The function of OTDR

An OTDR (Optical Time Domain Reflectometer) is used in fiber optics to measure the time and intensity of the light reflected on an optical fiber.

 

An OTDR can detect such light loss and pinpoint trouble areas, making repairs easy. The more quickly trouble areas are identified and addressed, the less your fiber optic network will suffer from data transfer problems. More to the point, it is used as a troubleshooting device to find faults, splices, and bends in fiber optic cables, with an eye toward identifying light loss. Light loss is especially important in fiber optic cables because it can interfere with the transmission of data.

 

The OTDR is not perfect, of course. Critics charge that it can produce inaccurate results if two trouble spots are very close together or if the pulse has a long travel length. Experts also urge training in order to interpret the data correctly. Another factor is the relatively high price for a device that might be used only sparingly.

 

Proponents, however, counter that being able to pinpoint and address light loss points is well worth the price, both for the OTDR device and for the training needed to operate and properly understand the data that that OTDR records.

A brief introduction of the optical fiber terminal box

The o ptical fiber terminal box adopts the design of high density and large capacity. It has a nice appearance and it has the features that are reasonable distribution, easy to find, easy to manage, easy to install and good operability. The optical fiber terminal box can be divided into: 1x8, 1x12, 1x24 and 1x48 optical fiber terminal box.

The manufacturing process of the optical cable

The manufacturing process of fiber optical cable generally includes:   Firstly , is the selection of fiber optical cable. We should choose the fiber with excellent feature of transmission and the qualified tension.   Secondly , we dye the fiber. We identify the fiber cable with the standard chromatography. And the fiber cable must be not fade and migration in high temperature.   Thirdly is the secondary extrusion. We use the plastic with high elastic modules and low coefficient of linear expansion and extrude it into the pipe with a certain size.And we fill the fiber and the moisture-proof and waterproof gel into the pipe. Then we store it a few days (not less than two day).
