Field Installable Mechanical Connector


The Field-Installable Fiber Connectors are easy-to-install connectors designed for fast, simple and reliable terminations of single mode fibers eliminating the need for fusion splicing. The pre-polished connectors are available with APC ferrules with other options available upon request.The FFC-100 connector is specifically designed for 250um, 900um, 2mm and 3mm fiber cable while the FFC-200 connector is designed for 250um, 900um, 2.0mm and 3.0 x 2mm flat fiber cables making these connectors an ideal solution for both outside plant and inside plant. The connectors are designed for installation by minimally skilled technicians with minimal fiber preparation tools (high precision cleaver) and the connectors are totally reusable in the event of a fiber breakage.

One of the most important and unique design considerations is the transparent body of the connector that allows the end-users to verify their installations easy, by inserting a visual fault locator (VFL) in one extremity and observe if there is the red light in some of the connectors; no light means a perfect connection and the connection is guaranteed insertion loss less than 0.1 dB (IL).
