* Buffering Inspection - All tubes manufactured from the buffering lines shall be inspected for dimensional compliance to design criteria and customer requirements. To prepare fibers for testing, use wire cutters (with preset cutting depth) cut off approximately 25 cm of buffer tube and slide away from fibers. Clean fibers and test. Check for required amount of fibers and color, Measure for attenuation at the appropriate wavelength.
* Final Inspection - All Cables manufactured from the Jacketing lines shall be inspected for dimensional compliance to design criteria and customer requirements. Using the pipe cutter cut through the jacket/armor. Peel the outer jacket/armor away from the cable. Save the split jacket samples for jacket dimension tests. Mark each end to identify the end of the cable it was taken from, i.e. ISE or OSE. Using a pair of needle nose pliers, grip a ripcord and pull longitudinally away from the end of the cable until the desired length has been slit. Repeat the process using the second ripcord.
* In-Process Inspection for Ribbon Tubes - All Ribbon tubes manufactured from the Ribbon buffering lines shall be inspected for dimensional compliance to design criteria and customer requirements. Using wire cutters with preset cutting depth cut off approximately 1 meter of buffer tube and slide away from fibers. Wipe off excess grease using Kimwipes, (or generic substitute), D-Gel, and alcohol. Using the OASYS System, or OTDR, test all fibers for attenuation, length and discontinuities.
