The MS201 mechanical splice features an updated core technology and simplified design that, when used with the KeyFibre KeyCleave cleaver, offers reflectance performance of Grade 1 specification at ≥ 60 dB. Thus, the MS201 offers the same performance as angled splices but at a lower capital investment, contends KeyFibre.

Meanwhile, average insertion loss is 0.03 dB. Further, the “light-design” functionality of KeyQuick splice range enables technicians to guarantee all the connections using a visual fault locator (VFL). No additional tester is needed to verify loss performance, KeyFibre asserts.
