250-Micron Fiber Splicing Made Easy by 3M Tool

The 3M Fibrlok 250um fiber splice 2540G enables fast, easy splicing of 250-micron singlemode fiber in FTTP (Fiber-to-the-Premises) installations and in multimode enterprise installations where 250-micron coated fiber is spliced. This low-loss splice, with proven reliability, can be installed by nonspecialized technicians inside buildings or outdoors with little or no training. Several crews can be equipped for less than the cost of a single fusion splicer.

The Fibrlok 250um fiber splice is designed to be installed at the drop in fiber distribution terminals and optical network terminals outside and at fiber distribution units and wall outlets indoors. Millions of Fibrlok splices have proven their value in fiber-to-the-home installations in Asia where on-site splicing allows configuration of the fiber drop cable to meet the specific needs at the building.

This simple, rugged tool has a metallic splice element that locks the fibers in permanent alignment. It is portable, does not require electrical power and consistently exhibits low loss across environmental extremes.
