Fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive components - Basic test and measurement procedures - Part 2-11: Tests - Axial compression
IEC 61300-2-11:2023 is available as IEC 61300-2-11:2023 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.IEC 61300-2-11:2023 is to ensure that the captivation or the attachment of the cable to the fibre optic devices or components, for example fibre optic closures, will withstand compressive axial loads likely to be applied during normal service. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2012. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) added Terms and definitions clause;
b) removed severity table for closures;
