Title Fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive components - Basic test and measurement procedures - Part 3-39: Examinations and measurements - Physical contact (PC) optical connector reference plug selection for return loss measurements
Project Number 22996
Abstract/Scope IEC 61300-3-39:2011 selects non-angled physical contact (PC) optical connector plugs for use as the reference plug in the return loss RL measurement and to define an acceptance return loss value RLa for use in plug acceptance testing. This procedure is for use to guarantee a certain return loss value RL when two plugs have been successfully tested against the reference connector when randomly mated. This second edition of IEC 61300-3-39 cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1997 and constitutes a technical revision. Changes from the previous edition are structure of the standard, general description and the Annex.

Normative reference (6) EN 61300-3-6

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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