Optical fibre cables - Part 5: Sectional specification - Microduct cabling for installation by blowing


Do you need a multi-user copy?




IEC 60794-5:2014 which is a sectional specification, specifies the requirements of microduct optical fibre cables, microduct fibre units, microducts and protected microducts for installation by blowing for outdoor and/or indoor use. The microduct optical fibre cables and microduct fibre units utilize the structure of the microduct or protected microducts to support installation and to provide protection over the design lifetime. These products may be used for applications such as communication and transmission networks, transmission, telephone and data processing equipment, control and monitoring applications. The cabling structures described in this sectional specification are uniquely designed to facilitate and take advantage of installation by blowing into microducts. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition, published in 2006, and constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- the addition of constructional requirements, including a reference to IEC 60794-3 for microduct optical fibre cables;
- the specification has been streamlined by cross-referencing IEC 60794-1-1. Keywords: microduct optical fibre cables, microduct fibre units, microducts and protected microducts, installation by blowing
