March 9, 2009 -- At OFC/NFOEC 2009, Senko Advanced Components will showcase its newest product, the XP Fit Plus LC field installable connector.

"We first put out the XP Fit Plus field installable connector for SC applications and experienced a really good response from our clients, who expressed an interest in having the same equipment for LC uses. We set our engineers to work and made it happen," comments Jeff Gniadek, Senko product manager. We now offer the XP Fit Plus LC field installable connector for singlemode and multimode applications."

The XP Fit Plus LC field installable connector is sold in packages of ten connectors which are pre-assembled and attached to a wedge plate ready to be terminated using an assembly fixture and fiber guide/holder. Following the guides on the assembly fixture and fiber holder, assembly is simple. Once the fiber is pushed into the connector and a click is heard, the job is complete and the connector is ready for use in telecom, datacom, industrial, and multimedia applications.

In place of epoxy, an internal mechanical grip gently but effectively holds the fiber in place and can be installed in under two minutes. Without polishing or adhesives, the XP Fit Plus LC field installable connector makes on site installations quick and easy, diminishing the need for epoxy curing and hand polishing at the work site.

Each XP Fit Plus LC field installable connector ten pack comes with step-by-step instructions, one fixture base and one fiber guide holder which can be discarded after completing 10 XP Fit Plus LC terminations.
