Fiber Closure Manufacturers Share How To Properly Install Fiber Optic Quick Connectors

Date:04-07-2019

The most troublesome part of fiber optics is that it is fragile, and a slight squeeze or bend signal is broken. The fiber optic connector is the fiber optic line and the optical cat connector, which is not as durable as the old telephone line connector we used before. The fiber optic quick connector is easily damaged and requires a $100 maintenance fee for each replacement. In fact, a friend with better hands-on ability can try to make a connector by himself, and the cost of replacement can be greatly reduced. Below, the Fiber Closure manufacturer will tell you how to install a fiber optic quick connector.

The installation of optical fiber quick connector is divided into a hot connection and cold connection. The hot melt needs hot melt machine and high technical control is not very suitable for laymen. Here I introduce to you the cold connection method. We only need a fiber-optic cutting machine. Many great gods can only connect the connector with needle-nosed pliers. It is not recommended to use this high-tech method.

The first step is to prepare the tool. We will prepare the prepared cutter and quick connector, open the previous connector and see if the embedded fiber is broken inside. If the fiber is not broken inside, we just need to carefully remove the fiber, then put the newly made fiber head into it, and put it on the bite cover. In most cases, the fiber pre-embedded wire is broken inside the connector. This is the connector that can no longer be reused and needs to be replaced with a new one.

The second step is to make the adapter. Let's first look at the construction of the connector: a blue outer casing with a cable gland on the black fiber optic chiller and a screw cap at the end. After knowing the construction of the fiber optic connector, let's make the fiber optic connector. Pull the fiber out of the skin and notice that the fiber line cannot be bent, otherwise, it will not be used. After the skin is removed, we will screw the cap over the fiber optic fiber and leave it behind.

Strip the outer skin of the fiber a piece of bare wire larger than 22 mm, because we will use a 22 mm fiber head in a while. After stripping, we must use a fiber-cutting machine here, which is not expensive and easy to buy. The fiber tip is placed on the cutter to cut more than 22 mm. After the above steps, a standard fiber optic connector is ready.

The third step is to connect the adapter and the fiber. The fiber tip is inserted into the hole in the back of the connector, and the depth of insertion is a slight degree of bending of the fiber. Do not use too much force when inserting, so as not to break. Next, cover the cover of the quick connector to fix the fiber connector, and then screw the screw cap of the fiber quick connector to fix it.

The installation steps of the fiber optic quick connector are not complicated, but the technical requirements for the installer are high. Fiber optic requirements for cleanliness are high, and if it is dirty during installation, there will be a malfunction or interruption. On the Internet, it is not feasible to see a friend using a fingernail to strip and cut the thread. This will cause the fiber to be stained. If the fiber optic quick connector you're making doesn't work, it's probably because the fiber is dirty or broken during the installation process.
