Complete Connect pre – terminated tight buffered fibre cables offer customers the best possible performance and easy installation. High quality connectors, a robust gland, strong pulling sock and triple flange reel enable easy installation and high optical performance.

Termination and Installation Process

High quality connectors are terminated directly onto each fibre core (no splicing involved) and polished on a multi-stage machine process to give the best insertion and return losses. The connectors are protected in a strong pulling tube which is robustly attached to the fibre sheath and aramid yarn strength member.

Each connector is ready (after cleaning using a recognised cleaning tool) to plug into a patch panel or breakout box coupler/adaptor. The cable is fixed into the panel using the pre-attached gland nut. Colour coded fibres ensure correct polarity management.

Suggested Configuration

In order to be able to include a strong pulling sock over the connectors and also to minimise the diameter of this sock to enable easy installation, the standard configuration for Complete Connect pre-terminated fibre is to stagger the fibre tails in pairs at 5 cm intervals.

The first pair is at 30cm from the patch panel gland nut. This is done to ensure that there is enough fibre to remove any undo stress of tight bends on the fibre inside the panels.
