Apr 25, 2007 8:00 AM
Corning Cable Systems, part of Corning’s telecommunications segment, has expanded its field-installable UniCam connector product line to include the UniCam Pretium-Performance connectors.
Corning Cable Systems’ UniCam connectors are no-epoxy, no-polish connectors that install quickly and easily in the field with a single no-consumables tool kit.
The new UniCam Pretium Tool Kit contains a new handheld installation tool and a high-performance, diamond-blade cleaver that virtually eliminates human variability from installation, says Corning Cable Systems. With the new tool kit, UniCam Pretium-Performance connectors can be installed in about 45 seconds.
As with all of its UniCam connectors, every Pretium-Performance connector is 100 percent guaranteed to meet the published specification at the time of installation, says Corning Cable Systems, or the company will replace it.
With multimode UniCam Pretium-Performance connectors, the improved optical performance can be achieved when installing with either the new Pretium Tool Kit or the “classic” UniCam Tool Kit. Due to the precise requirements of single-mode fiber, UniCam Pretium-Performance Single-mode connectors must be terminated using the new Pretium Tool Kit to achieve the enhanced attenuation and operating temperature specifications.
