Title Fibre organisers and closures to be used in optical fibre communication systems - Product specifications - Part 6-1: Unprotected microduct for category S and A
Project Number 21470
Abstract/Scope Product definition This specification contains the initial, start of life dimensional, mechanical and environmental performance requirements which an unprotected microduct must meet. It does not address the installation capability of these products which must be agreed between the user and supplier. Operating environment The tests selected combined with the severities and duration are representative of an outside plant for subterranean and/or aerial environment defined by: — ETS 300 019 : class 8.1: underground locations (without earthquake requirement) — EN 61753-1 : category S: subterranean environment, category A: aerial environment Quality assurance Compliance with this specification does not guarantee the manufacturing consistency of the product. This should be maintained using a recognised quality assurance programme. Allowed product types This standard covers all European Standard on optical fibre unprotected microducts. This includes, but is not limited to, EN 60794-5, Optical fibre cables - Part 5: Sectional specification - Microduct cabling for installation by blowing. Allowed microduct connector types This microduct standard allows the use of all European Standard on microduct connectors, including: straight, reducer/enlarger stem, reducer/enlarger, close down, liquid block, liquid block with barb end, and end stop connectors. This includes EN 50411-2-8, Fibre organisers and closures to be used in optical fibre communication systems - Product specifications - Part 2-8: Microduct connectors, for air blown optical fibres, Type 1.

(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
