ARP6283/1 In-Service Fiber Optic Inspection, Evaluation and Cleaning, Best Practices, Expanded Beam Termini
Provide user information on best practice methods and processes for the in-service inspection, evaluation and cleaning of expanded beam fiber optic interconnect components, test equipment, and test leads based on the information provided in AIR6031. This document provides the user with a decision making tool to be able to determine if the fiber optic components are acceptable for operation with expanded beam fiber optic termini.
Rationale: The Aerospace industry has always required the highest standards of workmanship to be maintained. To ensure that the Aerospace fiber optics industry adopts these same high standards, it’s essential that best practice methods and processes are followed in the in-service inspection, evaluation and cleaning of fiber optic termini and connectors.
