Calibration of fibre optic chromatic dispersion test sets

This standard provides standard procedures for the calibration of  optical fibre chromatic dispersion (CD) test sets. It also  provides procedures to perform calibration checking on CD test  sets whereby an extension to the test set calibration period  may be obtained. This standard is applicable to all types of CD  test set, with the exception that measurements on multimode  optical fibers are excluded.

Kalibrierung von Prüfaufbauten zur Bestimmung der chromatischen Dispersion

Etalonnage des ensembles d'essai de la dispersion chromatique des fibres optiques

La présente Norme Internationale fournit des procédures normalisées pour l'étalonnage des ensembles d'essai de la dispersion chromatique (CD) des fibres optiques. Elle fournit également des procédures pour réaliser la vérification de l'étalonnage sur des ensembles d'essai CD pour lesquels une prolongation de la période d'étalonnage de l'ensemble d'essai peut être obtenue.

This European Standard was approved by CENELEC on 2005-09-01. CENELEC members are bound to
comply with the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations which stipulate the conditions for giving this European
Standard the status of a national standard without any alteration.

Up-to-date lists and bibliographical references concerning such national standards may be obtained on
application to the Central Secretariat or to any CENELEC member.

This European Standard exists in three official versions (English, French, German). A version in any other
language made by translation under the responsibility of a CENELEC member into its own language and
notified to the Central Secretariat has the same status as the official versions.

CENELEC members are the national electrotechnical committees of Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Czech
Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia,
Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden,
Switzerland and United Kingdom.

EN 61744:2005 - 2 -
The text of document 86/236/FDIS, future edition 2 of IEC 61744, prepared by IEC TC 86, Fibre
optics, was submitted to the IEC-CENELEC parallel vote and was approved by CENELEC as
EN 61744 on 2005-09-01.
This European Standard supersedes EN 61744:2001.
The principal change is the addition of reference to wavelength in vacuum. This reference is critical for
accurate production, measurement and sale of products in the emerging market applications of fibre
optics such as dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) systems.
The following dates were fixed:
– latest date by which the EN has to be implemented
at national level by publication of an identical
national standard or by endorsement (dop) 2006-07-01
– latest date by which the national standards conflicting
with the EN have to be withdrawn (dow) 2008-09-01
Annex ZA has been added by CENELEC.
Endorsement notice
The text of the International Standard IEC 61744:2005 was approved by CENELEC as a European
Standard without any modification.
In the official version, for Bibliography, the following notes have to be added for the standards indicated:
IEC 61315 NOTE Harmonized as EN 61315:1997 (not modified).
IEC 61746 NOTE Harmonized as EN 61746:2005 (not modified).
