Des outils sont requis pour assembler les connecteurs et les fibres optiques. Un grand choix de kits a été conçu pour application de terrain afin de simplifier la configuration des fibres optiques sur place.
Tools to assemble optical fibers and cables with a large selection of connectors
The most diverse tools are needed for the assembly of optical fibers and cables. We can offer the right tools for almost any job. In addition to fiber strippers and crimp tools, we can also offer polishing holders for all common connector types.
Fiber termination kits are available for both a so called cleave assembly and a standard assembly using adhesives and a polishing technique.
The kit produced by our partner Tempo consists of all tools and consumables necessary for the assembly of standard fiber connectors using adhesives and a polishing technique. In addition to cable strippers and Kevlar® scissors used in the preparation of cables, this kit also has a crimping tool used to crimp connectors to fiber cables. With the universal fiber stripper the fibers can be prepared for assembly.
All consumables such as adhesives and polishing foils required for assembly have been integrated into the kit. With an inspection microscope the finished connectors can undergo final inspection.
In fiber assembling, assembly times play an important role. Because of their design, Silica/Hard Clad fibers make the simple and reliable assembly of connectors possible. The cleave technology, developed especially for these fibers, combines simple, inexpensive connector assembly with robust, standardized connector systems. The assembly of an SMA or ST connector can be done within 2-3 minutes and V-PIN connectors can even be assembled in less than one minute.
All necessary tools for the assembling of the corresponding connector systems are contained in the termination kits. The outer jacket of the cable is initially taken off with the cable stripper. The buffer of the fiber is then removed with the fiber stripper. Now the connectors have to be clamped or crimped to the cable. The use of adhesive is unnecessary. As a final step, the fiber sticking out of the connector is scratched and broken with a diamond fiber cleaver in one move.
The diamond cleaver scratches the fiber under tension causing the fiber to break. After the fiber is broken, tension eases and the fiber slides a few micrometers back into the ferrule. In this way, the "recessed" fiber is protected from damage.
