AFL Adds ST Connector to FuseConnect Product Line

2/22/2011

Spartanburg, SC – AFL has rounded out its FuseConnect product line by adding the ST connector, a fusion­spliced, field­terminated connector designed with just four components. All connectors – the SC, LC, FC, and now the ST – consist of a factory pre-polished ferrule. The field termination process eliminates polishing, adhesives, and crimping in the field, minimizing the potential for operator error and expensive connector scrap.

AFL's FuseConnect line utilizes a fusion splicer to terminate the connector in the field, addressing return loss concerns present in analog optical networks. Cable types include 900µm, 2mm and 3mm and polish types of UPC, APC, and PC. Ideal for connectorizations in RF­overlay FTTP networks, CATV backbone networks, outside plant, Fiber­to­the­Desk, and MDU FTTP cabling; central office connector replacement; and data center installation.
