Panduit simplifies fiber cabling installation with OptiCam 2.0; updated field termination tool also calculates insertion loss

May 16, 2017
“OptiCam 2.0 changes the fiber termination market,” asserts Dennis Renaud, vice president of Panduit’s Enterprise business.

Panduit claims to have "revolutionized field-terminated fiber connectivity" with the introduction of its updated, more simple-to-use OptiCam 2.0 termination tool. According to the company, "The tool delivers an immediate calculated insertion loss, which improves productivity by shortening the time installers spend on the jobsite and increases contractor profitability by decreasing project re-work."

As stated by a product press release, "An on-tool display walks users through a three-step termination process, with no complicated series of buttons, knobs and levers. It provides an immediate insertion loss value, along with a pass/fail readout, so installers know they have achieved a successful termination the first time. A companion app mirrors the display screen and collects a robust set of data points that can be used for project and business management."

“OptiCam 2.0 changes the fiber termination market,” asserts Dennis Renaud, vice president of Panduit’s Enterprise business. “We have made fiber termination so simple and reliable that it will change the way contractors work, bid jobs, and manage projects. We have a vested interest in the success of the contractor community and we are confident OptiCam 2.0 will help them be successful.”

As cited by Panduit, "among the tool’s features are an ergonomic design that easily converts between left- and right-handed operation; color-coded cradles and patch cords to ease setup; and a pivoting cradle arm to make it easier to load connectors."

The tool works with Panduit LC, SC, and ST OptiCam fiber-optic connectors. The company adds, "If the installer isn’t satisfied with the termination results on the first try, the termination can be easily reversed and retried, reusing the same connector. In comparison, other connectors on the market would have to be discarded and a new connector installed."

The new tool is optimized for use with other Panduit fiber solutions including the company's HDFlex fiber cabling system, PanMPO fiber connectors, and Signature Core fiber cabling. For more information on the OptiCam 2.0 termination tool, visit
