What is Fusion Splicer

Post by poppycoachbags on Sat Dec 11, 2010 6:02 am

Welding is to connect two fusion splicer end to end with the thermal behavior. Our goal is integrated in such a way that together the two optical fiber, optical fiber through the scattered or reflected back without splicing, and splicing in the region and around almost like a virgin fiber itself powerful. Heat source is usually the arc, but can also be a laser or a gas flame, or tungsten wire, through which the current passes through.

Fusion splicing involves using localized heat to melt or fuse the ends of two optical fibers together. Fusion splicing process starts, writing the end of each fiber. Welding requires that all of the protective coating is removed at both ends of each fiber, a process called stripping. Cutting the fiber, and then use the method of scoring off so that its visual fault locator face is completely flat, perpendicular to the fiber axis. Each fiber end quality is checked with a microscope. In fusion, splice loss is a quality point of view and two fiber end has a direct role. The two end of the fiber alignment, and then together. The protected areas are either re-coated or bare fiber with a splice protector. It usually requires validation testing to ensure the splice is strong enough to survive handling, packaging and promotional use.

Basic welding device consists of two fibers on the fixtures are installed and the two electrodes. Inspection microscope assists in the preparation of completed fusion splicing fiber placement equipment. These fibers are placed in the instrument, alignment, and then together. Initially, the fusion as a heating element to melt or fuse fibers together with nickel-chromium alloy wire. The new fusion splicing techniques have replaced the carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, arc or gas flame heated nickel-chromium alloy wire fiber finish to make them together. In fusion splicing and the development of automated fusion splicing machine to make a small arc fusion splicer in the commercial application of one of the most popular splicing techniques.

Including the use of alternative splicing fiber optic connectors, or both have a high insertion loss, low reliability and a higher yield than the loss of the mechanical splice connector.
