Fiber Closure Manufacturers Share 3 Common Fiber Optic Connector Issues


Regarding optical fiber, we will encounter many problems in the process of using it. Today, Fiber Closure manufacturers will sort out several common problems and ways to solve them.

1. Q: What is a fiber optic connector?

A: The fiber optic connector is used to connect the fiber that requires the connect/disconnect function. The basic connector unit is a connector assembly. The connector assembly consists of one adapter and two connector plugs. Since polishing and fine-tuning may occur during the manufacture of the optical connector, the connector is typically assembled to the fiber in the manufacturer's manufacturing facility. However, the assembly and polishing operations involved can be performed in the field, for example, to bring the jumper to a certain size.

2. Q: Where is the fiber optic connector used?

A: Fiber optic connectors are used in the telephone office's central office, in customer premises installations, and outdoor equipment applications to connect equipment and cables, or to cross-connect cables in the system.

3. Q: What is the structure of the fiber optic connector?

A: Most fiber optic connectors are spring-loaded. Press the fiber ends of the two connectors together so that the glass is in direct contact with the glass or plastic and plastic. This avoids the inclusion of an air layer between the two fibers, which increases the insertion loss and reflection loss of the connector.
