QUESTION:       

After crimping, is the cable assembly able to withstand the pulling that occurs during final production and installation?

ANSWER:

When properly crimped, the cable assembly has the strength to withstand a reasonable amount of pulling that occurs during the final production stages and installation.

Even after installation, the cable assembly may need to withstand a certain amount of mechanical forces. For example, a dense rack may have multiple fibers bundled with Velcro®, hanging out of a cabinet – the force of the complete bundle is distributed over all the connectors. Proper crimping ensures that force is transferred to the connector, not the delicate glass fiber.
