QUESTION:

What are the typical steps for terminating a fiber?

 

ANSWER:

A typical fiber is “terminated” through the following steps:

  • Fiber is stripped and cleaned.
  • Epoxy is prepared and injected into a ferrule assembly (ferrule pressed into a ferrule-holder)

Ferrule (loaded with epoxy and fiber) is loaded into a Curing Oven for a period of time to cure the epoxy.
