Siemon Unveils LightBow to Perk-up Fibre Termination Speed and Performance

by November 22, 2016 0 comments

Siemon, a global network infrastructure company, has announced the launch of its new LightBow fibre termination system in the Indian market, which continues to improve fibre termination speed and performance.

The new system features an exclusive patent-pending termination tool and pre-polished mechanical splice connectors that together reduce termination time, prevent fibre end face contamination and air gaps, and enable easy verification of termination quality.

It is ergonomically optimised for use in handheld or table-top orientation, the new LightBow  termination tool significantly reduces termination time by combining both splice activation and crimping in a single, optimised step and providing universal LC and SC connector compatibility with no time-consuming changeover.

It also features integrated LC and SC strip templates moulded right into the tool to ensure proper strip length of the fibre. To enhance connector performance, the tool’s alignment channels simplify fibre insertion, whilst its patent-pending bow feature maintains proper pressure of fibre ends during termination to eliminate air gaps. To further ensure reliability, the entire termination process is completed with the connector dust-cap in place, protecting the critical end face polish from contamination or damage.

For use with the tool, Siemon LightBow pre-polished mechanical splice connectors ship factory assembled to eliminate time-consuming field assembly of inner and outer connector bodies. Available in both LC and SC configurations, and in multimode and singlemode versions, the connectors feature a built-in verification window in the connector body for use with Siemon’s 0.5mW output power, Laser Class 1 visual fault locator (VFL).. This allows technicians to immediately verify a positive termination. Following termination verification, the new system offers the unique ability to adjust the fibre or re-terminate the connectors if needed.

The new LightBow termination tool is available in a complete kit with a convenient carrying case that contains all accessories required for high performance terminations, including Siemon’s 0.5 mW VFL with 2.5mm to 1.25mm universal connector adapter and precision cleaver with long-lasting blade that provides consistent, precise and high quality cleaves.
