Fiber Installation Tools for Inspection

Date:15-08-2016

The practicality of communication that uses Fiber Installation Tools is nowadays wanted by a lot of people either for personal or business needs. This kind of cable allows the system to pass the signals in a bundle of glass conductors in faster speed over longer distances. However, due to the spun glass material used in making the conductors, these cable is limited by its light weight as well as frangibility. Therefore, in order to allow you to examine some problems in without causing damage to the conductor, there are several useful tools that you should provide. Here they are.

The first tool is fiber optic microscope. This is a high powered optical magnifier that delivers a lead, or pigtail. This certain feature allows you to examine the cable in place. Usually, the system produces its own illumination so you can take a look at the conductor closely to discover any chips, breaks or other malformations. Those are the most common causes of bad signal continuity or bad speed of passing data. This system is also usually able to magnify a cable target range from 200 to 1000 times depending on the quality and cost of the product.

The second tool will be digital continuity/tone source and detection units. This is a certain unit that is integrated with a fiber cable that works well in determining the signal efficiency. This unit works well by allowing the continuity unit in generating an internal signal from the end of the unit to the terminal point that is located at the end of the cable. At this certain point, the unit will automatically measure the signal that could be gained by the cable in amplitude (signal volume). Besides, this unit will also discover the electrical resistance throughout the length of the cable, so it could verify the efficiency of the cable as well.

The third tool is optical power measurement. This unit throws down light signal in high intensity through the length of fiber optical cable. It will work well in measuring the luminescent level form the test unit to a terminal point and back.

These are some great installation tools for inspection that will support fiber optic system of cabling. Just provide these tools to support your needs in examining problems or damage of your cable.
