Optical Fibre and Copper Cabling Systems

Optical Fibre Connectivity

Every connector assembly supplied by WBT is made using quality parts in a high quality termination facility, according to recognised and approved international standards. The quality and inspection procedures employed ensure only high quality, individually inspected and approved pigtails and patch cords are supplied. Therefore customers can have confidence that the product supplied will perform reliably to a high standard in the telecommunications and data networks for many years. Each patch cord is individually inspected and tested at the time of production.

Typically installed close to the Transmitting system (Tx), not the receive (Rx) system. Attenuators made from doped fibre are used in-line, in an optical transmission system, to reduce the signal strength, to safe and acceptable levels. This signal attenuation prevents unplanned outages due to equipment failure. These items are used in systems such as: Telecommunication Networks; CATV Networks; Data Communications Networks; Instrumentation and Local Area Networks. The Attenuator is manufactured to recognised and approved industry standards, and will achieve a 20 year service lifetime, under typical operational conditions. Each attenuator assembly is capable of a reasonable number (eg 500) of matings/unmatings, and of withstanding normal (not excessive) operational handling forces/loads without suffering any damage or significant increase in optical performance. The complete assembly is capable of reliable operation in Exchanges or Repeaters over the temperature range of –40 degrees to + 80 degrees Celsius, and up to high levels of RH. The attenuator can be safely stored, in suitable accommodation, over the temperature range of –50 degrees to + 85 degrees Celsius.
