Fiber Optic Splice Tray

Methods like mechanical splicing or fusion splicing for optical fiber termination have become quite common nowadays because of fiber optic network technology advancements. The optical fibers are sensitive materials that may get impacted by forces like pulling, crushing, and bending. Here, the fiber optic splice tray acts as a shield and offers safe routings and an easily manageable environment for the optical fiber splices. Earlier, the tray used to be installed inside a box that was mounted on the wall. Today, you can find the use of fiber splice trays in many places in a fiber-optic network. We will briefly discuss fiber optic splice trays’ functions and installation procedures.

What is a Fiber Optic Splice Tray? 

A fiber splice tray is typically used to protect and hold the individual fiber optic splices. While talking about fiber optic splices, our customers must know there are mainly two types of optic splices: the fusion splice and the mechanical splice. There are a few things you need to consider while buying any fiber optic splice tray:

 • Using specialized trays for different types of splices is advisable

• Carefully note the fiber count a fiber splice tray is capable of holding

 Where to use a Fiber Optic Splice Tray?

 Fiber optic splice trays are not strong enough to independently protect fiber splices, so they are used with other components. A fiber splice tray is usually used as an accessory for other devices like fiber optic enclosure, fiber distribution boxes, etc. The applications are as such:

 • In Fiber Optic Splice Closure

A fiber optic splice closure is a component that contains one or more fiber splice trays to protect fiber optic splices in harsh environments.

 • In Fiber Distribution Box

In FTTx projects, fiber distribution boxes are used for the distribution of individual fibers to the end-users. A fiber optic splice tray is deployed inside this distribution box for the management and robust protection of fiber splices.

 • In Fiber Enclosure

Besides the applications mentioned above, fiber optic splice trays are popular in data centers and server rooms. These trays are installed in a fiber enclosure to provide robust protection and a manageable environment for the fiber optic splices.

 How to Install a Fiber Optic Splice Tray?

 The installation procedure of fiber optic splice trays follows five easy steps:

 Step One: Route the fibers into a fiber splice tray using spiral transportation tubes and secure them with cable ties.

Step Two: Splice the fibers carefully.

Step Three: After slicing, place the spliced fibers into sleeve holders.

Step Four: Now, coil the outgoing fiber slack carefully into the fiber optic splice tray.

Step Five: After coiling the outgoing fiber, it is now time to coil the incoming fiber slack into the fiber splice tray.

 By following the simple steps mentioned above, you can install a fiber optic splice tray without much effort. In case you need more information, check out our website.
