Fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive components - Basic test and measurement procedures - Part 3-39: Examinations and measurements - Physical contact (PC) optical connector reference plug selection for return loss measurements


Do you need a multi-user copy?




IEC 61300-3-39:2011 selects non-angled physical contact (PC) optical connector plugs for use as the reference plug in the return loss RL measurement and to define an acceptance return loss value RLa for use in plug acceptance testing. This procedure is for use to guarantee a certain return loss value RL when two plugs have been successfully tested against the reference connector when randomly mated. This second edition of IEC 61300-3-39 cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1997 and constitutes a technical revision. Changes from the previous edition are structure of the standard, general description and the Annex.
