Are crimping techniques an actual step by step that needs to be followed and does it make a difference if we are slightly inconsistent with part of the process?


During the fiber termination process, proper crimping techniques are critical to ensure you achieve a durable connection. In fact, once all termination steps are complete, the cable can be pulled without coming loose from the connector. Industry specifications – and possibly your customer’s requirements – specify the maximum pull force for each fiber optic cable assembly. (The maximum pull force is measured in Newtons, for example, “100 Newtons of pulling force.”)
