Pay attention to the use of the fiber optic patch cord

2022-06-28

The optical transceivers at both ends of a fiber optic patch cord must send and receive the same wavelength, that is, the optical transceivers at both ends of the optical fiber must be of the same wavelength. A simple way to distinguish the optical transceivers is to use the same color. Generally, short-wave optical modules use multi-mode optical fibers (orange optical fibers), and long-wave optical modules use single-mode optical fibers (yellow optical fibers) to ensure the accuracy of data transmission.
Do not excessively bend and loop the optical fiber in use, which will increase the attenuation of light in the transmission process.
Use protective sleeves to protect optical fiber connectors after fiber optic patch cord is used. Dust and oil may damage optical fiber coupling.
If the fiber connector is dirty, you can use cotton swab dipped in alcohol to clean, otherwise the communication quality will be affected.
