Cables and fibres with Si-V-groove arrays are used to simultaneously couple
several fibres with greater precision. They are slim, compact and offer very
good mechanical resistance.
The groove blocks are made of silicon, which is a brittle material. Do not handle them using metal instruments.
Each groove block is carefully inspected, cleaned and packaged before shipping. However, dust may settle on the polished surface once the protective cap is removed. Users must therefore inspect the product. Use of a 400x microscope is recommended.
Before you inspect a connector, always make sure the light source is turned off.
