Fast deployment and superior reliability are of the utmost importance in today’s fiber networks. While fiber field terminations offer the flexibility to meet a variety of installation scenarios, they need to be quick and easy while ensuring consistently high performance connections.
With its patent-pending termination tool and pre-polished mechanical splice connectors, the LightBow Fiber Optic Termination System significantly reduces termination time, prevents fiber end face contamination and air gaps, and enables easy verification of termination quality.
With universal LC/SC compatibility, the LightBow tool simplifies fiber insertion and avoids end face damage when terminating LightBow pre-polished mechanical splice connectors
LightBow Pre-Polished Connectors
Combined with Siemon’s exclusive patent-pending LightBow termination tool, Siemon LightBow pre-polished mechanical splice connectors can be deployed with unsurpassed termination speed and quality via a built-in VFL verification window and the ability to adjust or reterminate.
Available in both LC and SC configurations, these connectors support both multimode and singlemode versions of Siemon’s XGLO and LightSystem solutions
