PermLock™ Fiber Optic Mechanical Splicing Toolkit
The PermLock™ Fiber Optic Mechanical Splice is the latest technology to connect two fibers easily and reliably without the use of fusion splicing. Designed for aerospace applications, it offers a hazard-free environment, absence of spark, high voltage, and heat. Moreover the glass sealed splice offers low optical loss, wide-temperature operation, 25-year service life, and low cost of ownership. The patent pending design enables fiber self-alignment with high repeatability. A “light-bridging” material fills the fiber gap for stable, ultra low loss splice. Optowares supplies a hand-held and battery powered curing kit for quick and easy cleave and splicing, even with polyimide coating fiber. PermLockTM Fiber Optic Splice has passed the most stringent aerospace qualification. The splice has several outer-jacket options suited for various applications. This product is well suited for applications in aerospace, shipboard/submarine, mining, and communication networks, as well as field optical fiber repair and fiber-to-home installation.
