QUESTION:

How many options are there for troubleshooting why a connector failed?

 

ANSWER:

There are 4 diagnostic methods that can help to troubleshoot why a connector failed.  They are:

  • In-house optical diagnostic process and tools
  • X-ray inspection services
  • Sonar/ultrasonic inspection services
  • Cross-sectioning services

FOC uses the diagnostic method of cross-sectioning connectors. This technique enables us to actually look inside a fiber optic connector, see the defect, and pinpoint the cause of failure.
