Title Fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive components - Basic test and measurement procedures - Part 3-3: Examinations and measurements - Active monitoring of changes in attenuation and return loss
Project Number 21541
Abstract/Scope IEC 61300-3-3:2009(E) describes the procedure to monitor changes in attenuation and/or return loss of a component or an interconnecting device, when subjected to an environmental or mechanical test. The procedure may be applied to measurements on single samples or to simultaneous measurements on multiple samples, both at single wavelengths and multiple wavelengths, by using branching devices and/or switches as appropriate. This edition constitutes a minor revision. The change with respect to the previous edition is the structure of the document.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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