Title Fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive components - Basic test and measurement procedures - Part 2-6: Tests - Tensile strength of coupling mechanism
Project Number 22719
Abstract/Scope IEC 61300-2-6:2010 describes a test to ensure that the coupling mechanism of a connector set or connector and device combination will withstand the axial loads likely to be applied during normal service. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: - Relaxing pre-conditioning hours; - Adding the recommended severity value table for connectors; - Reconsidering the details to be specified section.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
