Fiber optic cable splice
Corning Cable Systems CamSplice™ Mechanical Splice is recommended for indoor or outdoor through or branch splicing, transition splicing between listed and non-listed cables, pigtail splicing and is ideal for emergency restoration. Incorporating a unique fibre alignment mechanism that self-centers the fibres and provides accurate alignment, the CamSplice Mechanical Splice requires minimal training and few accessories to assemble. Average blind (non-tuned) splice loss is specified at 0.15 dB with a maximum loss less than 0.3 dB. The one-part-fits-all design accommodates 250/250 μm, 250/900 μm or 900/900 μm applications with an optional lead-in tube for securing 900 μm fibres. With no adhesive or epoxy required, the assembly process involves stripping and cleaving fibres, inserting the fibres into the splice part until they touch and turning the cams to secure the fibres. No special tools or polishing is required, although an optional assembly fixture is recommended and a self-contained tool kit is also available. A typical installation takes less than two minutes and the completed splices fit in Corning Cable Systems splice trays as well as industry-standard splice trays.
