AFL Launches FuseConnect Fusion Splice Field Connector

2/12/2008

Spartanburg, SC - Featuring just four components, AFL's FuseConnect fusion-splice field-terminated connector is uniquely designed and easy to use.. With a factory pre-terminated end-face, its innovative field termination process eliminates the need for polishing, adhesives and crimping in the field.

The FuseConnect utilizes a fusion splicer to terminate the connector, addressing return loss concerns present in analog optical networks. This advanced process yields true APC performance of >65dB return loss in an SC/APC configuration. Designed to work with a 10mm cleave length and with splicers that utilize a fiber holder system, FuseConnect is compatible not only with Fujikura’s fusion splicers, but also with other industry-available fiber holder-based fusion splicing platforms

The four-component structure of FuseConnect eliminates the complexity associated with additional crimp ring parts, thereby virtually eliminating the crimping operation. The simplified field installation minimizes the potential for operator error and expensive connector scrap, even in difficult field environments or in exposed conditions at remote site locations.
