Apex™ X-2 Sealed Splice Closure

The Apex X-2 is a sealed splice closure designed for protecting optical fiber splices in bothabove- or below-grade applications in a butt configuration. The Apex X-2 is capable of up to432 single fusion, 864 mass fusion with standard ribbon, or 3456 (200 µm, 1728 max for 250µm) mass fusion with “rollable ribbon” fiber types such as AFL’s SpiderWeb Ribbon® (SWR®).Cables are sealed by a unique wedge system spaced evenly around the circumference of theclosure’s base. Each cable seal is opened by a press-to-release lever and sealing is completedby actuating a single screw for each cable. Each cable is sealed individually, ensuring originalcraftsmanship when cables may be added at a later date. Up to 6 splice trays are attached andhinge off a central organizer.

Fujikura 90S Fusion Splicer

The 90S is the latest core alignment splicer from Fujikura. It’s designed to give you high quality splices and to stay in the field. The 90S kit solves common problems seen in the field today, from splicing poor quality legacy fiber to automated equipment maintenance and upkeep. Regardless of your scenario, the 90S is designed to keep you going with an extended battery life of 300 splice and heat cycles, and by alleviating the need for traditional operation tasks such as; frequent arc calibrations, cleaver blade rotations, cleaver usage tracking, and manual splicing operations with its multiple automated and ease-of-use features. A redesigned work tray, cooling tray, and optional cable clamp make the 90S kit more versatile than any of its predecessors in adapting to varying work conditions and environments. In addition, if you are splicing loose buffer fiber, there is no longer a need to purchase and swap out with an additional sheath clamp.

Fujikura 90R Fusion Splicer

The Fujikura 90R is the mass fusion splicer workhorse of the splicing world. As data demand continues to rise, the solution to handle the increased traffic is to increase fiber counts. As a result, fiber counts being utilized in enterprise data centers, campus, and metro networks have grown enough to make single fiber splicing too costly and timely. High density cabling made possible by SpiderWeb Ribbon® (SWR) and others like it are spurring ribbon splicing activity in places that have traditionally used loose fiber. The 90R is the answer to these changes in splicing demand. With automated splice start, tube heater, wind protector, cleave tracking, and blade rotations for up to 2 cleavers at a time, this splicer frees up operator time for other fiber preparation steps. New to the 90R, you can keep your splicer in the field longer with field replaceable V-grooves. When V-grooves can no longer be cleaned after extended use, or are accidentally damaged, you can resume splicing in minutes by installing the spare set included with your 90R kit.

AFL SpiderWeb Ribbon Cable

Wrapping Tube Cable (WTC), with SpiderWeb Ribbon® (SWR), is an ultra-high density outside plant cable designed specifically for fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) or access markets. It is compliant with the latest issue of the outside plant cable standard, Telcordia GR-20. With an ultra-high density and a new ribbon technology called SpiderWeb Ribbon, WTC provides the smallest cable diameter and lowest weight, high-fiber count ribbon cable in the industry. The WTC-SWR cable is available with 144 fibers to 1,728 fibers in the armored option and up to 3,456 fibers in the non-armored configuration.
SWR is a bonded fiber ribbon design allowing for either a highly efficient ribbon splicing or an individual fiber breakout splicing process. This flexibility allows for a single cable design to cover a diverse set of applications from access networks to high-fiber count mass fusion splicing. With the ability to roll and conform, the SWR provides for ultra-high density packaging in the WTC.

NodeFLEX™ Bendable Cable Assembly

The AFL NodeFLEX cable assemblies are used to link the Optical Distribution Network (ODN) to Hybrid Fiber-Coaxial (HFC) Nodes. The NodeFLEX fitting includes a flexible boot with integrated steel wires that allow installers to flex the boot to an angle up to 90° and hold that position for applications where 90° entry is required. This eliminates the need for separate straight and 90° node cables, thus reducing inventory and ordering complexity. The SCTE 5/8-24 UNEF threaded fitting of the assembly provides a water-tight seal for up to 3 meters of static waterhead. The fitting materials are machined from stainless steel to ensure long life in the outside plant environment.
