The Fiberstore’s Basic fiber optic tool kits provide you with dozens of basic tools that are essential for fiber optic termination, construction, splicing, polishing and testing. The kit includes strippers, cable slitters and other precision hand tools, consumable products, and much more. All of the contents are packed in a durable case, keeping the items you need within easy reach. For example, the fiber optic termination tool kit provided by Fiberstore.
The traditional Erpoxy and Polish Connector Termination Tool Kit:
This type of kit sometimes is also called universal connectorization epoxy tool kit. They include all the tools necessary for hand-polishing termination of epoxy optic connectors such as FC, SC, ST, LC, etc. The following list shows all essentials tools that should be included.
a. Fiber cable jacket stripper to remove outer jacket from optical cables;
b. Fiber stripper to remove fiber coatings (900um tight buffer or 250um UV coating layer) to expose the bare fiber cladding;
c. Kevlar scissors to cut the yellow strength member inside fiber jacket;
d. Fiber connector crimp tool for FC, SC, ST, LC;
e. Fiber scribe tool to scribe the bare fiber;
f. Epoxy for fixing the fiber inside the connector, empty syringes for epoxy dispensing into the connector;
g. Glass polish plate so you can place rubber polish pad on top of it;
h. Rubber polish pad so you can place the lapping films on top of it;
i. Lapping films (several grits included, typically 12um, 3um, 1um and 0.5um);
j. Connector hand polish pucks for FC, SC, ST, LC;
k. Inspection microscope so you can inspect the quality of your work;
l. Heat cure oven to cure the epoxy (either 220V or 110V);
m. Other misc. items for cleaning such as Kimwipes, Isopropyl alcohol, etc.
Quick Termination Connector Tool Kit
90 percent of quick termination connectors don’t require polishing. They have a factory pre-polished fiber stub inside the connector body, all you need to do is strip your fiber, clean, cleave the fiber and then insert the cleaved fiber into the connector body, with or without assembly tool assistance, then finally crimp the connector with specialized tool.
There is no universal quick termination connector tool kit, since each connector is designed differently by their manufacturers and requires proprietary assembly tool.
The fiber optic tools come in a range of colours, designs and features — from subtle to spunky. For the ones who like to keep it simple, there are designs, such as a portable and practical crimping tool. For someone who like it sophisticated, there are designs, such as the Multi-Function F-Type, RJ-12 and RJ-45 Cable Tester. With affordable pricing, these tools do meet the expectations of as many customers as possible.
Fiber Optic Termination Kits provide field engineers with a low cost and highly portable solution. FiberStore has provided four different options for the consumer. The basic Fiber Optic Termination Kit includes adhesives and primers, a fiber scraps bin, polishing pads, pre-saturated IPA wipes, lint free wipes, syringes and needles, a cleave tool, and a polishing puck. The other three models contain the tools of the basic kit and options such as light meter and fiber microscope, maximizing the functionality and flexibility of the Kits. And the Fiber Connector Termination Tool Kit contains all of the latest popular fiber optic tools and consumable material necessary for epoxy and polish connector terminations(SC/ST/FC and LC connectors).
