According to 3M, its Crimplok+Connector tool “is the first-known commercially available FTTx field-mounted connector for 900 µm single-mode fiber that meets indoor and outdoor performance requirements without a splice, gel or adhesive.”

Company literature says the SC-compatible Crimplok+ Connector combines the best attributes of mechanical splice connectors with the performance of fusion splice-on connectors. 

The Crimplok+ Connector is thermally balanced and is tested for indoor and outdoor FTTx and premises application conditions from -40° F to 167° F. The APC version of the connector maintains optical reflections of less than -60 dB. In addition, the connectors are RoHS-compliant.

3M is offering a promotion for a free Crimplok+ Connector Kit. A purchase of 300 or more Crimplok+ Connectors by June 30 qualifies the buyer for a free kit, worth approximately $1,700  for (for more information, click here).
