Fiber Optic Tool Supply Publishes Explanation Of The Fiber Optic Fusion Splicing Process

St. Louis, MO (PressExposure) March 05, 2009 -- Fiber Optic Tool Supply, a leading online retailer of fiber optic diagnostic and repair equipment and other fiber optic tools, recently added a guide to their site explaining how the process of fiber optic fusion splicing works. Owner Mark Hendricks explains, "We wanted to inform those that are interested in fiber optic technology how this high-tech and fascinating process works. We also wanted to point out the benefits that it offers to optical technicians and communications companies."

Splicing fiber optic cable ends together by the means of a fusion splicer is widely regarded as the quickest and most accurate fiber optic cable splicing method. Fiber fusion splicers are used in the telecommunications and computer networking industries on a daily basis in order to minimize network downtime and maximize uptime. The guide also covers single fiber splicers and mass fusion splicers. Mass or ribbon fusion splicers are splicers that have the ability to splice multiple fibers at the same time. Mark explains "When ribbon fiber cables that contained multiple fibers were introduced to the telecommunications world mass splicers became a necessity. They save quite a bit of time when compared to single fiber splicers."
