Leviton has announced the addition of the LYNX cleaver to its selection of fiber termination tools. The cleaver is designed to perform high precision cleaves required for fusion and mechanical splicing. It works with both 250 µm coated and 900 µm buffered fibers. A cleave angle of 90 degrees +/- 0.5 degrees is guaranteed, and the 16-position blade allows for approximately 48,000 cleaves. The LYNX also includes a built-in waste holder.
The cleaver can be purchased individually or as part of two FastCAM Tool Kits: one includes the cleaver, lint free dry wipes, alcohol pads, and a jacket stripper, while the second includes the cleaver, work tray and gooseneck LED, dry wipes, alcohol pads, and a jacket stripper. The work tray and LED are also offered separately.
