Title Fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive components - Basic test and measurement procedures - Part 2-7: Tests - Bending moment
Project Number 23962
Abstract/Scope IEC 61300-2-7:2013 details a procedure for determining the suitability of a fibre optic device to withstand the environmental condition of a bending moment which may occur in actual use, storage and/or transport. The test is primarily intended to permit the observation of effects of a bending moment. The bending moment may result in effects that would destroy functional utility, cause loss of physical strength, and cause changes in other important mechanical properties. Degradation of optical properties may also occur. The specimen may be a component, a connector set, a splice or other device combination intended for fibre optic usage. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1995. It constitutes a technical revision.This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: - a complete reconsideration of the entire document, including additional normative references; - clarification of the device under test (DUT); - clarification of the relationship between severities, performance categories and the DUT. Keywords: suitability of a fibre optic device to withstand the environmental condition of a bending moment

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
