DISTRIBUTION FRAME WIRE TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS
|Publication Date:||1 January 2011|
This Standard covers mechanical and electrical requirements for insulated copper conductor wires intended primarily for use as telecommunications central office distribution fame wire. Depending upon application, this Standard provides choices for materials.
The wires covered by this Standard are provided in singles, triples, one or two pair constructions. The wires are also provided with either a high stress or general purpose insulation.
Wires using high stress insulation should be used where user applications required use of a tougher insulating material. Wires using general purpose insulation should be used in normal user applications.
The purpose of this Standard is to establish generic technical requirements that may be referenced by individual telecommunications wire specifications covering products intended for cross-connecting the outside plant cable and the switching system terminations appearing on a distributing frame in the telecommunications central office. The parameters covered provide material, construction, and performance requirements.
Because this Standard does not cover all details of individual wire design, it cannot be used as a single document for procurement of product. This Standard is intended for use in conjunction with an individual product specification that provides complete design details for the specific wire type and designates the applicable performance requirements. Such individual wire specifications may be prepared either by the user or the manufacturer. The specification designated for procurement is at the option of the user.
