IEC 60794-3-70 Redline version

IEC 60794-3-70:2021 RLV
Optical fibre cables - Part 3-70: Outdoor cables - Family specification for outdoor optical fibre cables for rapid/multiple deployment
IEC 60794-3-70:2021 RLV contains both the official IEC International Standard and its Redline version. The Redline version is available in English only and provides you with a quick and easy way to compare all the changes between the official IEC Standard and its previous edition.

IEC 60794-3-70:2021 covers outdoor optical fibre cables intended for rugged terrestrial rapid/multiple deployment. These cables, with enhanced mechanical, environmental and ingress performance can be used wherever a rapid or multiple deployment is relevant (e.g. mobile broadcast units, emergency rescue services, tactical ground-forces, outdoor motion-robotics, mining machinery, temporary repair cables for damaged links, etc.). This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2016. It constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- incorporation of the new classification system for optical fibre categories, sub-categories in IEC 60793-2-10;
- incorporation of the new classification system for optical fibre categories, sub-categories and models in IEC 60793-2-50;
- updating of cabled fibre performance categories in alignment with ISO/IEC 11801-1;
- updating of bibliographical references.
