TIA Issues A New FOTP-231 IEC 61315
The TIA actively seeks participation in these projects from the user and general interest communities.
The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), which develops standards for the information and communications technology industry, has released a new document, TIA-455-231 FOTP-231 IEC 61315 – Calibration of Fibre-Optic Power Meters.
TIA-455-231specifies requirements for this international standard which is applicable to instruments measuring radiant power emitted from sources which are typical for the fibre-optic communications industry. These sources include laser diodes, light emitting diodes (LEDs) and fibre-type sources. The radiation may be divergent or collimated. It also describes the calibration of power meters to be performed by calibration laboratories or by power meter manufacturers.
TIA-455-231was formulated under the cognizance of the TIA TR-42 Telecommunications Cabling Systems, TR-42.13 Passive Optical Devices and Fiber Optic Metrology subcommittee.
For more information about TR-42 and how to participate in standards development with TIA, contact Germaine Palangdao at firstname.lastname@example.org.
