Robust field installable connectors are ideal for fast repair or in-the-field terminations to restore the network. Customized lengths are made possible with Quick LC.
Quick Fibre Terminations
Factory Polish Ferule
No polishing, no glue, simple and reliable

1. With Sumitomo standard tools and master plug. (Values include the mechanical splice joint between the fibre stub in the connector.
2. Not all semi buffer fibres are compatible with Q-LC. Prior evaluation is recommended.
3. Values quoted are using a nominal 8 degree angle cleaver. A 'flat' cleaver would be a minimum return loss of 35dB.
4. A fibre holder and guide tools is included in each pack of 10.
