Guide for Installation Methods for Fiber-Optic Cables in Electric Power Generating Stations and in Industrial Facilities
|Publication Date:||15 November 2004|
This guide is intended for cables designed for use in power generating stations and industrial facilities, in both the outside plant environment and indoor applications-the latter with adequate consideration for requirements of the National Electrical Code® (NEC®) (NFPA 701).
It is not the intention of this guide to establish requirements for cables designed for installation in a highvoltage environment, such as optical ground wire and all-dielectric, self supporting. These applications are covered by other IEEE documents (IEEE Std 1138TM and IEEE Std 12229TM).
This document is intended to provide guidance for the selection, application, and installation of fiber-optic cable in power generating plants and industrial facilities. The selection and application of fiber-optic cable in these facilities differ in many respects from conventional telecommunications and local area network (LAN) installations. Those issues, which require special consideration, are identified and discussed.
