Title Fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive components - Basic test and measurement procedures - Part 2-44: Tests - Flexing of the strain relief of fibre optic devices
Project Number 24317
Abstract/Scope IEC 61300-2-44:2013(E) specifies a test to determine the influence of flexing under tensile load of the strain relief of fibre optic devices. The intention is to simulate the number of flexing cycles which would typically be experienced during service life. This test is applied to both single fibre cable and multiple fibre cable. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2008 and constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: - revision of Figure 1; - change of fibre length from the flex point to the weight. Key Words: flexing under tensile load of the strain relief of fibre optic devices

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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