Housing for Field Connector

SPARTANBURG, S.C., Feb. 12, 2010 — AFL Telecommunications, a division of Fujikura Ltd., is launching a keyed housing for its LC FuseConnect fusion splice field-terminated connector. Featuring just four components, the keyed LC housing uses the current FuseConnect LC design feature, swapping the standard LC housing with the keyed one to provide a secure network solution that is suitable for cable TV backbone network, fiber-to-the-desk, central office connector replacement and data center installation applications.

The housing is available in six different keying configurations, each with its own color designation. The physical keying feature inside the housing is designed to be compatible only with the same keyed color adapter configurations. Both LC keyed housings and adapters are tamper-proof, prevent unauthorized connections and will not connect with generic LC connectors or adapters.

With a factory pre-terminated and pre-polished ferrule end face, the connector eliminates the need for polishing, adhesives and crimping in the field. It uses a fusion splicer to terminate the connector, addressing the return loss concerns present in analog optical networks. This advanced process yields true angle polish connector performance of >65- dB return loss. Designed to work with an industry-standard 10-mm cleave length and with splicers that use a fiber holder system, FuseConnect is compatible not only with Fujikura's fusion splicers, but also with other industry-available fiber holder-based fusion splicing platforms.

The four-component structure eliminates the complexity associated with additional crimp ring parts, thereby virtually eliminating the crimping operation. The simplified field installation minimizes the potential for operator error and expensive connector scrap, even in difficult field environments or in exposed conditions at remote site locations.

The single-mode type is compliant with GR-326-CORE, and the multimode, with TIA/EIA568C.3.
