AFL’s Apex splice closure is designed to lower overall installation time with easier-to-use sealing and cable retention methods.

Additional sizes with lower and higher capacities will be released in 2021.

The FlexScan OTDR is a pocket-sized, hand-held OTDR which provides fast, accurate fiber optic network characterization and fault location. Combining SmartAuto™ data acquisition with event analysis and intuitive LinkMap™ display, FlexScan enables technicians to quickly and easily troubleshoot faulty optical networks, or completely characterize newly installed networks.
