PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: NEW FITEL SPLICE-ON CONNECTORS Back to Top

FITEL Introduces New Splice On Connector System


by Steve Harris
Furukawa America Logo

Furukawa America Inc., the leading supplier of FITEL® fiber optic equipment in the Americas, has introduced a new splice on connector termination system that provides users with a remarkably fast and easy to use field-installable connector.

FITEL’s innovative splice-on-connector product consists of a factory-polished ferrule with a pre-cleaved fiber stub along with a high-strength, snap-on connector assembly. The FITEL splice-on-connector does not require polishing. The termination process does not use epoxy or special heaters which results in a dramatically reduced termination time of less than three minutes. The process is simple with little to no learning curve and most importantly ensures a high quality termination. Unlike mechanical and field polished connectors, the splice-on-connector has consistent performance that is not user dependent.

Splice On Connector Package

FITEL’s splice-on-connector product eliminates the guess work involved when using preterminated jumpers for installation applications. The splice-on-connector allows the operator to customize the termination length so that slack storage can be greatly reduced or eliminated. It also eliminates the splice tray required when splicing on pigtails which significantly reduces the fiber management involved for the installation. Furthermore this method allows installers to reduce the costs associated with maintaining various lengths of preterminated jumpers, splice trays, and slack storage enclosures.

In the central office the splice-on-connector proves to be an invaluable tool. You can use the FITEL splice-on-connector to replace your damaged or antiquated connector with a modern SC or FC connection. The product also allows operators to build custom length jumpers, which proves to be very beneficial in this environment.

Splice On Connectors

FITEL’s connector termination system features high quality, GR-326 tested and approved Seikoh Giken connectors, long known for their strength, durability and reliability.

Single-mode and Multimode connectors are available as follows:
SC/UPC; 250um, 900um, 2mm, 3mm
SC/APC; 250um, 900um, 2mm, 3mm
FC/UPC; 250um, 900um, 2mm, 3mm
FC/APC; 250um, 900um, 2mm, 3mm
