When should I use and OTDR rather than a power meter and laser source?2013-08-18T02:38:08+00:00

Whenever a fiber is installed an OTDR shot should be taken to create a benchmark of the fibers los over distance characteristics.  Additionally, anytime you are looking to locate an event which is causing loss in your network you need to use an OTDR to see the distance to the event.  A power meter will simply tell you the cumulative loss of the span.

What is the difference between a Core Alignment and Cladding Alignment Fusion Splicer?2013-08-18T02:35:44+00:00

Fusion splicing is the act of joining two optical fibers end-to-end using heat. The goal is to fuse the two fibers together in such a way that light passing through the fibers is not scattered or reflected back by the splice, and so that the splice and the region surrounding it are almost as strong as the fiber itself. The core alignment fusion splicers actually align the fiber’s core , or center most silica where light actually travels along the fiber’s path.  Cladding alignment fusion splicers only align the outer most silica of the fiber and rely on the manufacturing processes taken when the fiber was extruded to create the likeliness that the fibers cores are both centralized on the cladding and with therefore align correctly when spliced.

Where should I purchase PRO products2018-10-30T16:27:41+00:00

Precision Rated Optics has partnered with several of the industry’s leading resellers and we are proud to work with the companies to support our customer’s needs for credit terms and availability of products. If you are interested in a PRO product we would encourage you to work with one of these partners to complete your purchase.
