Pictures taken following the installation of the fiber glass rod.
Note in Pictures 8/9 the twisting of the Fiber Optic runs and the
cross over of the fiber optic from the left side to the right side.
This one in particular caused most of the problem with the rotation.
You can also see the second support point for the control cable support
Note also last picture. This image shows one of the
bundle housings pulling out of the FIF. The fibers are not strained
yet but the housing was tight. When the twist was moved back down the
fibers we also removed the tension on this housing.
Pictures taken after the twisting of the fiber optic cables was moved
back along the cable length. The black covers were stripped back and
the 'twist' moved back along the fiber run. Note that the fibers now
hang straight and there is plenty of free length to support the
twisting. We will need to add some rigid support that prevents the
fibers from drooping away from the fiberglass rod and allows the
fibers to entry the FIF with out any droop.
