Clearfield has added CraftSmart Splice-on Connectors (SOC) to its product portfolio of above- and below-grade field enclosures that provide full optimization of fiber deployment when used alongside Clearfield’s FieldSmart platform of inside plant fiber panels, outside plant cabinets and wall boxes.

In situations where a factory terminated fiber assembly isn’t possible, the CraftSmart SOC provides the solution. Common applications include field restoration of a broken fiber or when the customer is using media that is expensive and/or difficult to store. In these cases, the customer prefers to cut the media to exact length for his purposes and then use the CraftSmart Splice-on Connector. The Clearfield advantage is that the protection splice sleeve is directly under the boot, making the routing of the terminated end easier.

The CraftSmart SOC is available in all industry standard connectors, including SC, SC APC and LC UPC. Pre-polished and pre-cleaved, the CraftSmart SOC is packaged with all required connector components needed to splice a connector onto a 900um fiber in the field. CraftSmart Splice-on Connectors require the use of a fusion splicer with removable splice holders.
