Fiber optic cable is used in a wide variety of applications including communication, lighting, sensors, and lasers. Fiber cable is made of clear glass or plastic optic wire with a transparent sheathing. Fiber optic cables are composed of bundles of wire that may be single-mode or multi-mode fibers. Other fiber optic products include fiber optic kits, cleaners, and cutters. Extending lengths of fiber optics cable requires tools such as a Kevlar cutter, cleaver, stripper, and connection tool. A cleaver can cut single or bundled wire. A fiber cleaning kit includes cleaning fluid. A fiber optic cable tester may include a power meter and a visual fault finder. Fibers are joined using connectors and adhesives. Fiber optic products are available individually and in kits.
Fiber optics use a principle of guided light by refraction. Fiber cables have advantages over metallic wire cables that include a broader band transmission, no electromagnetic interference, and data security. Pre-built fiber optic cable is available with a wide variety of connectors.
