In the world of fiber optics, fiber optic V-grooves and bare fiber connectors are two very important tools. They are used in data transmission, telecommunications, and even medical applications in order to align and couple optical fibers. Essentially, it is composed of two parts: a groove and a cladding. It uses the V-groove to hold the optical fiber in place while protecting it from damage with the cladding.

Why do we need a Fiber Optic V-Groove?
Fiber optic grooves are crucial for aligning and coupling optical fibers to devices. In addition, bare fiber connectors are used to connect two optical fibers. Hence, fiber optic v grooves and bare fiber connectors are crucial components for optical devices. By aligning and connecting two optical fibers, they ensure proper alignment of the optical fiber.
How to use it?
To use the Fiber Optic V-Groove,
Clean the end of the optical fiber with Isopropyl Alcoholl and a lint-free cloth.
Next, insert the optical fiber into the v-groove so that the fiber core is centered.
Finally, place the other end of the optical fiber into the coupling device or directly into the light source.
Note: Avoid colliding and scraping the precision V-groove with rough objects to prevent damage to the tank. Every time the V-groove needs to be cleaned, it must be wiped down with an alcoholic cotton ball.
The Fiber Optic V-Groove and bare fiber connector comes with outdoor waterproof feature. In other words, it can be used in outdoor applications and is designed to withstand exposure to the elements. By using V-Grooves, the fiber is protected from the sun and other environmental factors, while bare fiber connectors enable the fiber to be connected to the device.
Core Loss: Using the V-groove in the fiber optic connector, the two fibers are aligned so that their axes are parallel. This ensures that light can pass through the connection with minimal loss. In fact, the core loss of a V-groove connection is typically less than 0.5 dB (for the same single-mode fiber).
Tips for cleaning:
To clean the Fiber Optic V-Groove,
Remove any debris from the v-groove with a soft brush.
Next, clean the v-groove with Isopropyl Alcohol and a lint-free cloth.
Finally, rinse the v-groove with water and dry it with a lint-free cloth.
A short note of key features:
Suitable for laboratory testing, optical cable manufacturer quality inspection, and outdoor construction tests
Detection of loss, fiber length, and event point
The operation is simple, the loss is stable, and the test is followed up
No delay in measurement progress due to a fast core or easy core change.
