Title Fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive components - Basic test and measurement procedures - Part 2-51: Tests - Fibre optic connector test for transmission with applied tensile load - Singlemode and multimode
Project Number 16929
Abstract/Scope This part of IEC 61300 describes a test to quantitatively assess the capability of fibre optic connector terminated fibre assemblies to withstand static tensile loads without uncoupling of the connector, physical damage to the assembly or degradation of optical performance. This test is intended to apply to fibre assemblies using any of the following: Media type 1: reinforced jacketed cordage of any diameter, Media type 2: cable with 900 m buffer coating that may or may not be reinforced or Media type 3: connectors terminating fibre with 250 m coating.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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