Fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive components - Basic test and measurement procedures - Part 2-7: Tests - Bending moment


Do you need a multi-user copy?




IEC 61300-2-7:2013 details a procedure for determining the suitability of a fibre optic device to withstand the environmental condition of a bending moment which may occur in actual use, storage and/or transport. The test is primarily intended to permit the observation of effects of a bending moment. The bending moment may result in effects that would destroy functional utility, cause loss of physical strength, and cause changes in other important mechanical properties. Degradation of optical properties may also occur. The specimen may be a component, a connector set, a splice or other device combination intended for fibre optic usage. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1995. It constitutes a technical revision.This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- a complete reconsideration of the entire document, including additional normative references;
- clarification of the device under test (DUT);
- clarification of the relationship between severities, performance categories and the DUT. Keywords: suitability of a fibre optic device to withstand the environmental condition of a bending moment
