Abstract
The measurement of optical fiber's mechanical attributes is drawing more focus as deployment of fiber transitions from long-haul applications to those in today's local loop and data networks. Testing was conducted to further the understanding of the impact of environmental preconditioning factors on mechanical test result precision. This investigation, using test samples of 250 micron U.V. curable acrylate-coated optical fibers, primarily focused within and about the constraints for relative humidity as specified in the standard test methods. Differences in some mechanical test results are shown to correlate with different levels in the relative humidity of the environment in which the fibers were conditioned for 24 hours.
