Step-by-Step Plastic
Cable Connectoring
The following step-by-step guide
describes how to terminate plastic
fiber optic cable. It is ideal for
both field and factory installation.
Connectors can be easily installed
on cable ends with wire strippers,
cutters and a crimping tool.
Finishing the cable is accom-
plished with the Agilent
HFBR-4593 Polishing Kit, consist-
ing of a Polishing Fixture, 600
grit abrasive paper and 3
µm pink
lapping film (3M Company,
OC3-14). The connector can be
used immediately after polishing.
Materials needed for plastic fiber
termination are:
1. Agilent Plastic Optical Fiber
Cable (Example: HFBR-
RUS500, HFBR-RUD500,
2. Industrial Razor Blade or Wire
3. 16 Gauge Latching Wire
Strippers (Example: Ideal
StripmasterTM type 45-092).
4. HFBR-4597 Crimping Tool
5. HFBR-4593 Polishing Kit
6. One of the following

Crimp Ring

Step 1
The zip cord structure of the
duplex cable permits easy
separation of the channels. The
channels should be separated a
minimum of 100 mm (4 in) to a
maximum of 150 mm (6 in) back
from the ends to permit
connectoring and polishing.
After cutting the cable to the
desired length, strip off approxi-
mately 7 mm (0.3 in.) of the outer
jacket with the 16 gauge wire
strippers. Excess webbing on the
duplex cable may have to be
trimmed to allow the simplex or
simplex latching connector to
slide over the cable.
When using the duplex connector
and duplex cable, the separated
duplex cable must be stripped to
equal lengths on each cable. This
allows easy and proper seating of
the cable into the duplex
Step 2
Place the crimp ring and connec-
tor over the end of the cable; the
fiber should protrude about 3 mm
(0.12 in.) through the end of the
connector. Carefully position the
ring so that it is entirely on the
connector with the rim of the
crimp ring flush with the connec-
tor, leaving a small space between
the crimp ring and the flange.
Then crimp the ring in place with
the crimping tool. One crimp tool
is used for all POF connector
crimping requirements.
For applications with extreme
temperature operation or frequent
temperature cycling, improved
connector to cable attachment
can be achieved with the use of an
RTV (GE Company, RTV-128 or
Dow Corning 3145-RTV)
adhesive. The RTV is placed into
the connector prior to insertion of
the fiber and the fiber is crimped
normally. The connector can be
polished after the RTV has cured
and is then ready for use.
Note: By convention, place the
gray connector on the trans-
mitter cable end and the blue
connector on the receiver cable
end to maintain color coding
(different color connectors are
mechanically identical).
Simplex connector crimp rings
cannot be used with duplex con-
nectors and duplex connector
crimp rings cannot be used
with simplex connectors because
of size differences. The simplex
crimp has a dull luster appear-
ance; the duplex ring is glossy
and has a thinner wall.
