Organization: ANSI
Publication Date: 1 January 1988
Status: inactive
Page Count: 47
scope:

This standard provides guidance for the safe use, maintenance, and service of optical fiber communications systems (OFCS) utilizing laser diodes or light emitting diodes (LED) with average output powers of less than 500 mW and wavelengths between 0.4 μm and 1 mm. This standard applies only to systems where the radiant energy is confined to an optical fiber during intended use. For OFCS that do not meet these critería, ANSI Z136.1 should be consulted.

NOTE: At present no known OFCS operate at wavelengths above 1.7 μm nor at power levels above 10 mW. However, guidance is provided for longer wavelengths and higher power levels and is compatible with ANSI Z136.1.

intended Use:

This standard is intended to be used by manufacturers of OFCS and by installation and service personnel. It provides detailed safety information for systems where access is in uncontrolled areas,... View More
