Description / Abstract:


This Standard specifies a procedure for the measurement of the insertion loss of a fiber optic interconnection on single mode, highly linearly birefringent optical fiber, i.e. either polarization-maintaining fiber (PMF) or polarizing fiber (PZF). The connector can be mounted on the PMF/PZF pigtail of a component or part of a cable assembly. Insertion loss, as used in this Standard, is the measured attenuation of the interconnection, expressed in decibels. The method described in this Standard is the PMF/PZF equivalent of ANSI/TIA/EIA-455-171 Method D with the insertion loss reported as a positive number.
