What are the types of fibre optic connectors available and how do I know which one I need?

Types of fibre optic connectors Nowadays, we can see how the use of fibre optics for data transmission is becoming more and more common in all types of communications systems. With fibre, millions of bots per second can be transmitted, allowing access to a high-speed, high-quality service. Connectors do not distinguish between single-mode (SM) and multimode (MM) fibre, as even if they have a different core (9-10μ” for single-mode and 62.5 or 50μ” for multimode), the cladding or cladding is 125μ” for both. In plastic connectors such as LC or SC the body will be of a different colour and will indicate the type of fibre used and the polish of the ferrule. SC, LC, ST and FC connectors have a ferrule through which the fibre passes. When connectors are fitted to the equipment, through …

Fibre optic measure instruments

Fibre optic measuring instruments

Blog – Fibre optic measuring instruments As well as copper installations have measuring instruments, in fibre optic installations it is also necessary to have fibre optic measuring equipment, with which to check that everything is working correctly (read power values, detect faults, etc.). In this new blog entry we list the main equipment available at Keynet Systems : Visual Fault Locator VFL To check a fibre for continuity with the naked eye, we use a visual fault locator (VFL). This is a device that emits visible laser light, usually red, and we can see whether or not it reaches the other end to detect a fault or identify a fibre in a bundle. The beam of light can be continuous or discontinuous and, depending on the power of the model, it can be used over …

ODFK Series

High density ODFK series for data centres

High density ODFK series for data centres More than half of the energy consumption of a data centre is related to the cooling of the data centre. Optimising consumption is directly related to optimising the volume to be cooled. For this reason, the market is tending towards more compact equipment, with the greatest number of connections in the smallest possible space. However, when designing a data centre, we must not forget the fundamental aspect of versatility. A design with a high density of connections but little flexibility is of little use. At Keynet, we have opted for totally modular systems that allow the installation of faceplates, cassettes, keystones…etc, in the same tray, optimising space and making it possible to easily make subsequent extensions or modifications. For this reason, we have developed a wide range of …

RTR Cabinets

ICT2 Registers – RTR cabinets

Network Termination Register (RTR Cabinets) for residential installations RTR-A This register is supplied in two parts so that the installer can imprison the frame during the wall plastering process. Later in the final phase of the work, the wooden panel with the equipment, the frame and the door will be mounted. This way the register is clean when the equipment is mounted. Main features: Reversible hinged door. Ventilation slots. Wall anchoring clips. Pre-marked side accesses for pipe entry. Depth adjustable frame favouring the final appearance. RTR-B Compact register with all the elements in a single piece. The door incorporates an anchorage to the structure that prevents accidental falls and damage to people or housing. Main features: Reversible door without hinge. Ventilation slots. Wall anchoring clips. Pre-marked side accesses for pipe entry. Door clamping element. Depth …

Normativa CPR

The CPR Regulation

Foundations of the CPR Regulation In March 2011, the European Parliament published the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) as a Regulation. This regulation sets out the conditions for the marketing of construction products throughout the European Union. This regulation regulates all cables that are part of a construction, whether they are electrical, data, switchgear, fibre optics, etc. The member states have had to adapt their national regulations to bring them into line with the European CPR. Spain, in particular, and as far as cables are concerned, had to adapt the regulations on Common Telecommunications Installations (ICT) and the Low Voltage Regulation. One of the fundamental aspects of the CPR is the exhaustive regulation of the behaviour of materials in the event of fire. Cables are no exception. The CPR divides cables according to their behaviour according …
