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
-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.
