The Information about New Fiber optic Installation Standard

An installation standard for optical cable didn't exist until a little more than a year ago. Certainly the National Electrical Code (NEC) has been covering optical cable for longer than that, but the NEC requirements cover fire safety, installation with electrical conductors, and not a whole lot more. The primary installation note in Article 770 is in 770-8, where the NEC says that the work must be done in "a neat and workmanlike manner." But what exactly is a neat and workmanlike manner? The new fiber installation standard defines that term-and much more.

The proper name of the standard is ANSI/NEIS 301, and it was developed as a joint venture of the National Electrical Contractors Association, (NECA), Bethesda, Md., and the Fiber Optic Association. It's part of the ANSI's (American National Standards Institute) National Electrical Installation Standards program. It was approved and published in late 1998.

The general section of the standard describes "procedures for installing, testing, and commissioning of systems that use fiber- optic cables and related components to carry signals for telecommunications, control, and similar purposes."

The intent of the standard is to define "a minimum level of quality for fiber-optic cable installations."
