Title Fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive components - Basic tests and measurement procedures - Part 3-2: Examinations and measurements - Polarization dependence of attenuation in a single-mode fibre optic device
Project Number 12018
Abstract/Scope Determines the dependence of attenuation in single-mode fibre optic devices to changes in polarization. This procedure can be applied to any branching devices, attenuators, isolators and switches.Determines the dependence of attenuation in single-mode fibre optic devices to changes in polarization. This procedure can be applied to any single-mode interconnecting device and passive component, including connectors, splices, branching devices, attenuators, isolators and switches.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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