OPTICAL FIBER CABLE TESTING COMMISSIONING AND QUALITY CONTROL

QUALITY CONTROL


General

Type sample and routine tests shall be undertaken on non metallic underground fibre optic cable, all fittings & accessories and the optical fibres in a accordance with the requirements of this specification, CCITT G652, IEC 793 and IEC 794 as appropriate. Contract drawings previously submitted to the Engineer shall be available at the time of testing.

The contractor / supplier shall give the Engineer the requisite period of notice prior to undertaking the tests and shall submit to the Engineer a test program and procedures for approval. This is a Hold point.

Optical Fibers

Optical fibres shall be tested in accordance with the requirements of CCITT |G652 and IEC 793 as appropriate.
Optical Joint Boxes
Optical joint boxes shall be visually inspected to ensure they meet the specified requirement. If the external housing or its door show any signs of distortion than the box shall be rejected. Details of the inspection shall be recorded and shall be made available to the Engineer upon request.

 Non-metallic Underground Fibre Optic Cable

Non-metallic underground fibre optic cable and the optical shall be tested in accordance with the requirements of CCIT G652, IFC 793 and IFC 794 as appropriate.

 Fibre Optic Cables

All fibre optic cables shall be tested prior to dispatch using an OTDR on each fibre.

Test Certificates

Test records covering Type and Sample tests shall be made available to the Engineer.

Certificates of Conformity

When requested copies of the following certificates / records shall also be forwarded:

·         Optical joint boxes visual inspection records.
·         Routine test records
·         The records of the OTDR test results.



 Factory Acceptance Teats

In case the FOC’s and fittings are a significant portion of the Contract the Employer reserves the right to attend Routine tests at works of the supplier. The Bidder shall include in its bid, all costs (airfares accommodation etc.) associated with two members of the Employer’s staff ant the Employer’s Representative, if applicable attending and witnessing the above factory acceptance tests.

TESTING AN COMMISSIONING


General

The contractor shall provide details of all proposed type, routine, sample, pre-commissioning and commissioning tests to be carried out each FOC cable type, for each drum of cable delivered and each FOC link installed as appropriate.

Routine Test of Materials

The Contractor shall provide test certificates for routine tests which are performed to ensure basic materials meet the requirements of the FOC Types.

Sample Test of Cable

Contractors shall provide test certificates of sample tests which are performed on each drum of cable manufactured. Such certificates shall include as a minimum:

·         Mode diameter on each fibre
·         Cut-off wave length on each fibre
·         Optical Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) scan results for               each fibre at the  system wave length.

Routine Test Cable

Contractors shall provide test certificates of routine tests which are performed on each cable Batch manufactured. The routine test shall include as a minimum:

·         Water immersion / penetration tests for all FOC type.
·         Cable tensile strength tests for all FOC type.
·         Repeat bending performance test for all FOC type.
·         Fibre strain test for all FOC type.
·         Cladding diameter measurement for all fibres on all                   FOC type.
·         Mode field concentricity error measurement on all fibre            on all FOC type.
