ST Connector

Utilize a bayonet style mating concept to provide a secure, robust coupling mechanism.
The enclosed spiral slotted coupling nut allows easy insertion in densely packed patch
panels. The ST connector has been used extensively in telecom, data and premise
installation applications and could easily be considered a de facto standard.

LC Connector

These connectors utilize the familiar RJ-45 style latching mechanism. As a small form
factor (SFF) connector, the LC connector is almost half the size of the popular SC
connector. With accelerated growth demanding greater bandwidth in less physical
space, LC connectors have emerged as a viable solution for high density frames and
patch panels.

The following is the simple inner structure for the two kinds of Hand Held Fiber
Microscope (CL-Series & OL-Series):

How to choose between the CL-Series and the OL-Series?


Both series of our Hand Held Fiber Microscope (CL-Series and OL-Series) provide
excellent views of the ferrule end face. We recommend 400x magnication for singlemode and 200 x magnications for multi-mode:
1. If you frequently terminate ber and have received professional training, you are
probably best served by our CL-Series microscope.
2. If you only occasionally terminate ber, and are unsure, you might consider the
OL-Series.

Mode:

A single electromagnetic eld pattern that travels in ber.

Multimode ber:

many modes of light to propagate. Commonly used with LED sources for lower speed, short
distance links.

N

Optical ber:

An optical waveguide, comprised of a light carrying core and cladding which traps light in
the core.

Optical loss test set (OLTS): An measurement instrument for optical loss that includes both a meter and source.
Optical power:

The amount of radiant energy per unit time, expressed in linear units of Watts or on a
logarithmic scale, in dBm (where 0 dB = 1 mW) or dB* (where 0 dB*=1 microWatt).

Optical return loss, back


reection:

Light reected from the cleaved or polished end of a ber caused by the difference of
refractive indices of air and glass. Typically 4% of the incident light. Expressed in dB relative
to incident power.

Optical switch:

A device that routes an optical signal from one or more input ports to one or more output
ports.

Optical time domain


reectometer (OTDR):

An instruments that used backscattered light to nd faults in optical ber and infer loss.

Overlled launch:

A condition for launching light into the ber where the incoming light has a spot size and NA
larger than accepted by the ber, lling all modes in the ber.

P
Photodiode:

A semiconductor that converts light to an electrical signal, used in ber optic receivers.

Pigtail:

A short length of ber attached to a ber optic component such as a laser or coupler.

Plastic optical ber (POF):

An optical ber made of plastic.

Plastic-clad silica (PCS)


ber:

A ber made with a glass core and plastic cladding.

Power budget:

The difference (in dB) between the transmitted optical power (in dBm) and the receiver
sensitivity (in dBm).

Power meter, ber optic:

An instrument that measures optical power emanating form the end of a ber.

Preform:

The large diameter glass rod from which ber is drawn.

Glossary
R
Receive cable:

A known good ber optic jumper cable attached to a power meter used as a reference cable
for loss testing. This cable must be made of ber and connectors of a matching type to the
cables to be tested.

Receiver:

A device containing a photodiode and signal conditioning circuitry that converts light to an
electrical signal in ber optic links.

Refractive index:

A property of optical materials that relates to the velocity of light in the material.

Repeater, regenerator:

A device that receives a ber optic signal and regenerates it for retransmission, used in very
long ber optic links.

S
Scattering:

The change of direction of light after striking small particles that causes loss in optical
bers.

Short wavelength:

A commonly used term for light in the 665, 790, and 850 nm ranges.

Singlemode ber:

A ber with a small core, only a few times the wavelength of light transmitted, that only
allows one mode of light to propagate. Commonly used with laser sources for high
speed, long distance links.

Source:

A laser diode or LED used to inject an optical signal into ber.

Splice (fusion or mechanical):

A device that provides for a connection between two bers, typically intended to be
permanent.

Splitting ratio:

The distribution of power among the output bers of a coupler.

Steady state modal distribution:

Equilibrium modal distribution (EMD) in multimode ber, achieved some distance from
the source, where the relative power in the modes becomes stable with increasing
distance.

Step index ber:

A multimode ber where the core is all the same index of refraction.

Surface emitter LED:

A LED that emits light perpendicular to the semiconductor chip. Most LEDs used in
datacommunications are surface emitters.

T
Talkset, ber optic:

A communication device that allows conversation over unused bers.

Termination:

Preparation of the end of a ber to allow connection to another ber or an active device,
sometimes also called connectorization.

Test cable:

A short single ber jumper cable with connectors on both ends used for testing. This
cable must be made of ber and connectors of a matching type to the cables to be
tested.

Test kit:

A kit of ber optic instruments, typically including a power meter, source and test
accessories used for measuring loss and power.

Test source:

A laser diode or LED used to inject an optical signal into ber for testing loss of the ber
or other components.

Total internal reection:

Connement of light into the core of a ber by the reection off the core-cladding
boundary.

Transmitter:

A device which includes a LED or laser source and signal conditioning electronics that
is used to inject a signal into ber.

V
VCSEL:

vertical cavity surface emitting laser, a type of laser that emits light vertically out of the
chip, not out the edge.

Visual fault locator:

A device that couples visible light into the ber to allow visual tracing and testing of
continuity. Some are bright enough to allow nding breaks in ber through the cable
jacket.

W
Watts:

A linear measure of optical power, usually expressed in milliwatts (mW), microwatts


(*W) or nanowatts (nW).

Wavelength:

A measure of the color of light, usually expressed in nanometers (nm) or microns (*m).

Wavelength division
multiplexing (WDM):

A technique of sending signals of several different wavelengths of light into the ber
simultaneously.

Working margin:

The difference (in dB) between the power budget and the loss budget (i.e. the excess
power margin).
