Cabling Contractor Best Practice: Selecting the Best Fiber Termination for Bottom Line Profitability


  • Optimal Alignment - Alignment channels simplify fiber insertion and prevent damage to fiber end face
  • Integrated Strip Template - LC and SC strip template on tool ensures proper strip lengths
  • Fast, Robust Process - Combines both splice activation and mechanical crimping to significantly reduce termination time
  • Oil Dampening System - Allows the blade to cleave at a uniform speed eliminating user variance
  • Precision Cleaver - Provides consistent, precise and high quality cleaves
  • Safety - Integrated collection bin eliminates handling of cleaved fiber
  • Long Lasting Blade - Allows for 48,000 cleaves
