EIA-455-41
The intent of this test is to determine the ability of a fiber optic cable to mechanically and optically withstand, or recover from (or both), the effects of a slowly-applied compressive force. The following parameters may be measured or observed: the number of fibers broken during the compressive loading,
the changes in optical transmittance or attenuation during or after the loading, any change in the outer covering.
