Fiber Closure Manufacturers Share Three Fiber Connections

  • June 6, 2019 2:51 AM EDT

    Today, Fiber Closure manufacturers share three common methods of connecting fiber:

    1. Fusion machine connection method. This method is used for cable breakpoint connections. The fiber cores are connected together using a fiber fusion splicer (single core splicing and ribbon fiber splicer). The advantage is that the joint loss is very small, mostly within 0.02 dB. Not easy to fail after welding. But the cost is higher.

    2. Use the coupler connection method after the manual end. Manual end-to-end (using a hand-polished head to make the head, then use a cold-stitched end and cut with a knife, then cold-weld to the end), then connect with a coupler. The advantage is lower cost, only the price of cold joints and extremely low labor costs. The disadvantage is that the attenuation is very large (especially manual grinding, but this method has been eliminated), the coupler must be used, it takes a long time, and it is not suitable for the outdoor end. Therefore, most of the clients for fiber access can now be used.

    3. After the fusion splicer is connected to the end, use the coupler connection method. This method is used for fiber patch cords. Use a fusion splicer to fuse the fiber to the jumper and then use the coupler and fiber jumper to jump to other jumpers or devices. The advantage is that it is convenient to maintain the dividing line. The disadvantage is that the attenuation is greater than the direct fiber splice connection. Mainly used in computer rooms, outdoor jumpers, etc.
