IEC 61300-2-10:2021 evaluates the effect of loads which is possible to occur when fibre optic devices are exposed to critical situations such as being stepped on, being run over by vehicle tyres, when an evenly-distributed static load is applied to the top surface of a street cabinet or when a load is applied to a street cabinet's open door. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2012. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- addition of testing an evenly distributed static load applied on the top surface of a street cabinet;
- addition of testing a static load applied to a street cabinet door;
- addition of descriptions to perform the test at a specified temperature other as specified in the standard atmospheric conditions and addition of test temperature(s) in Table 1;
- update of the severities according to IEC 61753-1:2018.
