These DVDs incorporate on-site video clips, animations, and graphics to enhance the learning and viewing experience. Over the past two years, The Light Brigade staff has used its extensive experience in training and education to develop individual DVDs that focus on fiber-optic disciplines and related products. These menu-selectable DVDs allow an instructor to tailor the course and subject matter to a specific audience. In addition, each DVD includes added bonus materials such as instructor and student quizzes.
This DVD looks at a wide variety of fiber optic connectors and attenuators, terminators, military, and multi-pin connectors. Components are reviewed, as well as attenuation and reflectance specifications, mechanical/environmental requirements, tolerances, bonding, scribing, polishing, cleaning, inspection, and testing. Topics:
* The discrete parts of connectors, including plugs, receptacles/adaptors, ferrules/termini, and alignment sleeves.
* Optical and mechanical tolerances and their impact on optical performance.
* Bonding, scribing, polishing, cleaning and visual inspection - an in-depth look at how to achieve the best possible performance from your connectors.
* Specialty connectors such as multi-fiber connectors, military and aerospace connectors, attenuators, terminators, and loopback devices. The importance of yield, the actual loaded cost of a termination including the costs of components, consumables, and associated labor.
* Connector Styles
* Bonding and Scribing
* Endface Verification
* Testing Patchcords
* Multi-fiber Connectors
* Specialty Connectors
