Fiber Optic Box Connector Special Types


The fiber optic box connector design listed above is very basic. There are industries that require special connector designs though. One design is identified as the subminiature Type A or SMA. This is one that highlights the ostensible screw-on mechanism. This kind of connector has different designs, for instance, some with straight screw connectors while others with smaller connection mechanisms found on either ends of the connector.

An additional kind of connector for fiber optic boxs is recognized as the straight-tip or ST connector. This one depends on a bayonet mount lock, a flexible link that can either be separated then refastened with much ease. Of course, the square connector or SC is also highly chosen especially because it prevents crossing of fibers during installation. This one is easily discernible to the user as it has a square tip.

Clean the fiber optic boxs

When cleaning the various parts you should take care that you don't allow the cleaning alcohol to evaporate off the ferrule. This is to prevent having a residual material on the fiber core and cladding. If you let the alcohol evaporate you will have a difficult time removing the cladding. In most cases you will be forced to use the wet cleaning method which as mentioned above, can easily result in damage of the different parts.

When cleaning the different parts take caution that you don't touch the parts. In addition to leaving marks on the parts thus making it difficult for you to clean the box, you also risk collecting harmful glasses that might injure you.
