Fiber Optic Cabling
The abrasive materials can be a typical abrasive mineral, such as diamond powders or particles, graphite/carbide powders or particles, or an identical materials that is more durable than glass. For example, in an exemplary different aspect, the versatile abrasive material can comprise a steel wire, having a diameter of about 155 μm, which is coated with 20 μm diamond particles. In different different elements, the abrasive material can comprise a sheet or ribbon of sand paper, a sheet or ribbon of lapping film, or a string kind abrasive. As talked about above, body portion 120 can be rotated about shaft 107 by motion within the direction of arrow 104 from an open position (see Fig. IA) to a closed position (see Fig. 1C).
In a preferred facet, device one hundred, when in a closed position, can have a length of about 3 to 4 inches and a width of about 2 to 3 inches. This measurement may be decreased even additional as could be obvious to certainly one of ability in the artwork given the current description. In a preferred side, physique 105, together with physique portions 110 and one hundred twenty, and parts thereof may be formed or molded from a polymer materials, similar to a plastic, though steel and different suitably inflexible supplies can also be utilized. 3B is a side view picture of an exemplary fiber finish cleaved utilizing the fiber cleaver of one other side of the present invention. 3 A is an image of an exemplary fiber end cleaved using the fiber cleaver of an aspect of the present invention.
2B is another isometric view of the fiber cleaver of Fig. IB is another isometric view of the fiber cleaver of Fig.
1C is another isometric view of the fiber cleaver of Fig. IA is an isometric view of a fiber cleaver based on a first aspect of the invention. The current invention is directed to an apparatus and technique for cleaving an optical fiber, specifically, an optical fiber to be terminated and polished in the area. An Optical Fiber Cleaver makes use of a particular designed carbon metal blade for straightforward, guide cleaving of fiber surfaces. This software is used with the “scratch and pull” method.
IB exhibits the gadget 100 in an intermediate place (observe that fiber 108 is omitted from Fig. IB for simplicity). During such motion, pressure may be positioned on fiber 108 to hold it in place on body portion 110. In this example, physique portion 110 contains indented area 112 that's configured to receive a consumer's thumb or finger. In a most well-liked facet, body portion 120 is configured to slide beneath physique portion 110. This jack-knife type configuration provides for a compact, lightweight, cheap gadget.
