Fibre Tools and Equipment for Testing and Splicing

  • Course Overview


Fibre Optic cable requires using various mechanical tools and equipment that must adhere to standard parameters and settings, to assists the fibre-optic devices in the successful transmission of information from source to receiver. These tools and equipment also help to reduce signal loss and strengthen weak signals. This course begins with an explanation of various tools like Optical Time Domain Reflectometer, Visual Fault Locator, Optical Spectrum Analyzer, Optical Power Meter, Mechanical Cleavers, Mechanical Splicers and Optical Fusion Splicers and how they contribute in carrying out seamless transmission of information.
