Over the years Fibre Break has purchased a great deal of splicing equipment. All our equipment is of optimum quality to ensure a high standard of workmanship and ease of work.

We also believe that, in order to complete a job correctly, a fibre technician should be given the correct tool to complete a job.

Tools that Fibre Break currently uses:

  • Fujikura 60S Fusion Splicer (Core Alignment Splicer)
  • Fujikura 17S Fusion Splicer (V – Grove Splicer)
  • Optec Fusion Splicer (Core Alignment Splicer)
  • EXFO FTB-200 OTDR (Optical Time Domain Reflectometer )
  • EXFO FTB-7300D-234B Single Mode Module 1310/1550/1625nm Wavelengths (9/125 μm)
  • FIS Multi Mode & Single Mode OTDR (Optical Time Domain Reflectometer)
  • Optical Light Source And Power Meters
  • 2 x CT – 30 Precision Cleaver’s
  • Optec Precision Cleaver
  • Various Fibre Optical Preparation Tools
  • Various Vehicles

All our equipment is well cared for and serviced regularly to ensure that it operates to correct standards.

All splicing and testing equipment has calibration certification and certificates available on request.

Additional equipment would be purchase-dependent on the requirements of the project.

All equipment purchased will adhere to the project standard of splicing and testing.

With our existing equipment we have successfully completed all our projects to the required standards.

We have worked with Fujikura equipment and found it to be reliable and produce the best splice results.

All the equipment we have, and intend to purchase, is serviceable by the agents in South Africa.

Prior to commencement of any work all our equipment will be calibrated to ensure that it is working correctly.

Testing the Fibre Optic cable or network will be carried out by our own staff using either a multi-mode or single-mode Fibre Optic light source and power meters or our own multi-mode or single-mode OTDR test equipment. Our site based technical staff are also qualified in the installation and testing of complete Fibre Optic networks and are also fully trained to carry out splicing and jointing of Fibre Optic cables.


Cable Installation & Hauling | Fibre Break

On the ground to prevent twisting (the figure 8 puts a half twist in on one side of the 8 and takes it out on the other, preventing twists.) And always use a swivel pulling eye because pulling tension will cause twisting forces on the cable. The cable manufacturer gives you the perfect solution to pulling the cables, they install special strength members, usually duPont Kevlar aramid yarn or a fibreglass rod to pull on.


Splicing | Fibre Break

Mechanical Splices are alignment gadgets that hold the ends of two fibers together with some index matching gel or glue between them. Splicing is a “permanent” connection between two fibre cores, and is the preferred method for terminating. Field fusion splicing is usually done above ground in a truck or trailer set up for the purpose. Fusion Splices are made by “welding” the two fibers together by an electric arc.
