1.1 Product definition This European Standard contains the initial, start of life dimensional, optical, mechanical and environmental performance requirements which a multimode mechanical splice will meet in order for it to be categorised as an EN standard product. Since different variants and grades of performance are permitted, product marking and identification details are given in 3.5. Although in this document the product is qualified for EN 60793-2-10 type A1a.1, A1a.2, A1a.3 and A1b multimode fibres, it may also be suitable for other fibre types. 1.2 Interoperability The installed mechanical splice fits into a fibre management system with optical fibre splice cassettes or splice trays. This European Standard specifies the following two physical interface dimensions: • cross sectional profile with width, height or diameter (in millimetres); • length (in millimetres). 1.3 Expected performance In this document, the performance of a mechanical splice is given with identical fibres only. Losses associated with fibre cladding diameter and mode field mismatch are not taken into account. The measured attenuation is a function of the core concentricity, cladding non-circularity and alignment capability. The optical return loss performance is a function of the index matching gel and the fibre end face preparation. 1.4 Operating environment The tests selected combined with the severities and durations are representative of an outdoor enclosed environment defined as category U in EN 61753-1. To ensure that the product can be used in closures, boxes or street cabinet for categories A, G and S (as defined EN 61753-1) the specified lower temperature is extended to -40 °C and requirements for temporary flooding have been added. 1.5 Reliability Whilst the anticipated service life expectancy of the product in this environment is 20 years, compliance with this specification does not guarantee the reliability of the product. This should be predicted using a recognised reliability assessment programme. 1.6 Quality assurance Compliance with this specification does not guarantee the manufacturing consistency of the product. This should be maintained using a recognised quality assurance programme.
