SEPTEMBER 15, 2009 -- Fujikura Europe plans to expand its FAST Series Connector portfolio, debuting 2- and 3-mm ST (Straight Tip) type versions for the first time at ECOC.
The new ST type connectors are designed for multimode, LAN, and CCTV applications and follow Fujikura’s previous introduction of 2- and 3-mm connectors with SC and LC versions last year.
The Fujikura FAST (Field Assembly with Simple Technique) Series is designed to offer installers assembly in five easy steps: stripping the fiber, cleaning, cleaving, fiber insertion, and release of a disposable wedge tool to achieve the completion of assembly.
The key features include:
- Connector termination in less than 60 seconds
- No epoxy
- Termination to both 0.25-mm and 0.9-mm θ fiber
- No specialized tooling or training needed
- Low insertion loss and back reflection
The FAST connectors cater to 250-micron and 900-micron singlemode and multimode fiber. They were all designed with simplicity in mind.
