Title Fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive components - Basic test and measurement procedures - Part 1: General and guidance
Project Number 15339
Abstract/Scope Contains a series of environmental test and measurement procedures and, in some cases, preferred severities designed to assess the ability of fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive components to perform under expected service conditions. The object is to provide uniform and reproducible environmental test procedures and measurement procedures, for those preparing specifications for fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive components.Information is provided on the following propities of components and equipment, such as connectors, splices, switches, attenuators, etc.: a) ability to operate within specified limits of temperature, pressure, humidity, mechanical stress, or other environmental conditions and certian combinations of these conditions; b) ability to withstand storage and transport; c) ability to meet the specified levels of optical performance.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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