This DVD looks at a wide variety of fiber optic connectors and attenuators, terminators, military, and multi-pin connectors. Components are reviewed, as well as attenuation and reflectance specifications, mechanical/environmental requirements, tolerances, bonding, scribing, polishing, cleaning, inspection, and testing.

Topics:

  • The discrete parts of connectors, including plugs, receptacles/adapters, ferrules/termini, and alignment sleeves.

  • Optical and mechanical tolerances and their impact on optical performance.

  • Bonding, scribing, polishing, cleaning and visual inspection - an in-depth look at how to achieve the best possible performance from your connectors.

  • Specialty connectors such as multi-fiber connectors, military and aerospace connectors, attenuators, terminators, and loopback devices. The importance of yield, the actual loaded cost of a termination including the costs of components, consumables, and associated labor.
