Optical fibres – Part 1-1: Measurement methods and test procedures – General and guidance
|Publication Date:||1 April 2008|
|ICS Code (Fibres and cables):||33.180.10|
Scope and object
The object of this part of IEC 60793 is to list, and give an overview of, the documents giving the uniform requirements for measuring and testing optical fibres, thereby assisting in the inspection of fibres and cables for commercial (mostly telecommunications) purposes.
The individual measurement and test methods are contained in different parts of this standard. They are identified as IEC 60793-1-X, where "X" is an assigned part number, indicating its affiliation to IEC 60793-1. See tables 4 to 7 for a complete listing of all attributes, the assigned document numbers, and the corresponding, previously assigned number for each method:
In general, measurements and tests methods apply to all class A multimode fibres and class B single-mode optical fibres covered by IEC 60793-2 series, although there may be exceptions. Clause 1 of each part contains the scope for each particular attribute.
