Optical fibre cables - Part 6: Indoor-outdoor cables - Sectional specification for indoor-outdoor cables

IEC 60794-6:2020 is a sectional specification covering general features of optical fibre cables applicable to outdoor as well as indoor environments, called "indoor-outdoor cables". Indoor-outdoor cables are deployed in outside plant environments as well as in premises thus fulfilling outdoor as well as indoor requirements. Typical application spaces are, for example, extension of a duct cable into a building or using this design for centralized cabling in the central office, the premises or local area network where the same cable is used for the entire length of the cabling link including both the indoor as well as the outdoor portions. Cables which generally possess the characteristics associated with outdoor cable designs having the thermal and mechanical robustness that makes them suitable for use in the outside plant, while simultaneously being relatively flexible, compact and lightweight and exhibiting the fire performance required in indoor premises are specified in IEC 60794-6-10. Flame retardant outdoor cables as specified in IEC 60794-6-20 are used when most of the cable length is deployed as an outdoor cable with a part of its length deployed indoors. The cable design can be derived from a typical outdoor cable design according to the product specifications described in IEC 60794-3. The specific performance related to bend radii according to the installation situation and fire performance according to the regional legislation mainly requires the appropriate selection of the jacket material in combination with other material and/or design considerations. Because of the use in buildings with tighter space restrictions, higher flexibility of the cable is often required for the installation. Often, smaller diameter cables are preferred. Indoor cables which are weatherised as specified in (IEC 60794-6-30) are used when an indoor cable is used outdoors over a short distance (few meters), for example when the network access point (NAP) is very close to the building. The indoor-outdoor fibre optical cable design can be derived from an indoor design (see IEC 60794-2 and IEC TR 62901 for typical applications) with specific outdoor performance features added. Critical parameters are UV stability, and resistance against exposure to humidity.

Câbles à fibres optiques - Partie 6: Câbles intérieurs/extérieurs - Spécification intermédiaire pour les câbles intérieurs/extérieurs

IEC 60794-6:2020 est une spécification intermédiaire qui couvre les fonctionnalités générales des câbles à fibres optiques destinés aussi bien aux environnements extérieurs qu'aux environnements intérieurs, ci-après désignés "câbles intérieurs/extérieurs". Les câbles intérieurs/extérieurs sont déployés dans les environnements d'usine extérieurs ainsi que dans les locaux, satisfaisant donc aux exigences d'utilisation en extérieur ainsi qu'aux exigences d'utilisation en intérieur. Les applications types sont par exemple: prolongation dans un bâtiment d'un câble installé dans un conduit, ou utilisation de cette conception pour réaliser un câblage centralisé dans le bureau central, les locaux ou le réseau local exploitant le même câble sur toute la longueur des liaisons de câblage, englobant les portions en intérieur ainsi que les portions en extérieur. Les câbles qui possèdent généralement les caractéristiques associées à des conceptions de câbles extérieurs, présentant la robustesse thermique et mécanique qui les rend appropriés pour une utilisation dans les environnements d'usine extérieurs, tout en restant relativement souples, compacts et légers et en présentant le comportement au feu exigé à l'intérieur des locaux, sont spécifiés dans l'IEC 60794-6-10. Les câbles extérieurs retardateurs de flamme spécifiés dans l'IEC 60794-6-20 sont utilisés lorsque la majeure partie de la longueur de câble est déployée dans un environnement extérieur, et que la portion restante est déployée dans un environnement intérieur. La conception de câble peut être déterminée à partir d'une conception de câble extérieur type, conformément aux spécifications de produit décrites dans l'IEC 60794-3. Les performances spécifiques relatives aux rayons de courbure, conformément à la situation d'installation et au comportement au feu, et conformément à la législation régionale en vigueur, exigent principalement de choisir de manière appropriée le matériau de la gaine, ainsi que son association à d'autres matériaux et/ou à d'autres considérations relatives à la conception. En raison d'une utilisation dans des bâtiments qui présentent des restrictions liées à des espaces plus confinés, une plus grande souplesse du câble est souvent exigée pour l'installation. Souvent, des câbles de diamètre réduit sont privilégiés.
Des câbles intérieurs qui sont conçus pour être résistants aux intempéries, spécifiés dans l'IEC 60794-6-30, sont utilisés lorsqu'un câble intérieur est utilisé en extérieur sur une courte distance (quelques mètres), par exemple lorsque le point d'accès au réseau (NAP, network access point) est très proche du bâtiment. La conception de câble à fibres optiques intérieur/extérieur peut être déterminée à partir d'une conception de câble intérieur (voir l'IEC 60794-2 et l'IEC TR 62901 pour des applications types), en y ajoutant des fonctionnalités spécifiques de comportement en extérieur. Les paramètres critiques sont la stabilité au rayonnement ultraviolet (UV) et la résistance à l'exposition à l'humidité.

