|Publication Date:||1 August 2012|
|ICS Code (Fibres and cables):||33.180.10|
Scope and object
This part of IEC 60794 applies to optical fibre cables for use with telecommunication equipment and devices employing similar techniques, and to cables having a combination of both optical fibres and electrical conductors.
The object of this part of IEC 60794 is to define test procedures to be used in establishing uniform requirements for the geometrical, material, mechanical, environmental properties of optical fibre cable elements.
Throughout the document the wording "optical cable" may also include optical fibre units, microduct fibre units, etc.
General requirements and definitions are given in IEC 60794-1-20 and a complete reference guide to test method of all types in the IEC 60794-1-2.
