AFL is introducing fiber fanout kits to route 250 µm fibers into 900 µm buffer tubes ready for termination. The fanout kits feature a clear outer body and large diameter fiber entry holes.

AFL uses a clear plastic outer body to assist in network troubleshooting. Signal attenuation can now be induced at the outer fibers within the body of a fanout kit at the time of installation. The clear body allows for the escaping red light of the VFL to be identified without manipulating the product.

The fanout kits also feature a clear outer body that is slit in order to slip over the installed buffer tube, slide up and over the frame, and lock into position. With a new stacking feature, multiple fanout kits can be placed on top of each other, reducing the amount of space used in the back of fiber management panels.

Another design element incorporated into the fanout kits is an increased opening that creates a conical funnel to speed the process of placing fibers within the tubes. The kits are designed to accommodate input cables from 2.0 - 3.8 mm in diameter. Color-coded 900 µm buffer tubes allow for easy identification of individual fiber channels.
