Title Fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive components - Basic test and measurement procedures - Part 3-7: Examinations and measurements - Wavelength dependence of attenuation and return loss of single mode components
Project Number 22343
Abstract/Scope IEC 61300-3-7:2009(E) describes the various methods available to measure the wavelength dependence of attenuation and return loss, of single-mode passive optical components (POC) used in fibre-optic (FO) telecommunications. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2000. Changes from the previous edition of this standard are to reflect changes made to IEC 61300-1 and covers unidirectional and bi-directional methods of measurement.

Superseded by  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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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