Splicer, Fusion, Fiber Optic, Aerospace
|Publication Date:||1 January 2014|
This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) defines fiber optic fusion splicers acceptable for the installation and repair of fiber optic interconnects in aerospace applications. Two different application environments are defined, depending on whether there is risk of flammable vapor or hazardous atmosphere being present. Equipment suited to flammable or hazardous environments may be over specified for factory, depot, or other relatively safe environments. To address these different application environments, two types of fusion splicer will be specified in applicable detail specifications:
Type I. For hazardous environments specifically including potentially flammable or explosive atmospheres.
Type II. For environments in which it is established that there is no risk of flammable or explosive vapors being present.

Equipment covered by this specification is intended for fiber optic repair and installation in the natural and controlled environments worldwide in which aerospace platforms are operated (on a continuous or intermittent basis for extended periods of time), either stored or transported or both. The extent of the equipment's penetration into the aerospace environment is to some extent limited by its nature. Where needs supersede requirements, this specification can be referenced in part.
The inclusion of batteries may alter the environmental resistance of equipment designed to operate from either internal or external power sources or both.View Less