OPTICAL FIBRE CABLES –
Part 6: Indoor-outdoor cables –
Sectional specification for indoor-outdoor cables
1 Scope

This part of IEC 60794 is a sectional specification covering general features of optical fibre

cables applicable to outdoor as well as indoor environments, called "indoor-outdoor cables".

Indoor-outdoor cables are deployed in outside plant environments as well as in premises thus

fulfilling outdoor as well as indoor requirements. Typical application spaces are, for example,

extension of a duct cable into a building or using this design for centralized cabling in the central

office, the premises or local area network where the same cable is used for the entire length of

the cabling link including both the indoor as well as the outdoor portions.

Cables which generally possess the characteristics associated with outdoor cable designs

having the thermal and mechanical robustness that makes them suitable for use in the outside

plant, while simultaneously being relatively flexible, compact and lightweight and exhibiting the

fire performance required in indoor premises are specified in IEC 60794-6-10.

Flame retardant outdoor cables as specified in IEC 60794-6-20 are used when most of the cable

length is deployed as an outdoor cable with a part of its length deployed indoors. The cable

design can be derived from a typical outdoor cable design according to the product

specifications described in IEC 60794-3. The specific performance related to bend radii

according to the installation situation and fire performance according to the regional legislation

mainly requires the appropriate selection of the jacket material in combination with other

material and/or design considerations. Because of the use in buildings with tighter space

restrictions, higher flexibility of the cable is often required for the installation. Often, smaller

diameter cables are preferred.

Indoor cables which are weatherised as specified in (IEC 60794-6-30) are used when an indoor

cable is used outdoors over a short distance (few meters), for example when the network access

point (NAP) is very close to the building. The indoor-outdoor fibre optical cable design can be

derived from an indoor design (see IEC 60794-2 and IEC TR 62901 for typical applications)

with specific outdoor performance features added. Critical parameters are UV stability, and

resistance against exposure to humidity.

4 Optical fibres

Optical fibre shall be used which meets the requirements of IEC 60793-2. The fibre type shall

be agreed between the customer and supplier.

The attenuation, attenuation continuity, cut-off wavelength and PMD should conform with the

appropriate sectional, family, detailed or product specification of IEC 60794 (all parts).

The attenuation coefficient shall be measured in accordance with IEC 60793-1-40 and

IEC 60794-1-1.
5 Cable elements
5.1 General

Generally, optical cables comprise several elements (see IEC 60794-1-3) or individual

constituents, depending on the cable design which takes into account the cable application,

operating environment and manufacturing processes, as well as the need to protect the fibre

during handling and cabling.
---------------------- Page: 8 ----------------------
IEC 60794-6:2020 © IEC 2020 – 7 –
5.2 Materials compatibility

The material(s) used for a cable element shall be selected to be compatible with the other

elements in contact with it. Compatibility testing should be in accordance with IEC 60794-1-219.

Alternative ageing conditions and tests may be agreed between the customer and supplier.

5.3 Optical elements

Optical elements are cable elements containing optical fibres and are designed to be a primary

functional unit of the cable core. Optical elements and each fibre within a cable element shall

be uniquely identified as described in IEC 60794-2 and IEC 60794-3.
5.4 Testing of cable elements

Tests may be performed on cable elements either in non-cabled form or in finished cables.

