CHANCES ARE YOUR UNIT IS USING FIBER OPTIC CABLES. IF NOT, IT SOON WILL BE.
FIBER OPTIC CABLE HAS SOME SPECIAL HANDLING NEEDS AND REQUIRES SOME SPECIAL MAINTENANCE.

1. A fiber optic cable is a cylindrical pipe. It is made so the pipe--the fiber--can guide light from one end to the other.
2. A fiber optic cable has a core, a cladding and a jacket. The core carries the light beam and may be made of glass, plastic or a combination of both. The cladding strengthens the core. And the jacket acts like a shock absorber shock absorber, device for reducing the effect of a sudden shock by the dissipation of the shock's energy. On an automobile, springs and shock absorbers are mounted between the wheels and the frame. to protect the core and the cladding. It also protects them from abrasions, solvents and other contaminants. But it can't stand up to abuse.
3. When it comes to mode-of-light transmission, a fiber optic cable can be one of two types: multimode or single mode. Multimode is used for short range communications and is the most often used by the Army. Single mode is used for long range communications and is normally found in strategic-based systems.
4. Fiber optic cable can be spliced, but it's not like twisting two wires together. A splice requires a precise alignment of the mated fiber cores. There are two types of splices: fusion and mechanical. Field splices are almost always mechanical. Contact direct support for splicing splicing /splic·ing/ (spli´sing)
1. the attachment of individual DNA molecules to each other, as in the production of chimeric genes.
2. RNA s. help.
5. Know your cable's bend radius and do not bend it sharper than that. The current standard is 10 times the cable's outside diameter under a no-pull load and 15 times the cable's outside diameter when the cable is under tension.
6. Do not stretch, puncture or crush fiber cables.
7. Do not polish the end of the connectors with a cloth made of synthetic fibers. The residue fibers will attract dust.
8. Keep the dust caps on the cable connectors, transmitter and receiver until you connect the cable. When you disconnect, immediately, put the dust covers back.
9. The fiber end face and ferrule A ceramic, plastic or stainless steel part of a fiber-optic plug that holds the end of the fiber and precisely aligns it to the socket. The fiber is inserted into the ferrule and cemented with an epoxy or adhesive, which gives it long-term mechanical strength and prevents contamination must be absolutely clean before it is inserted into a transmitter or receiver.
10. Dust, lint lint - A Unix C language processor which carries out more thorough checks on the code than is usual with C compilers.
Lint is named after the bits of fluff it supposedly picks from programs. , oil from your hands and other foreign particles compromise the strength and integrity of the signal. Never touch the fiber-end face of the connector unless cleaning it.
11. Unprotected connector ends are most often damaged by impact, such as hitting the floor. Use protection boots on the connectors and use only those that cover the entire connector end and not just the ferrule.
12. The leading cause for signal loss is dirt on connectors. Clean the connectors with pure isopropyl alcohol isopropyl alcohol: see isopropanol. . Do not use isopropyl alcohol that has been diluted with mineral oil or water.
Always use a lens-grade, lint-free tissue to clean. It is best to fold the tissue twice to create a four-layer-thick pad.

1. To imbue or impregnate thoroughly.
2. To soak, fill, or load to capacity.
3. To cause a substance to unite with the greatest possible amount of another substance. the tissue with the alcohol and use your finger and fingernail fin·ger·nail

13. Fiber optic cables have the largest power loss at connectors and not on the length of the cable. Try not to use more than three connected cables.
FINALLY, IP YOU HAVE TO REPLACE A CABLE, USE THE CABLE IDENTIFIED IN THE TM.
ALL FIBER OPTIC CABLES LOOK THE SAME ON THE OUTSIDE, BUT THE ACTUAL FIBERS CAN BE DIFFERENT AND NOT ALWAYS INTERCHANGEABLE.
