Fusion Splicer: A Good Helper for Fiber Optic Splicing

As fiber deployment has become mainstream, splicing has naturally crossed from the outside plant (OSP) world into the enterprise and even the data center environment. Fusion splicing involves the use of localized heat to melt together or fuse the ends of two optical fibers. The preparation process involves removing the protective coating from each fiber, precise cleaving, and inspection of the fiber end-faces. Fusion splicing has been around for several decades, and it’s a trusted method for per

Fiber Cleaver – Key to Quality Connectors and Splices

In the field of fiber optics, it is very necessary to use fiber optic cables with clean and smooth end face. The fiber optic cleaver is a crucial tools for low-loss and low-reflectance fiber optic splices or terminations, especially when using the pre-polished connectors with internal splices. The fiber cleaver usually work in conjunction with fusion splicers to do optimum splicing jobs, and is the key to quality connectors and splices. What Is Cleaving and Fiber Cleaver? Cleaving is the pro

Why Do You Need OTDR Launch Box?

Why Do You Need OTDR Launch Box? Optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) is a necessary fiber optic testing tool which use light backscattering technologies to analyze the optical fiber performance. It can test the light loss and locate the breaks, splices and connectors in fiber optic network. However, OTDR has "dead zone" which can affect the testing result if proper measure is not taken. To overcome the limitation of OTDR dead zone, OTDR launch box is bei

Test Optical Splitters Loss With Optical Power Meter & Light Source

Test Optical Splitters Loss With Optical Power Meter & Light Source Optical splitters are usually used in passive optical networks (PONs) to distribute fiber to individual homes or businesses. There is something different between testing an optical splitter and a patch cable although both of them use optical power meter and light source to test. In this tutorial, we are going to talk about optical splitter loss testing with optical power meter and light source.

How to Use a One-Push Cleaner?

How to Use a One-Push Cleaner? With the deployment of 40G and 100G systems in the data center, reliable and efficient fiber installations are critical to the high performance network. Dirt, dust and other contaminants are the enemies of high-speed data transmission over optical fiber. Hence, it is critical that all optical connections are free of contaminants to avoid performance issue. Ideally, a properly maintained and cleaned fiber optic cable will help reduce contaminant
