This first fibre optic termination method we’re going to explore is pigtail splicing. This is a commonly used fibre splicing technique. A pigtail is a piece of cable with one or multiple factory-polished connectors at one at end bare fibre on the other.
To complete this termination method, the installer will first need to secure and route the fibre-optic and pigtail cable in a splice tray. Then the bare end of the cable is spliced to field fibre. Once this is complete, the splice is routed into the splice tray which is then installed into the hardware.
To perform this type of fibre optic termination method, the installer needs a high level of experience. This method will also require the use of a fusion splicer and cleaver.
The final method of fibre-optic termination we’re going to explore is using an epoxy-and-polish (EP) connector. This semi-complex termination method can take up to 5 minutes and will require an EP tool kit.
To perform termination through an EP connector, epoxy is inserted into the connector ferrule. The field fibre is then stripped and cleaned. If the connector is anaerobic, the bare fibre is painted with an activator and inserted into the connector. If it is a heat-cure connector, fibre is inserted into the connector and placed in an oven for the epoxy to cure. Once cured, the fibre stub above the ferrule is removed. The final step is to polish the end face of the connector using polishing films.
Whatever termination method you choose, an important factor to consider is the process being followed in accordance with industry standards. To successfully terminate a fibre optic cable, you should employ a certified and experienced installer. This is what the team at CableNet Industries can provide.
