Optical fibres - Part 1-1: Measurement methods and test procedures - General and guidance

NEW!IEC 60793-1-1:2017 is available as IEC 60793-1-1:2017 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.
IEC 60793-1-1: 2017 lists and gives guidance on the use of documents giving the uniform requirements for measuring and testing optical fibres, thereby assisting in the inspection of fibres and cables for commercial (mostly telecommunications) purposes. The individual measurement and test methods are contained in the different parts of the IEC 60793 series. They are identified as IEC 60793-1-X, where "X" is an assigned sub-part number, indicating its affiliation to the IEC 60793-1 series.  In general, measurements and tests methods apply to all class A multimode fibres and class B and class C single-mode optical fibres covered by IEC 60793-2 (all parts) relating to product specifications, although there can be exceptions. Clause 1 of each part of the IEC 60793 series contains the scope for each particular attribute.  This fourth edition cancels and replaces the third edition published in 2008. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: addition of rounding rules in Clause  REF _Ref469662545 \r \h 4 08D0C9EA79F9BACE118C8200AA004BA90B02000000080000000E0000005F005200650066003400360039003600360032003500340035000000 ; addition of two packaging requirements in Clause  REF _Ref469662553 \r \h 10 08D0C9EA79F9BACE118C8200AA004BA90B02000000080000000E0000005F005200650066003400360039003600360032003500350033000000 d) and e).

NEW!IEC 60793-1-1:2017 est disponible sous forme de IEC 60793-1-1:2017 RLV qui contient la Norme internationale et sa version Redline, illustrant les modifications du contenu technique depuis l'édition précédente.

Optična vlakna - 1-1. del: Metode merjenja in preskusni postopki - Splošno in smernice (IEC 60793-1-1:2017)

Ta del standarda IEC 60793 navaja dokumente, ki podajajo enotne zahteve za merjenje in preskušanje optičnih vlaken, ter podaja navodila o njihovi uporabi, s čimer je v pomoč pri pregledovanju vlaken in kablov za komercialne (večinoma telekomunikacijske) namene.
Posamezne merilne in preskusne metode so navedene v različnih delih skupine standardov IEC 60793. Določene so kot IEC 60793-1-X, pri čemer je »X« dodeljena številka poddela, ki označuje njegovo zvezo s skupino standardov IEC 60793-1.
Na splošno se merilne in preskusne metode uporabljajo za vsa večrodna vlakna razreda A ter enorodna optična vlakna razreda B in C, ki so zajeta v standardu IEC 60793-2 (vsi deli) v zvezi s specifikacijami izdelkov, čeprav lahko obstajajo izjeme. Točka 1 vsakega dela skupine standardov IEC 60793 vsebuje področje uporabe za posamezen atribut.
