Standard for Qualifying Fiber Optic Cables, Connections, and Optical Fiber Splices for Use in Safety Systems in Nuclear Power Generating Stations
|Publication Date:||10 September 2011|
This standard provides requirements, directions, and methods for qualifying fiber optic cables, connections, and optical fiber splices for use in safety systems of nuclear power generating stations. Cables, connections, optical fibers, and splices within or integral to other devices (e.g., sensors, instruments, panels, etc.) shall be qualified using the requirements in the applicable device standard or IEEE Std 323TM-2003, as appropriate. However, this standard's requirements may be applied to the fiber optic cable, connections, and optical fiber splices within these devices.
The principal purpose of this standard is to provide specific directions for the implementation of IEEE Std 323TM-2003 for qualification of fiber optic cables, including hybrid cables, connections, and optical fiber splices.
