Language in which you want to receive the document.


Applies to commercial optical fibre amplifiers (OFAs) using active fibres. It establishes requirements for accurate measurements, by means of electrical spectrum analyser test method, of the maximum reflectance tolerable at input and output (as defined in clause 3 of IEC 61291-1). The accuracy for reflectance tolerable is +/-0,5dB.
