Various tools are required for the installation and maintenance of networking products or its use in system integrators.  

Why are fiber optic tools important?

Tools are extremely important to install, maintain and troubleshoot networking products.   Fibre optic networks are extremely delicate and complex to install, maintain and troubleshoot.   Specific tools need to be used which are meant for a particular purpose to ensure fibre optic cables are not damaged and high performance is achieved. There are different procedures to be adapted in order to get effective results and it is imperative to understand these basic, but golden rules, in order to get the best results.

What are the different kinds of fiber optic tools for testing and installation?

Splicing Tools

There are fiber optics that need to be melted together, for which splicing tools are required.   There are different kinds of splicing tools for fiber optics that are available in the market.   They are heat oven, fiber splice protection sleeves, fusion splice, optic lever and many others. Mechanical and fusion splicing are the two kinds of splicing that can be done.   Two fiber ends of an optic cable are held together in order to have light pass from one fiber to another. This kind of process is managed by mechanical tools.   In fusion splicing, glass ends of a fiber are fused or welded together to ensure that there is a continuous connection and very little light is lost

Fiber Inspection or Fiber Tools

Fiber tools are used for the production and troubleshooting of fiber optics, to ensure that they work continuously and effectively.   There are various aspects of a cable that can be tested; the amount of power that is being transmitted, breakages and any other aspect that needs to be checked.   There are different kinds of inspection tools that can be used and some of them are faulty locators and optical identifiers.

Cleaning Tools

In order to transmit light without any obstruction, it is important to ensure that the fiber cables are free from dust, dirt, oil and other constraints.   The main areas that require cleaning are connectors and ferrules.   No cables should be touched with bare or naked hands, in order to avoid contamination and damaging of the cables.   Alcohol and wipes are the best materials to be used for cleaning.

The various kinds of Fibre Optic Tools offered by 3C3 and their uses:

Splicing Machines

Splicing Machines like OFS-108, OFS-109 and Fiber Splicing Tool Kits are used for high speed fiber fusion.

Fiber Strippers and Fiber Jacket Strippers

These tools are used to remove the jacketing, from 1.6 mm to 3.0 mm. The coating is stripped to expose the fiber cladding.

Cutters

There are two kinds of Cutters – Fiber Cable Yarn Cutters and Fiber Tubing Cutters. Cutters are used to cut the members inside the Fiber Jackets and the Metal Central Tube.

Fiber Optic Adapters

They are used to join two fiber optic patch cables together and come with superior low loss performances and high repeatability.

Slitters

3C3 offers Universal Round Fiber Cable Slitters, Armored Cable Slitters and Longitudinal Cable Sheath Slitters and is used for jacket removal of PE, PVC and Rubber.

High Precision Cleavers

They are used to cleave fibers quickly, easily and effectively and are a perfect aid to any field splicing systems.
