EXFO Power Meter Calibration

Power Meter Calibration Introduction When it comes to calibration, it is not enough to state that an instrument complies with published specifications; it is necessary to be ready to prove it and to have a state-of-the-art system in place to monitor and preserve the quality of all calibrations. In 1998, EXFO decided to adopt the […]

Maintenance of FSM-11S SpliceMate Splicing Quality

Maintenance of Splicing Quality 1. Cleaning and Checking before Splicing Critical cleaning points and maintenance checks are described below . 1-1. Arc Power Calibration Refer to [Arc Calibration] (Page 42). 1-2. Cleaning V -grooves If contaminants are present in the V -grooves, proper clamping may not occur, resulting in higher splice loss. The V -grooves […]

Advantages Of Fiber Optics

Optical Fiber Advantage in telecommunication 1. Immunity to Electromagnetic Interference Although fiber optics can solve data communications problems, they are not needed everywhere. Most computer data goes over ordinary wires. Most data is sent over short distances at low speed. In ordinary environments, it is not practical to use fiber optics to transmit data between […]

Important tips for using fusion splicer

Read this before using the fusion splicer Fusion Splicer Setting Up 1. This fusion splicer performs an arc discharge. Do not use the splicer in a hazardous location in which inflammable gas can generate or only electrical apparatus for explosive gas atmosphere can be used. 2. Never use spray cleaners such as Freon or Flammable […]
