What Is A Fiber Fusion Splice Box?

An optical fiber fusion splicer is a device that uses an electric arc to fuse two optical fibers together at their end faces to form a single long optical fiber. The final connector or connectors permanently connect the two glass fibers end-to-end, so the optical signal can be transmitted from one fiber to the other with almost no loss.

Before successfully splicing the fiber, the fiber jacket and polymer coating must be carefully stripped, thoroughly cleaned, and then accurately separated to form a smooth vertical end face. After all this is done, place each fiber in the holder of the splice housing. From this point, the fiber fusion splicer will take over the rest of the process, including three steps:

Alignment: The fusion splicer uses a small and precise motor to fine-tune the position of the fiber until it is properly aligned, so that the final fusion splicing will be as seamless as possible without attenuation. During the alignment process, fiber optic technicians can check fiber alignment due to the magnification of optical power meters, cameras, or viewing mirrors.

Removal of impurities: Since very little dust or other impurities can seriously damage the optical signal transmission ability of the connector, do not over clean it when soldering. Even if the fiber is manually cleaned before it is inserted into the splice device, many splicers still take an extra precautionary cleaning step in the process: before splicing, they create small sparks between the ends of the fiber, To burn off any residual dust or moisture.

Fusion: After the fibers are properly positioned and all remaining moisture and dust are burned off, the ends of the fibers should be fused together to form a permanent joint. The fusion splicer emits a large second spark that melts the end face of the fiber without extending the cladding of the fiber with the molten glass core. Loss is minimized). The molten fiber tips are then joined together to form the final welded joint. Then perform an estimated splice loss test. Typical fiber loss for most fiber fusion splices is 0.1 dB or less.
