Industrial connector sets and interconnect components to be used in optical fibre control and communication systems - Product specifications Part 3-1: Type ODVA APC terminated on EN 60793-2-50 category B1.1 and B1.3 singlemode fibre to meet the requirements of category I (industrial environments) as specified in EN 50173-1 and IEC 61753-1-3

This European Standard contains the initial, start of life dimensional, optical, mechanical and environmental performance requirements which an ODVA (factory terminated) (Open DeviceNet Vendors Association) or ODVA fusion splice on connector (FSOC) terminated with cylindrical composite titanium APC ferrules with one side protected by an industrial housing, an adaptor fitted with resilient alignment sleeve and patchcord shall meet in order for it to be categorised as an EN standard product. The product is rated IP67.
Since different variants are permitted, product marking details are given in 3.6.
Products conforming to the requirements of this specification will inter mate and give the specified level of random attenuation and random return loss performance provided the same fibre type is used. The intention is that this will be true irrespective of the manufacturing source(s) of the product.
When intermating plug variants with different attenuation grades, the resulting level of attenuation cannot be assured to be any better than the worst attenuation grade.
The tests selected combined with the severities and durations, specified as Category I, are intended to reflect, although they do not necessarily satisfy all the requirements of, the boundary conditions of M3I3C3E3.
Whilst the anticipated service life expectancy of the product in this environment is 20 years, compliance with this specification does not guarantee the reliability of the product. This should be predicted using a recognised reliability assessment programme.
Compliance with this specification does not guarantee the manufacturing consistency of the product. This should be maintained using a recognised quality assurance programme.
