Optical fibre cables - Part 1-403: Generic specification - Basic optical cable test procedures - Electrical test methods - Electrical continuity test of cable metallic elements, method H3

IEC 60794-1-403:2021 specifies a method of verifying that cable metallic elements are electrically continuous throughout the cable. Electrical continuity is important for bonding and grounding, toning for location, and other related system issues, and may represent a "goodness of manufacture" criterion. Typically, the test is one of continuity and carries no resistance or conductivity requirement. The metallic elements can be tested individually or can be tested as a total group. Since this latter criterion is frequently the case, all elements are measured as a group unless specified otherwise.
NOTE It is possible detail specifications allow such elements as strength members to be non-continuous throughout the cable. This is a special case, and attention is directed to the detail specification.

Câbles à fibres optiques - Partie 1-403: Spécification générique - Procédures fondamentales d’essais des câbles optiques - Méthodes d’essais électriques - Essai de continuité électrique des éléments métalliques des câbles, méthode H3

IEC 60794-1-403: 2021 spécifie une méthode permettant de vérifier que les éléments métalliques des câbles assurent la continuité électrique tout au long du câble. La continuité électrique est importante pour les liaisons équipotentielles et les mises à la terre, ainsi que pour la fonction de génération de tonalité permettant de localiser des câbles, et les autres problématiques associées au réseau, et elle peut représenter un critère de "bonne qualité de fabrication". Généralement, l'essai a trait à la continuité et ne comporte aucune exigence de résistance ou de conductivité. Les éléments métalliques peuvent être soumis à essai séparément, ou ils peuvent être tous regroupés pour être soumis à l'essai. Etant donné que cette dernière configuration est fréquente, tous les éléments sont mesurés en groupe, sauf spécification contraire.
NOTE Il est possible que les spécifications particulières permettent à des éléments tels que les éléments de renfort d'être non continus tout au long du câble. Il s'agit d'un cas particulier, et l'attention est attirée sur la spécification particulière en question.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote international

co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To this end and

in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications, Technical Reports,

Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC Publication(s)”). Their

preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealt with

may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-governmental organizations liaising

with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely with the International Organization for

Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence between

any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of patent

rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

INTRODUCTION

This document contains method H3 of IEC 60794-1-24:2014, which will be withdrawn. The

system for optical fibre test methods have been restructured and renumbered. The electrical

tests contained in IEC 60794-1-24:2014 will now be individually numbered in the IEC 60794-1-

4xx series. Each test method is now considered to be an individual document rather than part

of a multi-test method compendium. Full cross-reference details of the methods are given in

IEC 60794-1-2.

1 Scope

This part of IEC 60794 specifies a method of verifying that cable metallic elements are

electrically continuous throughout the cable. Electrical continuity is important for bonding and

grounding, toning for location, and other related system issues, and may represent a "goodness

of manufacture" criterion. Typically, the test is one of continuity and carries no resistance or

conductivity requirement. The metallic elements can be tested individually or can be tested as

a total group. Since this latter criterion is frequently the case, all elements are measured as a

group unless specified otherwise.

NOTE It is possible detail specifications allow such elements as strength members to be non-continuous throughout

the cable. This is a special case, and attention is directed to the detail specification.
