AFL Launches Installation Video for FuseConnect SC and LC Connectors

Spartanburg, SC – June 2, 2014 – AFL released a new instructional video for AFL’s SC and LC FuseConnect connectors including step-by-step instructions that demonstrate the termination of a 3 mm SC FuseConnect connector using a Fujikura 70S fusion splicer.

Uniquely designed to feature four to five components, AFL’s FuseConnect fusion-spliced, field installable connectors feature a factory pre-polished ferrule, eliminating the need for polishing, adhesives and crimping in the field, and minimizing the potential for operator error and expensive connector scrap. Applications include:

> Connectorization in
-RF-overlay FTTP networks
-Cable TV backbone networks
-Outside plant
-MDU FTTP cabling

>Data center installation

>Central office connector replacement

AFL’s FuseConnect connectors utilize a fusion splicer to terminate the connector in the field, addressing return loss concerns present in analog optical networks. This advanced process yields true APC performance for SC/APC and LC/APC configurations, and is compliant to GR-326-CORE. FuseConnect is compatible with Fujikura fusion splicers and most other fiber holder-based fusion splicing platforms.
