A preview of IEC 61753-021-3: 2012 fiber optic products international standard

IEC: International Electrotechnical Commission

  As we know, in most Europe and north American telecom and IT projects, the actual use fiber optic products must be qualified on Europe norm IEC 61753-021-3: 2012. Today, FOT’s Blog is sharing a preview of this important fiber optic items international standard.

FIBRE OPTIC INTERCONNECTING DEVICES AND PASSIVE COMPONENTS – PERFORMANCE STANDARD –
Part 021-3: Single-mode fibre optic connectors for category U – Uncontrolled environment

1 Scope

  This part of IEC 61753 defines minimum initial test and measurement requirements and severities which a single-mode connector, either part of a pigtail, or part of a cord, must satisfy in order to be categorized as meeting the IEC standard category U (uncontrolled environment).
