standards for mobile FM transceiver equipment.
Abstract: The standard addresses the control head, the control cable used to connect the control head to the transceiver, the connectors on each end of the control cable, and the power cable used to connect the transceiver to the vehicle battery. The control heads and cable assemblies for mobile FM transceivers are classified into one class. Principal terms used in the standard are defined, including control cable assembly, control head, control head assembly, and power cable assembly. Requirements for this equipment are described, and required user information is listed. In addition, test methods are delineated, including ambient conditions; test equipment; and specific tests such for factors such as vibration, temperature, humidity, conductor resistance, and insulation resistance. Six references, tables, and diagrams are appended.
