|Publication Date:||1 March 2020|
|ICS Code (Fibres and cables):||33.180.10|
This part of IEC 60794 applies to optical fibre cables for use with telecommunication equipment and devices employing similar techniques, and to cables having a combination of both optical fibres and electrical conductors.
The object of this standard is to define test procedures to be used in establishing uniform requirements for mechanical requirement performance.
Throughout this standard the wording "optical cable" may also include optical fibre units, microduct fibre units, etc.
See IEC 60794-1-2 for general requirements and definitions and for a complete reference guide to test methods of all types.
