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.

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).

The MTP adapter technology of fiber optical module makes progress

At present, the MTP adapter technology of fiber optical module, which is independent research and development by China, achieves a new progress based on the original single transceiver module and reaches the domestic leading level.   The existing production of MTP adapter has been able to meet the needs of producing the fiber optic module of a variety of models and specification. And it has formed a certain capacity of mass production; the annual output reaches tens of thousands.   The MTP adapter production technology of fiber optical module uses the domestic equipments and raw materials to replace the expensive imported equipments and raw materials.   Each of the imported

What is the difference between indoor and outside cables

The difference between indoor cables and outside cables . Generally, outside cables are designed to resist water penetration by using a gell fill or dry water-blocking compounds and a polyethylene jacket.   The new dry cables are getting very popular, since they can be made as distribution types which are easier to terminate.   Many also have a PE jacket over a UL-rated PVC jacket so you can bring the cable into the building, strip off the outside jacket and run it anywhere in the building (not the 50 feet limit of PE.)   Indoor or premises cable must be rated for flame retardance for safety and to meet code.
