12. One of the problems that has slowed down the practical
implementation of fibre optic technology and that has
essentially put up a road block is the connecting of two
fibre optic cables. With this new system GlobalInvacom is
incorporating a much easier method that doesn't involve high-
priced splicing machines. The picture shows how the core of the
optical cable is cut with this device such that a flat and lossless
edge results. The optical cables need to be connected edge
to edge. In order to actually achieve a true flat edge, the best
method is the effective breaking of the optical cable.
13. The connector plugs are placed in this holder and the ends
of the fibre optic cables can be inserted through the template
easily and securely.
14. A push on the ends locks the flaps. The inner conductor of
the optical cable is then tightly pressed and the two cable ends
touch each other without any loss (nearly).
15. The complete set with the cable cutter (actually, cable
breaker), the connection template and a set of plugs. The small
yellow section of fibre optic cable shows the two types of plugs:
One with a pre fitted connector for customer connection and the
second to splice bare fibres together.
