Fiber Optics Test Methods and Instrumentation
This standard gives the general physical, electrical and chemical methods for testing fiber optics cables for conformance with the requirements. It was prepared in order to eliminate unnecessary or undesirable variation in testing procedures. This standard does not include special test methods applicable to certain fiber optics cables which are described in the appropriate specifications, nor does it include all the test methods for fiber optics cable used in industry. In instance of conflict between the provisions of those test methods and those of the individual test procedures or specifications for particular material, the latter shall take precedence.
