IEC 60869-1:2012 applies to fibre optic power control devices. These have all of the following general features:
- they are passive in that they contain no opto-electronic or other transducing elements;
- they have two ports for the transmission of optical power and control the transmitted power in a fixed or variable fashion;
- the ports are unconnectorized optical fibre tails or optical fibre pigtails with connectors. This standard establishes generic requirements for the following passive optical devices:
- optical attenuator;
