IEC 61753-091-02:2022 contains the minimum test and measurement requirements and severities which a fibre optic circulator as specified by IEC 62077 is expected to satisfy in order to be categorized as meeting the requirements of circulators used in controlled environments as specified in IEC 61753-1:2018 and IEC 61753-1:2018/AMD1:2020. The requirements cover non-connectorized single-mode fibre 3-port incompletely circulated type optical circulators for category C used in controlled environments.
This first edition cancels and replaces IEC 61753-091-2 published in 2012. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to IEC 61753-091-2:
a) change of title adding the 3-port incompletely circulated type;
b) harmonization of terms and definitions with those in IEC 61977 and IEC TS 62627-09;
c) harmonization of test items and their conditions with IEC 61753-1:2018 and IEC 61753-1:2018/AMD1:2020.
