IEC 61753-071-02:2020 contains the minimum initial test and measurement requirements and severities which non-connectorized single-mode fibre optic 1 × 2 and 2 × 2 spatial switches need to satisfy in order to be categorized as meeting the requirements of category C – controlled environments, as defined in Annex A of IEC 61753-1:2018. This first edition cancels and replaces IEC 61753-071-2 published in 2014. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to IEC 61753-071-2:2014.
a) addition of performance requirements of repeatability and switching durability;
b) deleting of performance requirements of directivity;
c) deleting of test of operational shock;
d) change of performance requirements of switching time;
e) change of test condition of high optical power;
f) harmonization of the test conditions with IEC 61753-1:2018.
