TIA Issues New Optical Power Loss Measurements of Installed Multimode Fiber Cable Plant; Modification of IEC 61280-4-1 edition 2, Fiber-optic Communications Subsystem Test Procedure – Part 4-1: Installed Cable Plant – Multimode Attenuation Measurement Standard
Arlington, VA (April 16, 2015) – The Telecommunications Industry Association, which develops standards for the information and communications technology industry, has released a new document, ANSI/TIA-526.14-C Optical power loss measurements of installed multimode fiber cable plant; modification of IEC 61280-4-1 edition 2, Fiber-optic communications subsystem test procedure – Part 4-1: Installed cable plant – Multimode attenuation measurement.
This document, ANSI/TIA-526-14-C, changes the nature of the document from an adoption to an adaption because it includes variances from the IEC standard. Material within the previous foreword is retained and augmented with new material that defines the variances. The variances are modifications of the requirements on the encircled flux launch condition with regard to
its normative usage for measuring the attenuation of installed multimode fiber cabling.
ANSI/TIA-526.14-C was formulated under the cognizance of the TIA TR-42 Telecommunications Cabling Systems, TR-42.11 Optical Systems (568) subcommittee.
TIA actively seeks participation in these projects from the user and general interest communities.
