Duncan, S.C., December 2, 2010—AFL’s FAST connectors are factory pre-polished, field installable connectors that completely eliminate the need for hand polishing in the field.
Proven mechanical splice technology ensuring precision fiber alignment, a factory pre-cleaved fiber stub and a proprietary index-matching gel combine to offer an immediate low loss termination to either single-mode or multimode optical fibers.
FAST connectors are compatible with 250µm and 900µm optical fibers, as well as 900µm, 2mm, and 3mm cordage. All primary fiber types are supported, and each connector is color coded per industry standard requirements to aide in identification during and after installation.
A factory-installed wedge clip (included with each connector) is removed and discarded upon completion of the termination. Incorporated into this device is an innovative, translucent wedge enabling the use of a common VFI to provide a pass or fail signal once physical contact is achieved.
