TIA issues New FOTP-178 IEC 60793-1-32 Optical Fibres – Part 1- 32: Measurement Methods and Test Procedures – Coating Strippability Standard
Arlington, VA (April 16, 2021) – The Telecommunications Industry Association, which develops standards for the information and communications technology industry, has released a new document, ANSI/TIA-455-178-C, FOTP-178 IEC 60793-1-32 Optical Fibres – Part 1- 32: Measurement Methods and Test Procedures – Coating Strippability.
ANSI/TIA-455-178-C specifies requirements as a part of IEC 60793 is intended primarily for testing either fibres as produced by a fibre manufacturer or subsequently overcoated (tight buffered) using various polymers. The test can be performed either on fibres as produced or after exposure to various environments. The object of this standard is to establish uniform requirements for the mechanical characteristic – coating strippability. This test quantifies the force required to mechanically remove the protective coating from optical fibres along their longitudinal axis.
ANSI/TIA-455-178-C was formulated under the cognizance of the TIA TR-42 Telecommunications Cabling Systems, TR-42.12 Optical Fibers and Cables subcommittee.
For more information about TR-42 and how to participate in standards development with TIA, contact Cheryl Thibideau at email@example.com.
TIA actively seeks participation in these projects from the user and general interest communities.
