Critical Areas in the Cable Prep STEP

  • Tool Selection: Any damage to the fiber during stripping, such as nicks caused by contact with the stripping tool blades, can significantly increase chances of fiber breaking within the connector.
  • Epoxy Solutions: Error in epoxy processes (mixing, application, and curing schedule) can lead to bond failures and negatively impact long term reliability.
  • Cleaning Options: Improper cleaning of the fiber prior to termination, can result in poor fiber-to-ferrule bond, allowing for fiber movement within the ferrule over time, degrading product performance.
