Wirewerks Splice-on Connector, LC/UPC, 2/3mm, Blue Boot

Wirewerks Optical Fiber Splice-On Connectors combine the performance and reliability advantages of fusion splicing with the flexibility and on-site termination benefits of field-installable connectors. Wirewerks Splice-On Connectors are compatible with any 2-3mm OD single fiber cable and are available in LC and SC connector formats in either APC or UPC ferrule polishing styles. The Splice-On Connector utilizes just two components - a connector and a pre-crimped Kevlar rope that is mechanically merged to the cable. Our two-component approach simplifies installation, maximizes yield, and delivers the superior strain relief properties of a factory-terminated fiber patch cord in a field-terminated connector. Additionally, Wirewerks Splice-On Connectors are compatible with any fusion splicer and eliminate the need for expensive crimping tools, splicer jigs, index matching gels, and splice trays/enclosures; providing cost effective, reliable solutions for fusion-spliced field fiber termination.
