Corning Cable Systems CamSplice Mechanical Splice is simple and craft-friendly for both multimode and single-mode fibers. It features a cam locking mechanism, which requires no adhesive. The CamSplice can be used with or without the Assembly Fixture.
The CamSplice Mechanical Splice incorporates a unique, patented fiber alignment method that self-centers the fibers and provides extremely accurate alignment. Average blind (non-tuned) splice loss for the CamSplice Mechanical Splice is specified at 0.15 dB with a minimum loss less than 0.3 dB. There is only one part for 250/250, 250/900 or 900/900 applications (one size fits all).
The CamSplice Mechanical Splice requires minimal training and few accessories to assemble. The assembly process involves stripping and cleaving fibers, inserting the fibers into the splice part until they touch and turning the cams to secure the fibers.
The process does not involve any adhesives or special tools, although an optional assembly fixture is recommended. A typical installation takes less than two minutes. A compact, self-contained tool kit is available with standard tools including the optional assembly fixture. Completed splices fit in Corning Cable Systems splice trays as well as industry-standard splice trays.
