Tier 1: Test Equipment for simplex and duplex connectors

In one hook-up, these instruments perform length & bi-directional pass/fail loss testing at two wavelengths. So a fiber tested with these instruments can be used anywhere in a related network. They are also equipped with an optical power meter, VFL, and tone source / detection, so can perform absolute power, polarity & continuity testing.

Tier 1: Test Equipment for MPO connectors

These test kits perform single-directional loss testing at two wavelngths. They are equipped with an optical power meter, and tone source / detection, so can also perform absolute power, polarity & continuity testing. Instruments can also be supplied individually. Length may need to be determined by some other method, eg by OTDR, cable inspection etc. For many short MPO links, length testing may not be useful / needed.

(Tier 1) Polarity / Continuity Test Procedures

These craft procedures are specific to equipment and situations, and detailed procedures are not covered by these standards.

Procedures for eye safety are the responsibility of the organization performing relevant work, and will need to conform to current laser safety standards, particularly for visible laser fault finders.

(Tier 1) Connector Inspection Procedures

Although not formally related to this standard, the IEC/ EN 61300-3-35 standard is commonly used as a reference for this activity
Procedures for eye safety are the responsibility of the organization performing relevant work, and will need to conform to current laser safety standards, particularly for microscopes.
