Fiber Optic Cable Connectors – Connectors for Cables

Fiber cables are strong and fast for efficient communication and transmission of data. They are unique because they transmit light instead of electrical signals, so the terminations are required to be more accurate. An optic fiber connector aligns microscopic glass fibers perfectly to allow for communication without disruption and has similar design feature. Better connectors lose very little light because…

Why Should We Keep Fiber Optic Connectors Clean?

Fiber optic technicians are aware that dirty connections can cause attenuation, but they may not realize that it can also cause bit errors or slowdown of the network. Therefore, keeping the fiber optic connector end-faces clean is one of the most overlooked aspects of fiber optic maintenance and troubleshooting. Today’s article will describe the detailed information about how dirty fiber…

Guide to Fiber Optical Connectors

Fiber optical cable is the composite material, typically consists of a hair-thin glass used to transmit pulses of light instead of electrical signals. Thus the termination must be much more precise. Compared with copper cables end with RJ connectors, fiber optic connectors must align microscopic glass fibers perfectly to make metal to metal contact. There are many different types of…

How to Clean Fiber Optic Connector

To keep the proper operation of the equipment, regular cleaning and maintenance are fundamental. Fiber optic connector as an indispensable component of an optical network is typically connected with a fiber jumper, then plugs into a switch or router. Telecommunication experts study that cleaning fiber optic connector is one of the most important preventative maintenance procedures to avoid premature failure…
