Reference EN 61300-2-15:2008
Title Fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive components - Basic test and measurement procedures - Part 2-15: Tests - Torque strength of coupling mechanism
Project Number 21297
Abstract/Scope This part of IEC 61300 applies an overload torque to twist-type coupling mechanisms. It is applicable to threaded or bayonet-twist type coupling mechanisms. It can be used to ensure that the coupling mechanism of a connector set or connector-device combination will withstand the torsional loads likely to be applied during normal service. Specific technical changes from the previous edition include reexamination of the pre-conditioning and rewriting of the entire composition according to the latest IEC Directives.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
