To reduce the risk associated with eye injury:|
- Safety glasses should be worn when handling chemicals and cleaving the optical fiber.
To reduce the risk associated with fire:
- Storage, use and disposal of isopropyl alcohol should be per your company health, safety and environmental instruc-
tions. Refer to material safety data sheet for health hazards, safe handling, proper use and control measures.
To reduce the risk associated with eye or skin irritation from fiber gel in connector:
- Product contains phenylmethyl silicone (63148-58-3), hydrophobic silica (68611-44-9) and may cause minimal eye
irritation. Avoid contact with eyes and wash hands before eating or smoking. Upon eye contact, immediately flush
eyes with water while holding eyelids open and continue flushing for ten minutes. Contact a physician. Upon skin
contact, wash with soap and water. Refer to Safety Data Sheet for product information
To reduce the risk associated with handling sharp glass fibers:
- Cleaved glass fibers are sharp and can pierce the skin. Use tweezers when handling shards and dispose of them
properly per your company health and safety instructions.
Bare Fiber Handling
To reduce the risk associated with fiber damage:
- Optical fiber can be damaged by excessive tensile, compressive and bending forces. Consult the manufactures’ spec-
ifications for proper handling instructions.
To reduce the risk associated with eye damage from exposure to laser light:
- Take the proper precautions when working with optical fiber because invisible laser light may be present. The prin-
cipal laser hazard when working with fiber optics is injury to the eye. Never look directly into the fiber or connector
using the naked eyeor a microscope.
Materials required for connector termination
You will find following components in a box of connectors.
No Polish Connector 8832-JG1/6832-JG1
C. Cable holder
D. Disposable stripper (for 250um coating removal only, up to 20 stripping)
Note: content may vary depending on product you purchased
F. Fiber cleaver
G. Fiber Stripper
Note: Carefully follow safety, health and environmental information given on product labels or the Safety Data
Sheets for isopropyl alcohol, fiber optic cleaning solution.
Put connector boot on cable
Butt up jacket end against the stop on the cable holder
as shown. Group aramid yarn and insert into one of the
slot next to the stop.
Remove cable jacket 50mm from the cable end. Cable
holder can be used to measure the length. Align the end
of cable to the double line on the cable holder to meas-
Lay the cable straight on the cable holder. Place the ca-
ble in appropriate position in the clamp depending on
fiber type inside cable jacket. And close the cover to
Upper position: cable with
900um coated fiber inside
Lower position: cable with
250um coated fiber inside
Make sure fiber sit in fiber guide slit in sliding connect-
Fully pull out sliding connector nest from the cable
holder. Put marking(s) on the fiber with a marking pen
1st marking: at the edge of holder body
2nd marking: at the indicator “0.9”
(900um fiber only)
Marking locations for cable with 250µm fiber inside
Marking locations for cable with 900µm fiber inside
(900um fiber only)
Bring the sliding nest back to original position. Strip buffer coating using appropriate stripping tool
Stripping 250µm fiber using disposable stripper
cable holder on the stripper such that cable holder butt up against the stop. Close the stripper and pull
out the cable holder
Abut cable holder
Caution: Do NOT OVERUSE the stripper (up to 20 strip-
ping) or may damage stripped fiber
Caution: Do NOT STRIP the same fiber twice or may dam-
age the stripped fiber.
Thoroughly clean the stripped fiber with a lint-free wipe and alcohol or cleaning fluid.
Test the stripped fiber for weak points by using your
finger to slowly flick the fiber in multiple directions.
Watch for the fiber to spring back to the straight posi-
tion. If the fiber breaks, properly dispose of broken-off
piece and repeat at Step 2.2.
Do not touch bare glass 10mm from buffer end
Place the cable holder on a cleaver and push it to the
stop. Cleave the fiber per cleaver manufacture's instruc-
Note: If cleave length gauge is installed on your cleaver, remove
the gauge prior to connector installation. Save the cleave length
gauge for later use.
Holder butt up
Stripping 900µm fiber
Remove coating at the 2nd marking and outward with appropriate stripping tool.
Check for cleave length and strip length by pulling out sliding connector nest of cable holder.
Glass fiber end
900µm buffer end
250µm buffer end
Fiber end/buffer end must be within respective gauge window (900µm buffer shown as example)
Pull out buffer clamp to release buffer
Remove connector from the plastic bag. Attach the connector to sliding connector nest with splice cap
Pinch side of sliding connector nest to allow fiber guide protrude downward. (see Section
Check for buffer clamp. If the clamp is partially actuated, remove the connector and repeat at Section
Hold the cable holder by both sides. SLOWLY slide
back the connector to insert fiber into the connector.
Caution: Do NOT TOUCH CABLE until splice is actuated
at Section 2.17.
Be aware of fiber guide protruding downward until
splice is acutated
Caution: Do NOT PUSH UP fiber guide or connector may
pop out from cable holder
Check for marking on buffer at the end of buffer clamp.
If marking is not at this position, pull out the sliding
head and check for fiber length again per Section 2.10.
And insert fiber again per Section 2.15
Flip back actuation lever on the dust cap and fully press down the lever
Check if cap is fully actuated. If not, press down lever again
Slide boot next to the holder
Release holder cover and bring boot closer to connector
Remove aramid yarn from the slot and lay it on connect-
Hold aramid yarn and connector TOGETHER and re-
move from the cable holder.
Caution: Keep holding aramid yarn and connector togeth-
er until boot is secured to the connector. Failure to do so
may induce twist in fiber resulting in fiber break later
WHILE HOLDING ARAMID YARN AND CONNECTOR TOGETHER WITH ONE HAND, take
about half of aramid yarn with another hand and bring it to the bottom side of connector.
Fully tighten boot WHILE HOLDING ARAMID
YARN AND CONNECTOR TOGETHER.
Trim off excess aramid yarn with snips. Termination
Bring boot up to connector
Caution: Keep holding aramid yarn and connector togeth-
er until boot is secured to connector. Failure to do so may
induce twist in fiber resulting in fiber break later
Duplexing No Polish LC-JG1 Connectors
No Polish LC-JG1 can be duplexed without using extra parts. Two connectors can dovetail together to
form duplex connector
Identify dovetailing features on both sides of connector body
Dovetail two connectors to assemble them together
Make sure latches are fitting together
Insert two folks on the dust cap into slots on back side of connector
Unscrew and remove boot from connector.
Pull out buffer clamp with fingers then remove fiber
from the connector
