APRIL 2, 2007 -- The Light Brigade (search for Light Brigade) has announced its newest menu-based DVD, entitled Fiber Optic Connectors. This new DVD is the eighth release in the company's Staff Development series of instructional DVDs.

Anyone who works with fiber optics needs to be aware of the many types of connectors that are available, their history, and their evolution, according to the training specialist. The Fiber Optic Connectors DVD focuses on the many disciplines that are associated with their termination, testing, inspection, and cleaning. Also covered are:


  • The discrete parts of connectors, including plugs, receptacles/adaptors, ferrules/termini, and alignment sleeves.
  • Optical and mechanical tolerances and their impact on optical performance.
  • Bonding, scribing, polishing, cleaning and visual inspection -- an in-depth look at how to achieve the best possible performance from your connectors.
  • Specialty connectors such as multi-fiber connectors, military and aerospace connectors, attenuators, terminators, and loopback devices.
  • The importance of yield, the actual loaded cost of a termination including the costs of components, consumables, and associated labor.

The material is divided into menu-selectable chapters for easy access. Quizzes are included for content review and/or testing.

The Fiber Optic Connectors DVD (Part No. W�6D�181) is available at a price of $150.
