BS EN 60793-1-51:2014

Optical fibres. Measurement methods and test procedures. Dry heat (steady state) tests

Status : Current   Published : May 2014



IEC 60793-1-51:2014 provides a practical method for evaluating fibre performance in a defined environment. The purpose of this standard is to determine the suitability of optical fibre sub-category A1a to A1d multimode fibres and class B and C single-mode fibres to withstand the environmental condition of high temperature (dry heat) which may occur in actual use, storage and/or transport. The test is primarily intended to permit the observation of effects of high temperature over a given period. This procedure is conducted in accordance with IEC 60068-2-2, Test Bd. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition, published in 2001, and constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:

- harmonizing the content with sectional specifications of relevant fibre types;

- extending the applicability of the document to class C single-mode fibres. Keywords: optical fibre sub-category A1a to A1d multimode fibres, class B and C single-mode fibres, high temperature (dry heat)
