Optical fibre cables - Part 6-10: Indoor-outdoor cables - Family specification for universal indoor-outdoor cables (IEC 60794-6-10:2020)

This part of IEC 60794 is a family specification covering features of optical fibre cables
applicable to outdoor as well as indoor environments, called "universal indoor-outdoor cables".
These cables generally possess the characteristics associated with outdoor cable designs
(according to IEC 60794-3, however typically less stringent, and typically "non armoured")
having the thermal and mechanical robustness that makes them suitable for use in the outside
plant, while simultaneously being flexible enough, compact and lightweight and exhibiting the
fire performance required in indoor premises. A typical application is for example the centralized
cabling in central office and the premises or local area network where the same cable design
is used for the entire length of the cabling link including both the indoor as well as the outdoor
portions.

Câbles à fibres optiques - Partie 6-10 : Câbles intérieurs/extérieurs - Spécification de famille pour les câbles intérieurs/extérieurs universels (IEC 60794-6-10:2020)

IEC 60794-6-10:2020 est une spécification de famille qui couvre les fonctionnalités des câbles à fibres optiques destinés aussi bien aux environnements extérieurs qu'aux environnements intérieurs, ci-après désignés "câbles intérieurs/extérieurs universels". Ces câbles possèdent généralement les caractéristiques associées à des conceptions de câbles extérieurs (conformément à l'IEC 60794-3, appliquée cependant habituellement de manière moins rigoureuse, et en général "non armés"), présentant la robustesse thermique et mécanique qui les rend appropriés pour une utilisation dans les environnements d'usine extérieurs, tout en restant suffisamment souples, compacts et légers, et en présentant le comportement au feu exigé à l'intérieur des locaux. Une application type est par exemple la réalisation d'un câblage centralisé dans le bureau central et les locaux ou le réseau local exploitant la même conception de câble sur toute la longueur des liaisons de câblage, englobant les portions en intérieur ainsi que les portions en extérieur.

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.

International Standard IEC 60794-6-10 has been prepared by subcommittee SC 86A: Fibres

and cables, of IEC technical committee 86: Fibre optics.
The text of this International Standard is based on the following documents:

OPTICAL FIBRE CABLES –
Part 6-10: Indoor-outdoor cables –
Family specification for universal indoor-outdoor cables
1 Scope

This part of IEC 60794 is a family specification covering features of optical fibre cables

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

These cables generally possess the characteristics associated with outdoor cable designs

(according to IEC 60794-3, however typically less stringent, and typically "non armoured")

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

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

fire performance required in indoor premises. A typical application is for example the centralized

cabling in central office and the premises or local area network where the same cable design

is used for the entire length of the cabling link including both the indoor as well as the outdoor

portions.
