Fiberstars Hot Knife 60 Watt
My installer just finished installing these fiber optic cables but the light is uneven. My neighbor told me it was because he didn't use a hot knife. Is this true?
If the fiber was cut unevenly, this would likely cause the uneven distribution of light you're describing. I would also check the length of the cable and any bends along the perimeter.
What temperature is needed to cut the fiber ends ? I have a hot knife that heats to 900 degrees. Is that sufficient heat to trim the fiber ends cleanly ? The Fiberstars hot knife only states 60 watts. It does not give the heat rating.
Hi David, Yes 900 degrees would be sufficient.
