Optical fibre cables - Part 1-31: Generic specification - Optical cable elements - Optical fibre ribbon
IEC 60794-1-31:2021 which is a generic specification, covers optical fibre ribbons. Requirements which are described in this part apply to optical fibre ribbon cables for use with telecommunication equipment and devices employing similar techniques, in particular optical fibre cables in IEC 60794-2 for indoor use, in IEC 60794-3 for outdoor use, in IEC 60794-4 for self-supporting overhead use, in IEC 60794-5 for air blown use and in IEC 60794-6 for indoor/outdoor use. The detailed specification can be verified in specifications for each application such as IEC 60794-2 and IEC 60794-3. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2018. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- The geometrical requirements for optical fibre ribbon with typically 250 µm coating diameter have been modified and those for the optical fibre ribbon with typically 200 µm coating diameter have been added.
- "Identification by positional identification" and "Identification by ribbon coding and fibre colouring" are moved to a new informative Annex A.
