|Fixing Reference Plane to Fixing Reference Plane|
|Taken from the panel fixing point of panel mounting connectors, the tip of straight connectors (non panel mounting) and the centre contact of right angle connectors.|
|Cable Cut to Cable Cut|
|Taken as the cut length of the cable from tip to tip, prior to the termination of connectors.|
|Mating Reference Plane to Mating Reference Plane|
|Taken from the tip of the mating contact of straight connectors and the centre of the contact of right angle connectors.|