Unless otherwise specified, testing shall be performed on cable elements in a finished cable.

This means that testing shall be performed only on a finished cable if the cable element

manufacturing operation is done by the same manufacturer as the cabling operation. Testing

shall be performed on cable elements only if the cable element is supplied by a third party; this

does not exclude testing of the finished cable. Testing of elements as defined in

IEC 60794-1-23 can, of course, be used as a guide for internal verification by a manufacturer.

5.5 Cable elements to be used for indoor-outdoor cable

All relevant cable elements to be used for indoor-outdoor cables are described in IEC 60794-2

and IEC 60794-3.
6 Common specifications for indoor-outdoor cables

Indoor-outdoor cables are defined as cables which fulfill the following common specifications:

– resistance against humidity;

– UV resistance according to IEC 60794-3:2014, 6.6.3, IEC 60794-1-22, method F14, and the

following Table 1;

– flame retardance according to IEC 60794-2:2017, 7.4, and the following Table 1.

NOTE Cables which consist of a typical indoor cable surrounded by a removable humidity/UV resistant jacket are

considered as outdoor FR (and thus compliant to IEC 60794-6-20); however, only the part of the cable design which

is installed indoors need to fulfil FR requirements.

Examples are exposure to various fluids (e.g. long term storage in water, acids, basis, strong solvents), exposure

to mould growth, exposure to rodents, birds or insects, exposure to freezing water (ice), etc.

Short-term storage in water, as well as use of cleaning agents, is required.

However, other methods of UV stabilization might be needed as a consequence of the use of FR jacket which

might consist of a different polymer than PE and have a colour other than black so CB cannot be used;

7 Installation and operating conditions

Installation and operating conditions shall be as required by the indoor-outdoor family

specifications:
– IEC 60794-6-10 for universal cables;
– IEC 60794-6-20 for flame retardant outdoor cables;
– IEC 60794-6-30 for weatherised indoor cables.
8 Characterization of cable elements

Cable elements as described in 5.5 can be tested as described in IEC 60794-2:2017, 7.2, and

IEC 60794-3:2014, Clause 8.
9 Test conditions for indoor-outdoor cables
9.1 Test methods applicable for indoor-outdoor cables

Compliance with the specification requirements shall be verified by carrying out tests detailed

in the relevant family specification. It is not intended that all tests be carried out in all cases.

The tests to be applied and the frequency of testing shall be agreed between the customer and

supplier.
---------------------- Page: 10 ----------------------
IEC 60794-6:2020 © IEC 2020 – 9 –
9.2 Fire performance

All cables according to this document shall pass fire performance specifications. The

requirements may differ in different regions (e.g. North America, EU ). But they also can differ

from country to country.

NOTE 1 IEC TR 62222 provides guidance and recommendations for the requirements and test methods for the fire

performance of communication cables when installed in buildings. The recommendations relate to typical applications

and installation practices, and an assessment of the fire hazards presented. Account is also taken of applicable

legislation and regulation.

IEC TR 62222 references several IEC fire performance test methods and also other test methods that can be required

by local or national legislation and regulation. It is important that the tests to be applied fulfil the national legislation

and regulation and the specific requirements by its intended use.

NOTE 2 Flame retardant cables, including flame retardant indoor-outdoor cables for European applications, require

CE marking according to the so-called CPR (construction product regulation – see CLCEN 50575 and subordinate

standards) when permanently installed in buildings. Without the appropriate marking of the product and the supply

of a declaration of performance, the use is not allowed in the European Union.
10 Quality assurance

It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to establish quality assurance by quality control

procedures which ensure that the product meets the requirements of this specification. When

the customer wishes to specify acceptance tests to other quality procedures, it is essential that

an agreement is reached between the customer and supplier at the time of ordering.

11 Packaging

Cable shall be supplied on reels or in coils suitably protected for transport and the cable ends

shall be sealed, if necessary, to prevent the ingress of moisture.
