Benefits / Features


Ideal for FTTH construction sites such as closures and in-home terminal connections.  With APC polishing, it can achieve a return loss of more than 60 dB. It also gives superior environmental resistance than the mechanical splice type field assembly connector.

Assemble connectors quickly and easily

Simply insert the fiber into the specialized connector part, position it using the jig, then polish using the draw string operated polishing tool.  The assembly is complete with just 3 easy steps!

Manually operated tool, does not need batteries

Polishing liquid and water are not needed, and one drawstring pull takes about 20 seconds. Since the kit’s dedicated ferrule end face is pre-polished, APC polish is complete with only 1 time and PC with 2 times.

Excellent Optical Properties & Environmental Resistance

A high return loss of 40 dB or more for PC type and 60 dB or more for APC type, and a connection loss of less than 0.5 dB is realized. Unlike the mechanical splice type, it does not use a refractive index matching agent, so it has excellent environmental resistance.
