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.

What is the cost of the fiber optic cable per foot

What is the cost of the fiber optic cable per foot ? Generally, the fiber optic cable types can be divided into the outdoor fiber optic cable and the indoor fiber optic cable. Due to the different production, materials and the type, the cost of fiber optic cable per foot is different.   Many small manufacturers sell the very low price fiber optic cables. Actually, these cables have a very poor quality. The key to purchase the high-quality and low-price fiber optic cable is the find a reputable manufacturer which is willing to long-term cooperation.     For example, we are able to offer the relatively low price and high quality fiber optic cable. We have cooperated with many

How to connect fiber optic cable

How to connect fiber optic cable ? There are three methods for connecting the fiber optic cable including the permanent connection, emergency connection and the active connection.   The permanent connection (also called hot melt) refers to melt the connection point of the fibers and then connect the fibers by the discharge method. The permanent connection is usually used in the long-distance connection, permanent or semi-permanent fixed connection.     The emergency connection is also called cold fusion. The emergency connection mainly fixes and stuck two fibers together by mechanical and chemical methods. The main characteristic of this method is quick and reliable.
