The widespread use of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) facilitates the rise of the fiber optic fast connector, it is small in size and fast terminating, and are less expensive and have high stability, which is indispensable optical fiber connection device.
The fiber optic fast connector is a highly innovative field termination connector that includes factory-installed fiber, pre-cast ceramic ferrule, and a mechanical connection mechanism. The introduction of fiber or indoor fiber inserted into the mechanical connection mechanism can be, without the help of other tools, termination process as long as 2 minutes or so, greatly saving the installation time. Fiber optic fast connectors on the market today can be terminated with single-mode fiber and multimode fiber with diameters of 250 μm, 900 μm, 2.0 mm and 3.0 mm.
Continued stability Good insertion loss Small use of very low installation speed Very fast installation and maintenance is very simple.
Fiber Optic Communications Applications Fiber to the home (FTTH) applications Cable applications.
Although the use of fiber optic quick connector / cold connector is very simple, the installation must follow the correct steps, in general, fiber optic quick connector / cold connector installation process is as follows:
1. Prepare fiber optic quick connector, fiber stripping pliers, fiber cutting knife, fiber cleaning tools;
2. To wear the cable connector cable tail sets;
3. Remove the outer sheath of the cable with a fiber stripper, clean the fiber, and cut the bare fiber with a fiber cutting knife. The length of the bare fiber is reserved according to the specific situation.
4. Insert the fiber into the fiber optic quick connector;
5. Press the gland, lock the fiber;
6. Put the fiber optic quick connector on the tail cover.
In the installation process, should note the following:
The fiber optic quick connector is highly susceptible to contamination and should be kept away from dust and contaminants. The results of fiber cutting have a significant impact on the performance of fiber fast connectors / cold connectors. It is best to use automatic fiber cutting Knife to get the best cutting effect When inserting fiber into the fiber optic quick connector / cold connector, it should be slowly inserted to prevent damage to the fiber, resulting in poor transmission performance of the fiber in the fiber fast connector / Do not remove the dust cover before it is important to choose a high-quality fiber refractive index matching solution that greatly extends the service life of the fiber optic quick connector.
Fiber optic quick connector / cold connector operation is quick and easy, the connection cost is low, and the real access to anytime and anywhere, which will play an irreplaceable role in fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) access network.
