Standards?  What standards?

I quit having trouble when I started making my own cords with the 10 mm
pins. I use the kind with a wrap around solder connection to the shield
inside the cover. I also use teflon jacketed shielded coax of one size or
another. Very permanent. Very shielded. Never melts when soldering.

Bad cords and connectors are responsible for so much trouble....
