Standard Construction of Composite Fiber Optic Overhead Ground Wire (OPGW) for Use on Electric Utility Power Lines
Includes all amendments and changes through Reaffirmation Notice , 2002
Additional Comments: ONLY AVAILABLE IN ELECTRONIC FORMAT
This standard covers the construction, mechanical and electrical performance, installation guidelines, acceptance criteria, and test requirements for a composite overhead ground wire with optical fibers commonly known as OPGW. The OPGW has the dual performance functions of a standard ground conductor with telecommunications capabilities.
This standard provides both construction and performance requirements that ensure within the guidelines of this standard that the ground wire function and maintenance of optical fiber integrity and optical transmissions are proper.
