Precautions for using optic patch cable


Optical fiber jumper refers to the installation of connector plugs at both ends of the optical cable to realize the active connection of the optical path; a plug with one end is called a pigtail. So what do you need to pay attention to when using fiber optic jumpers? Today I will tell you about the precautions for using fiber optic jumpers.

  1. Be sure to protect the fiber connector with a protective sleeve after using the fiber jumper. Dust and oil will damage the coupling of the fiber. If the fiber connector is dirty, you can clean it with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol, otherwise it will affect the communication quality.

  2. Do not bend or loop the optical fiber excessively during use. This will increase the attenuation of light during transmission.

  3. Before use, wipe the ceramic ferrule and ferrule end face of the optical fiber with alcohol and absorbent cotton.

  4. The minimum bending radius of the fiber is not less than 150mm.

  5. Protect the ferrule and the end face of the ferrule to prevent injuries and pollution. Wear a dust cap in time after disassembly.

  6. In case of human or other force majeure damage, the damaged optical fiber jumper should be replaced in time.

  7. Do not look directly at the end face of the fiber when the laser signal is transmitted.

  8. Please read the manual carefully before installation, and install and debug under the guidance of the engineer of the manufacturer or dealer.

  9. Anomalies in the fiber optic network or system can be tested one by one using the troubleshooting method. When testing or troubleshooting the jumper, you can do the continuity test first. Usually, you can use a visible laser pointer to judge the entire optical fiber link. Or further use a precision optical fiber insertion loss return loss tester to test its various indicators. If the indicators are within the qualified range, the jumper indication is normal, otherwise it is unqualified.

  The above is an introduction to the precautions for using optical optic patch cable. I hope that everyone will be helpful after understanding the precautions for using optical optic patch cable.
