Fibre optic active components and devices - Test and measurement procedures - Part 3: Optical power variation induced by mechanical disturbance in optical receptacles and transceiver interfaces


Do you need a multi-user copy?




IEC 62150-3:2015 It has been found that some optical transceivers and receptacles are susceptible to fibre optic cable induced stress when side forces are applied to the mated cable-connector assembly, resulting in variations in the transmitted optical power. The purpose of this part of IEC 62150 is to define physical stress tests to ensure that such optical connections (cable and receptacle) can continue to function within specifications. This standard specifies the test requirements and procedures for qualifying optical devices for sensitivity to coupled power variations induced by mechanical disturbance at the optical ports of the device. This standard applies to active devices with optical receptacle interfaces. This standard describes the testing of transceivers for use with single-mode connectors having either 2,5 mm or 1,25 mm ferrules. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2012 and constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- extension of application field to SC connector interface transceivers in addition to LC connector interface transceivers specified in the first edition as both transceiver interfaces are very important in the industry;
- addition of a new Annex E dealing with load value difference for connector type in Method A.
