This part of IEC 61300 specifies the procedure to measure the withdrawal force between the ferrule (gauge pin) of the plug connector and the resilient alignment sleeve of the adapter. The gauge pin should have the same shape (chamfer) like the normal ferrules described in the optical interface, see IEC 61755-3 series and IEC 61754 series. This measurement procedure is applicable to single-fibre cylindrical ferrule optical connectors. The products of the standard series IEC 61754 (Fibre optic connector interfaces) are used together with the standards of the series IEC 61755 (Optical interface) and IEC 61753 (Performance standard) as well as tested by the standards of the series IEC 61300 (Basic test and measurement procedures). The standard is directed at manufacturers, testing institutes and users. The responsible committee is Subcommittee DKE/UK 412.7 "LWL-Verbindungstechnik und passive optische Komponenten" ("Fibre optic interconnecting devices and passive optical components") of the DKE (German Commission for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies) at DIN and VDE.
