Tips to Fusion Splice Your Fiber Optic Cable

Talking about splicing fiber optic cable, you will find two different types of splicing processes. Fusion splice will be the first type and the second one will be mechanical splicing. In this article, we are going to talk about fusion splicing since this is the most recommended type due to the less risk of insertion. Here are some tips in splicing your cable by using this certain method.
You have to notice first that fusion splicing is generally a bond of two or more optical fiber that joined together permanently by welding. You need to provide splice cleaver if you want to have less problems of light loss or reflection. Making such a poor spice causes the ends of the fiber could not melt together properly, and surely it could cause problems.
To begin splicing your cable, you can start to prepare the fiber first. Strip all the coatings, tubes, as well as jackets of your cable and make sure that you have only bare fiber left. Clean all of the filing gel from the fiber by using gel cleaner. Make sure that you are cleaning it well since clean environment will be great to support better connection.
Second, you can cleave the fiber. You need to provide a good cleaver to get an excellent splice. You can align the fibers either automatically or manually when you fusing the fibers together. It will be depended on the type of your machine. An electrical arc usually will melt the fibers together and it will create permanent welding for the two ends of the fibers.
Third, you can take heat shrink tubing to protect the fiber. It will be perfect to keep the optical fiber of your cable safe from any elements that might create breakage.
Now your cable has been spliced successfully. In order to get maximum splicing result, it will be better for you to provide some supporting tools in great quality. Therefore, you will not feel disappointed with the splicing result of the cable.
