Siemon Labs Research & Development Manager Receives IEC Leadership Appointment

Daniel J. Mullin, Manager of Siemon Labs, has been appointed to a 4-year term as Technical Advisor (TA) to IEC Technical Committee 48 (IEC TC48). In his new role, Dan is 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 (In 2002 Dan was appointed as Technical Advisor for IEC/SC48B as the U.S. National Committee's representative), 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).

Dan's appointment recognizes the significant contribution that he has made to the IEC technical committee. According to John Siemon, Siemon's Chief Technology Officer, "Siemon is committed to the integrity of the standards development process and has been actively contributing to the content of both national and international telecommunications standards for over 15 years. Dan's leadership and project management skills will go far in ensuring that the IEC will continue it's tradition of developing state-of-the-art connecting hardware interface designs, requirements, and test methods in the years to come."
