1 Scope
The purpose of this part of lEC 61300 is to determine the ability of the cable attachment
element of the device under test to withstand torsional loads, while under tension, as might beexperienced during installation and normal service.The scope of the test also includes thoseelements designed for ribbon cables.

3 General description
The cable-to-device interface, while under a specified tension, is subjected to a torsional loador twisting action to determine the effects of this action on the physical and optical propertiesof the device.
Apparatus4.1 General
The test apparatus shall be capable of applying simultaneously both tension and a torsionalload or twisting action to the cable-to-device interface.Figures 1 and 2 show the basic partsof a test apparatus for component and closure test set-ups,respectively.
4.2Mounting fixture
Use a fixture to rigidly mount the device under test and hold it in proper alignment throughoutthe test.The fixture shall allow the device under test to be connected to an optical source anddetector for monitoring attenuation.
4.3Cable clamp
The cable clamp is the point at which the torsional load is applied.The cable clamp shall becapable of grasping and securing the cable so that it does not turn or slip in the holder whenloads are applied.The clamp shall not crush the optical fibres or cause a change in theattenuation.The cable clamp may consist of a mandrel around which several turns of cableare wrapped and secured.
4.4Weights
Weights or another mechanism for applying a tensile load to the cable clamp are required.Values of recommended loads are given in Table 1.
