What is Fiber Optic Splicing?
Fiber Splicing is the technique that a professional who will use it to connect two or more fiber cables. Fiber optics splicing often results in lesser light loss and back reflection than termination, making it the preferred approach when cable runs are too lengthy for a single length of fiber or when putting two different types of cable together, such as a 48 fiber cable to four 12 fiber cables.

When Do We Need Fiber Optics Splicing?
Fiber optic splicing is required when two fibers or fiber optic cables need to be joined together. There are typically two methods for splicing fibers: mechanical splicing and fusion splicing.

Do’s and Don’ts in fiber splicing
1. Maintain a clean environment. Keep the area as clean as possible, or dust will accumulate on the fiber and affect splicing accuracy.
2. Use utmost caution when handling fiber. Optical fiber is extremely fragile and can break if the cable is bent or curled.
3. Select the best fiber splicing tools. A handy tool makes a handyman, as the saying goes. Your work will be easier to complete if you use the right tools. A fiber cleaver and a fusion splicer are required for fiber splicing, you can also bring a fiber splicing kit or fiber splicing box.
1. Don’t splice when there is light in the optical fiber, because splicing when there is light may cause deterioration of splicing quality.
2. When cleaving the fiber, avoid looking straight at the end face as this may cause blindness. The majority of laser light transmitted through an optical fiber is at a level that will irreversibly damage an eye and do so quickly.
3. Don’t splice an optical fiber that is linked to a high-power device, such as an EDFA. It may potentially cause gadget harm.
4. Don’t eat or drink when splicing fiber optic cables. It will pollute the environment.
5. Don’t smoke when working with fiber optic cables. It could start a fire.
