The performance of the quality optitap fiber connector, first of all, the optical performance, in addition to the interchangeability, repeatability, tensile strength, temperature and insertion and removal times of the fiber optic connector.
(1) Optical performance: For the optical performance requirements of the quality optitap fiber connector, the two most basic parameters are insertion loss and return loss.
Insertion loss (InsertionLoss) is the connection loss, which refers to the loss of the effective optical power of the link caused by the introduction of the connector. The smaller the insertion loss, the better, and the general requirement should be no more than 0.5dB.
Return loss (ReturnLoss, ReflectionLoss) refers to the ability of the connector to suppress the reflection of the optical power of the link, and its typical value should not be less than 25dB. In the practical application of the connector, the surface of the pin has been specially polished, which can make the return loss larger, generally not less than 45dB.
(2) Interchangeability and repeatability
The quality optitap fiber connector is a general-purpose passive device. For the same type of fiber optic connector, it can generally be used in any combination and can be used repeatedly. The additional loss introduced by this is generally within the range of less than 0.2dB.
(3) Tensile strength For a good quality optitap fiber connector, it is generally required that its tensile strength should not be less than 90N.
As a general requirement, the quality optitap fiber connector must be able to be used normally at the temperature of -40oC~+70oC.
(5) times of plugging and unplugging
The quality optitap fiber connectors used now can basically be plugged and unplugged more than 1000 times.
