Organization: ICEA
Publication Date: 7 June 2000
Status: inactive
Page Count: 98
scope:

This Standard covers optical fiber communications cable intended for outdoor use and normally installed aerially, directly buried, or placed in underground ducts. Materials, constructions, and performance requirements are included in the Standard, together with applicable test procedures. Refer to ANSI/ICEA S-83-596 for optical fiber communications cables intended for indoor use, and to ICEA S-101-696 for optical fiber communication cables intended for combined indoor/outdoor use.

Products covered by this Standard are intended only for operation under conditions normally found in communications systems. These products normally convey communications signals (voice, video, and data) from point-to-point or point-to-multi-point, external to buildings. Products covered by this Standard may be factory terminated with connectors or splicing modules.

When a composite cable is required, the applicable metallic conductor requirements shall be as established by agreement between the end user and the cable manufacturer. The requirements of ANSI/ICEA S-84-608 should be considered when determining appropriate requirements.

The normal temperature ranges for cables covered by this Standard are:

Operating temperature: −40 °C to 70 °C (−40 °F to 158 °F)

Installation temperature: −30 °C to 60 °C (−22 °F to 140 °F)

Storage temperature: −40 °C to 70 °C (−40 °F to 167 °F)

The standard installation tensile rating for cables covered by this Standard is 2670 N (600 lbf). The residual load is defined as any load less than or equal to 30 percent of the installation tensile rating.

The standard minimum bend diameters for cables covered by this Standard are:

Residual (Installed): 20 × Cable O.D.

Loaded Condition (During Installation): 40 × Cable O.D.
