AFL Expands FuseConnect Line to Include LC Connector

Spartanburg, SC - Uniquely designed and featuring just four components, AFL's FuseConnect fusion-splice field terminated connectors are now available in LC for 900µm and 2mm cable. With a factory pre-polished end-face, the connector's 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. Designed to work with a 10mm cleave length and splicers utilizing 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.

Formerly available in SC only, the FuseConnect LC product is now available in single-mode and multimode fiber: 62.55µm, 50µm, and 50µm 10 GIG (OM3). The 900µm FuseConnect LC is designed to work with the standard heater embedded in a Fujikura fusion splicer or an external heater, similar to the FuseConnect SC. The FuseConnect LC is designed to meet or exceed TIA/EIA 568C.3 and TIA/EIA-604-10A (FOCIS 10) requirements.
