This part of IEC 61300 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.
