Title Fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive components - Fibre optic WDM devices - Part 1: Generic specification
Project Number 24277
Abstract/Scope IEC 62074-1:2014(E) applies to fibre optic wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) devices. These have all of the following general features: - they are passive, in that they contain no optoelectronic or other transducing elements; - however they may use temperature control only to stabilize the device characteristics; - they exclude any optical switching functions; - they have three or more ports for the entry and/or exit of optical power, and share optical power among these ports in a predetermined fashion depending on the wavelength; - the ports are optical fibres, or optical fibre connectors. This standard establishes uniform requirements for the following: optical, mechanical and environmental properties. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition, published in 2009, and constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: - substantial updating to the definitions; - the addition of informative Annexes C to G, giving examples of technical information concerning WDM devices. Keywords: fibre optic wavelength division multiplexing, WDM, requirements for optical, mechanical and environmental properties

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
