By Telecom Lead Team: Vytran has launched CFC-400-SMA, an optical fiber
cleaver. The fiber cleaver is designed to efficiently create a
high-performance, clean fiber end face on an optical fiber mounted in
an SMA-905 connector.
The new CFC-400-SMA is specifically
devised to accommodate fibers mounted in SMA-905 connectors. It is ideal for
high-volume cleaving applications in markets ranging from medical and fiber
laser to telecommunications.
Vytran’s new CFC-400-SMA is aimed at
replacing the long and costly polishing process that is currently used for
grooming the end of an optical fiber that has been mounted in a connector.
CFC-400-SMA creates a high-quality
cleave with a polish-like finish in a fraction of a second. There is no
polishing residue and therefore no post-processing necessary,” said Jean-Michel
Pelaprat, Vytran president and CEO.
Vytran will demonstrate CFC-400-SMA
at the Photonics West 2012 exhibition from January 24th through the
26th and at the associated BiOS exhibition January 21st and
22nd in San Francisco, California.
