How to Use Corning RST-000 Ribbon Fiber Splitting Tool

You will learn how to use Corning’s ribbon fiber splitting tool to divide fiber optic ribbons. Now let’s go! :: What the RST-000 Can Do Split a ribbon fiber up to a length of 0.5 meter (20 inches) per cleaning For longer lengths, just clean the splitting tool and repeat the process. Both mid-span and end-of-ribbon applications. Split ribbon with 4 to 36 fibers. As indicated by the sum of the stacked numbers on the tool (2+2 = 4 fibers, 12+24 = 36 fibers) The cleaning process’s purpose is to remove ribbon matrix material residues from the tool’s channels after

Fiber Optic Cleaver

:: What is a fiber optic cleaver? A fiber optic cleaver is a piece of tool or equipment to make an almost perfect fiber end face cut. Just like using a diamond scribe tool when cutting glass, a fiber cleaver’s cutting wheel (blade) makes a very tiny cut on the fiber first, then the fiber is pressed against the little cut to force it to break at 90° angle and expose a mirror like fiber end face. :: Why do we need to cleave optical fibers? Optical fiber needs to be cleaved for fusion splicing. Optical fiber fusion splicing nearly
