<!-- NEW! -->IEC 61300-3-45:2023 is available as <a href="https://webstore.iec.ch/publication/86633">IEC 61300-3-45:2023 RLV</a> which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.</br></br>IEC 61000-3-45:2023 describes the procedure required to measure the statistical distribution and mean attenuation for random mated optical connectors with physical contact (PC) and angled physical contact (APC) polished multi-fibre rectangular ferrules as defined in the IEC 61754 series. This measurement method is applicable to cable assemblies. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2011. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:

a) addition of sample size for > 12-fibre connector measurement;

b) inclusion of guidance for multimode measurement.
