Title Fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive components - Basic test and measurement procedures - Part 3-28: Examinations and measurements - Transient loss
Project Number 23301
Abstract/Scope IEC 61300-3-28:2012 describes methods to measure fast variation of attenuation due to mechanical stresses applied on optical fibres and passive optical components during their lifetime. This method is not designed to measure very fast transient losses (with duration less than 1 ms) that could affect the performance of transmission systems. It is optimised to detect transient losses caused by mechanical stresses due to the tests prescribed in the component performance standards, whose duration is generally longer than several tens of milliseconds. Changes from the previous edition of the document are to update the test method and to reconsider the requirements. Keywords: Transient loss

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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