Several cutters are used for joint preparation of microduct and microtube. Clean cut at right angle of tubes enables leak-less connection and this guarantees long distance blowing and brings reliable operation.
Connectors are for joints of microtubes’ terminals. The straight type of connector, reducer, gas block, direct burial, end cap and many more are used for dedicated purpose.
Splice closure is for splice of optical fibers, while branch closure is for protection of a joint of microtubes, and depending on the environment, the water-tight type may also be used.
Street cabinet, wall-mount box or terminal rack is used for fiber terminations and branches. A splice closure that is installed into manhole or pole has the same function with less operational flexibility.
The purpose of microduct installation is to provide fiber network and this is accomplished by fiber cable blowing. The blowing machine enables it with precise operation and control. Depending on type of fiber cable and microtube sizes, various machines are available.
The driving force that enables fiber cable blowing mainly comes from compressed air. Compressor generates dehydrated cool air for fiber cable blowing, and compact electrical type is suitable for in-building works.
