Optical fibres – Part 2-50: Product specifications – Sectional specification for class B singlemode fibres
|Publication Date:||1 December 2018|
|ICS Code (Fibres and cables):||33.180.10|
This part of IEC 60793 is applicable to optical fibre categories B-652, B-653, B-654, B-655, B-656 and B-657. A map illustrating the connection of IEC designations to ITU-T designations is shown in Table 1. These fibres are used or can be incorporated in information transmission equipment and optical fibre cables.
Three types of requirements apply to these fibres:
• general requirements, as defined in IEC 60793-2;
• specific requirements common to the class B single-mode fibres covered in this document and which are given in Clause 5;
• particular requirements applicable to individual fibre categories or specific applications, which are defined in Annexes A to F.
For some fibre categories (shown in the relevant family specifications), there are subcategories that are distinguished on the basis of difference in transmission attribute specifications. The designations for these sub-categories are documented in the individual family specifications.
Table 1 shows a map from the IEC designations to the ITU-T recommendations. The table also provides the normative annex in this document that contains the detailed specification as well as the name used to describe this fibre type in IEC 60793-2-50:2015. The ITU-T recommendations as well as the IEC categories/sub-categ
