Abstract IEC 61918:2010 specifies basic requirements for the installation of media for communication networks in industrial premises and within and between the automation islands, of industrial sites. It covers balanced and optical fibre cabling and the cabling infrastructure for wireless media, but not the wireless media itself. Additional media are covered in the IEC 61784-5 series. It also covers:
- the installation of generic telecommunication cabling for industrial premises as specified in ISO/IEC 24702;
- the connection between the generic telecommunications cabling specified in ISO/IEC 24702
- and the specific communication cabling of an automation island, where an automation outlet (AO) replaces the telecommunication outlet (TO) of ISO/IEC 24702.
