BS EN 60793-2-30:2015

Optical fibres. Product specifications. Sectional specification for category A3 multimode fibres

Status : Current   Published : October 2015



IEC 60793-2-30:2015(E9 is applicable to sub-categories A3a, A3b, A3c, A3d, A3e, A3f and A3g. These fibres are used or can be incorporated in different information transmission equipment, other applications employing similar light transmitting techniques as well as fibre optic cables. Three types of requirements apply to these fibres:

- general requirements, as defined in IEC 60793-2;

- specific requirements common to the category A3 multimode fibres covered in this standard and which are given in Clause 3;

- particular requirements applicable to the individual sub-categories or specific applications (e.g. automotive or industrial applications), which are defined in the normative sub-category annexes. This fourth edition cancels and replaces the third edition published in 2012 and constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:

- specified test specimen length and measurement details for core diameter and NAff measurements have been added;

- two new sub-categories have been added;

- NAth is replaced by Naff. Keywords: category A3 multimode fibres
