The main disadvantages of Fiber Optic compared to Copper Cables are basically:
Low Tensile Strength
Fiberglass is more fragile than copper, therefore the tensile strength of the fiber is lower than copper cable. Copper cable's high tensile strength is helpful in preventing cable stretching and breaking and therefore preventing system failures.
Complex Fusion Process
The connection of Fiber Optic Cables is a more skilled and often delicate process.
Fiber cores must be accurately connected. Since the fiber core is very thin, and the melting point of quartz is high, the engineer requires in depth training, and must be equipped with professional fusion devices and test equipment.
And we are able to provide a superb range of Fusion Splicers, Test equipment and Site necessories items, such as:
