Mechanical Splicing

Corning Cable Systems CamSplice™ Mechanical Splice is recommended for indoor or outdoor through or branch splicing, transition splicing between listed and non-listed cables, pigtail splicing and is ideal for emergency restoration. Incorporating a unique fiber alignment mechanism that self-centers the fibers and provides accurate alignment, the CamSplice Mechanical Splice requires minimal training and few accessories to assemble. Average "blind" (non-tuned) splice loss is specified at 0.15 dB with a maximum loss less than 0.3 dB.

The one-part-fits-all design accommodates 250/250μm, 250/900μm or 900/900μm applications with an optional lead-in tube for securing 900 μm fibers. With no adhesive or epoxy required, 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. No special tools or polishing is required, although an optional assembly fixture is recommended and a self-contained tool kit is also available. A typical installation takes less than two minutes and the completed splices fit in Corning Cable Systems splice trays as well as industry-standard splice trays.
