Fiber optic cable fault elimination


In an emergency cable repair situation, it is necessary to start normal cable testing to locate cable breaks.

Once that is done and cable break is accessible, we remove 10 m of cable either side of the break, thus ensuring that the remaining cable is undamaged.

After that, cable fibres are being prepared for fusion and fused.

As in normal fibre splicing when fusion is done we protect the splicing joint with special sleeve, same for the rest of the cable. Finally, we test again the cable on breaks to ensure that all works were performed correctly.
