As the expansion of fibre optic systems continues and the amount of installed single and multiway ruggedised fibre cable increases there has been a growing interest in "IN-SITU" fibre cable repair systems. Until recently, fibre cable repairs have been centred around conventional techniques (1, 2 & 3) i.e. termination and fusion splicing. The repair conditions dictated by these techniques requires the utilisation of the following facilities and materials:- 1. Epoxy resin systems and their applicators. 2. Good polishing facilities. 3. Passive hand held tools: e.g. cable strippers, wire cutters, fibre cleaver etc. 4. Active tools (electrically powered); e.g. Arc fusion splicer, heat gun, heat curing fixtures etc. 5. Connectors for terminated fibres. 6. Completed internal and external splice protection (for fusion splicing). 7. Visual inspection (microscopes).
