P1595 - Standard for Testing and Performance for Optical Phase Conductor (OPPC) for Use on Electrical Utility Power Lines
Project Details
This standard defines the performance, test requirements, procedures and acceptance criteria for a transmission line phase conductor with optical fibers commonly known as Optical Phase Conductor (OPPC). An OPPC cable has the dual performance functions of a current carrying phase conductor, cable or wire, with telecommunications capabilities. The OPPC cable is designed to be located primarily on overhead utility facilities This standard includes functional requirements such as electrical, mechanical, optical fiber, environmental and packaging; test requirements related to design, installation, in-service, maintenance, including routine tests. This standard is not intended to supersede any established safety rules, codes, regulations, or practices associated with the use of OPPC cables. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
