AFL adds MPO splice-on connector to FuseConnect line

Sept. 19, 2011
Fusion-spliced, field-terminated connector is designed with only six components.

AFL has unveiled the FuseConnect MPO -- a fusion-spliced, field-terminated connector designed with only six components -- as the latest member of its FuseConnect series.

The FuseConnect MPO is part of the FuseConnect series of splice-on connectors, which include the SC, LC, ST, and FC. This product line requires a fusion splicer plus accessories for installation. The AFL FuseConnect MPO termination kit provides all the necessary accessories required for field termination of the FuseConnect MPO, AFL asserts.

The MPO connector features a factory pre-polished ferrule that obviates the need for polishing, adhesives, and crimping in the field and reduces connection errors, AFL says. Designed to Fiber Optic Connector Intermateability Standard (FOCIS), Type MPO, FOCIS 5, TIA 604 5 C, AFL's FuseConnect MPO performs as well as standard factory-terminated MPO/MTP assemblies, according to AFL. It is designed for use with ribbon and loose tube cable.

The connector can be used in RF-overlay FTTP networks, CATV backbone networks, outside plant, and MDU FTTP cabling applications. It also can be used for connector restoration, data, center installations and patch cord customizations.
