The CT-30 Cleaver sets the standard for portable, reliable and ease of use. Available for either single fiber or ribbon splicing (up to 12 fiber ribbons) applications, the CT-30 Cleavers are compatible with all AFL fusion splicers.
AFL offers two types of ribbonizing tools to meet your needs.
The TJ-03 and TJ-24 joining tools provide a temporary fiber splice for fiber and cable connections to test equipment such as OTDRs.
The SpliceMate D900 has a unique design that significantly improves installation and repair operations for any 900µm application. Ideally suited for tactical fiber optic cable assemblies' (TFOCA) repair needs, the D900 is the industry-standard for simultaneously splicing two 900µm optical fibers. Its user-friendly graphical interface and automated features make it suitable for those with limited splicing experience.
AFL offers a wide selection of fiber protection sleeves to meet any application.
The CT-02 Pocket Cleaver is the ideal, low cost, solution for mechanical splicing and temporary terminations that don’t require the precision of a high end cleaver.
The CT-11A fiber optic cleaver provides high quality cleaving at an economical price. Designed for cleaving single fibers only, it can cleave optical fibers at an angle of up to 9 degrees or standard flat cleaving may be accomplished as well.
The ASW-02 Splicing Workstation provides a convenient method for both aerial and ground based splicing needs
The FST-12 Fiber Separation Tool is used to quickly, accurately and reliably split ribbons into sub-groups or individual fibers.
The SH-7 tube heater is a fast, light, and compact heat shrink oven for all Fujikura splice protection sleeves.
The HJS-02, HJS-03 and HJS-03-24 hot jacket strippers provide superior ribbon and field ribbonized stripping performance.
The paste holds the stripped coating residue into a single piece of debris that is easily cleaned from the stripper. If needed, the ribbon can be easily separated into individual fibers using alcohol.
The Portable Tripod Workstation offers both a sturdy work tray to support the splicer, cleaver and accessories, and a tripod to support the work tray. The two can be purchased together as a kit or separately for those users who prefer to use their own tripod or mounting mechanism.
