In my former article, I remembered I have introduced one fiber optic termination tool kit, and it is the–Fiber Connector Termination Tool Kit FB-3601. Today I would like to make an explanation of its containers to help you in knowing the tools that used in our fiber optic termination procedure.
As we can see, our fiber connector termination tool kit FB-3601contains everything you’ll need to terminate standard epoxy and hand polish LC, SC, ST, FC, MU connectors. It includes connector heat oven, fiber stripper, fiber scribe tool, connector crimp tool, 400x connector inspection microscope, heat cure epoxy, Precision tweezers, polishing stuff, cleaning supplies and more. These kinds of products are really the basic construction of a fiber connector termination tool kit, let’s come to the functions of these products:
a. fiber stripper: Since stripping is the act of removing the protective polymer coating around optical fiber in preparation for fusion splicing, a good quality fiber stripper will safely and efficiently remove the outside jacket from an optical fiber cable, and can help you speed up the process of performing fiber network maintenance work and avoid excessive network downtime. Only with a properly strip of the fiber cable jacket can make an undamaged exposed fiber which is also a must for successful splicing of two optical fibers.
b. fiber scribe tool: Scribing optical fiber. A high quality fiber optic scribe may featuring with easy-to-use technique and minimum damage to the glass during the scribing process.
c. connector heat oven: It is always used for epoxy curing, providing heating to cure almost all kind of fiber optic connectors, such as FC, SC, LC, MU, MT, ST etc.
d. connector crimp tool: Fiber optic crimp tool is a tool designed to crimp or connect a connector to the end of a cable.
e. inspection microscope: Fiber inspection products which enable network technicians and other personnel to safely inspect fiber end-faces for contamination and verify the effectiveness of fiber cleaning procedures.
f. heat cure epoxy: Heat cure epoxy for fiber optic connectorization.
g. tweezers: Tweezers are tools used for picking up objects too small to be easily handled with the human hands.
h. fiber optic polishing supplies: They are specially used in fiber industry for polishing the end face of fiber optic product , which plays an important role in fiber optic installation.
i: fiber optic cleaning supplies: Optic cleaning products provide network technicians and other staff to safely and effectively clean fiber optic connectors, dramatically decreasing network outage and downtime. For even a single 1 micrometer dust particle can cause a big signal loss or even interrupt the communication.
Take all the above into consideration, a requirement of fiber optic termination tool kit is really important for the techniques in the fiber of optic installation and maintenance works.
