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