August 22, 2008 -- Senko Advanced Components has introduced its XP Fit Plus field installable connector.
The pre-polished, pre-assembled connector is compatible with the standard SC connector. 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 makes on site installations quick and easy, contends the company, diminishing the need for epoxy curing and hand polishing at the work site.
The XP Fit Plus comes with an assembly jig and fiber holder for 900-micron tight buffered fiber, making for an accurate alignment and fiber cleave when terminating the connector. Following the guides on the assembly jig and fiber holder, assembly is effortless.
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 CATV, telecommunication networks, multimedia, and some FTTX applications.
Available for use with the new connectors, SENKO's tool kit QST-02 includes a cleaver tool, fiber stripper, and cleaning materials.
