AFL’s SpliceConnect is a mechanical splice that provides
an inexpensive, quick alternative to mating fibers.
Using V-groove technology, this splice maintains
physical contact between the fibers. An assembly tool is
used to ensure the fibers are mated correctly, resulting
in <0.1 dB insertion loss (typical for single-mode). The
SpliceConnect secures both fiber and coating
independently with the U-shaped sleeve, enhancing the
strength against fiber twist.
