Development of Optical Fibers, Cables and Optical Systems

Optical communication technology launched in the late 1970s has never stopped due to lack of development. Optical transmission technologies have been evolving consistently beginning from…

Tape Armoring of Fiber Optic Cables

Tape armoring is provided to ensure extra mechanical protection to the fiber optic cables. There are several types of tape materials that can be used for armor. Also, these tapes can be processed and applied in a variety of ways. We will see here a summary of tape armoring options, before that, let us see why tape armoring is preferable for some environments.

How Do You Decide the Type of Armoring for Optical Cables?

A cable design engineer, after reading the customer specification decides the construction details of an optical fiber cable. One of the important considerations he/she needs…

Type of Armoring used in Fiber Optic Cables

Unlike metallic power or copper communication cables, fiber optic cables have a unique distinction of having lightweight. One reason for the light-weight is the lack…

Visible Light Communication (VLC) or LiFi

As the terms indicate, Visible Light Communication (VLC) make use of visible light spectrum. VLC is used for data communications and uses visible light in…

Anti-Termite Additives in Sheathing and Jacketing Compounds

Though there are different solutions to achieve termite resistant, use of Bifenthrin as an active ingredient in the additive is common due to safety factors. Bifenthrin is an insecticide in the pyrethroid family. Pyrethroids are manmade versions of pyrethrins, which come from chrysanthemum flowers. Bifenthrin is used on various agricultural crops and in homes. Bifenthrin was first registered for use by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA).

Introducing Fiber Optic Systems for Overhead Transmission Lines

Overhead optical fiber cable systems have become a key factor in telecommunication networks used by operators and power utilities.

Basic of Fiber Optic Cable Distribution Products

Driven by requirements for high-speed data rate, the deployment of fiber optic has been growing. As the growth of installed fiber optic, the management of optical transmission networks becomes more difficult. Many factors should be considered during fiber optic cabling, like flexibility, future viability, cost of the deployment and management, etc

Introduction of Fiber Optic Cleaving

As we know, in most cases, when a fiber is used or spliced, it is essential to prepare clean ends. Cleaving, an essential step of making fiber ends clean, though it’s a simple mean, but it works surprisingly well, at least for standard glass fibers. Thus, I want to share something about the cleaving in this post today.
