AFL’s FuseConnect MPO fusion-spliced, field-terminated connectors feature just six components. With a factory prepolished ferrule, their field-termination process eliminates polishing, adhesives and crimping in the field. Compliant with Fiber Optic Connector Intermateability Standard (FOCIS), Type MPO, FOCIS-5 and TIA-604-5-C, the connectors perform as an equivalent to the standard factory-terminated MPO/MTP assemblies. They were designed to use either ribbon or loose tube cable, minimizing the complexity involved in the termination of a multifiber connection and enabling reliable and repeatable termination in field applications. Features include field MPO polarity customization, 3-mm round and optical fiber, and ribbon flat boots in each pack. Applications include connectorization in radio-frequency overlay fiber-to-the-premises networks.
