Generally speaking, fiber optic patch cord is a transmission medium used between devices. For example, the signal interface of device A is A1, and the signal interface of device B is B1.
Then to connect two devices, you need to have an optical fiber. The interface of one section of this optical fiber is the A1 head, and the other section of the interface is the B1 head, so that the two devices can be connected together. This kind of fiber has an adapter (connector) at both ends. ) is called a jumper. By the way, a fiber with an adapter at one end is called a pigtail.
Fiber optic patch cord are widely used in: communication room, fiber-to-the-home, local area network, optical fiber sensor, optical fiber communication system, optical fiber connection transmission equipment, national defense combat readiness, etc. It is suitable for cable television network, telecommunication network, computer optical fiber network and optical test equipment.
Many people are very interested in the production process of fiber optic patch cords. What equipment is needed to produce fiber optic patch cords? What are the most important ones? Even though the fiber optic patch cord is so small, two heads are one line, in fact, the production process requirements are quite complicated.
The main needs are: grinder, end face inspector, curing oven, insertion return loss tester, ferrule crimping machine, tail shank crimping machine, glue dispenser.
According to the production capacity, if the production capacity is large, it needs to be equipped with a cable cutting machine and multiple grinding machines. Others include:
1. Tools: optical cable stripping pliers, industrial alcohol, alcohol pump, special paper towels, blades, sandpaper, curing discs, grinding discs (various specifications) grinding discs, etc.
2. Equipment categories: curing furnace, end inspection instrument (with display), insertion return loss tester, crimping machine (for fixing aramid fiber), and glue dispenser. If the product has 3D requirements, a 3D detector and an air compressor are also required.
3. Inspection: ferrule insertion force tester, vernier caliper, pass and stop gauge, meter ruler, connector tension tester (you can make your own, buy weights), high and low temperature boxes, and a lot of numbers.
