Language in which you want to receive the document.


This part of IEC 61753 contains the minimum tests, test severities and measurement requirements which a mechanical fibre splice need to satisfy in order to be categorised as meeting the requirements of single-mode fibre splice for use in category OP (Outdoor protected) environments, as defined in IEC 61753-1.
This document for mechanical splices defines the requirements for standard optical performance under a set of specified conditions. The standard contains a series or a set of tests and measurements with clearly stated conditions, severities and pass/fail criteria. The series of tests, commonly referred to as an operating service environment or performance category, is intended to be a basis to prove the product’s ability to satisfy the requirements of a specific application, market sector or user group.
