Complete Connect re-deployable fibre cabling offer customers easy to use, easy to transport and easy to remove fibre links.

Choice of product
  • Military tactical, CST or loose tube cables
  • Choice of reel
  • Customised travel cases
Higher Performance
  • Machine polished connectors for consistent high finish
  • Singlemode ferrules used in all multimode cables
  • Solid patch panel gland pre-attached
Termination and manufacturing
  • High quality connectors are terminated directly onto each fibre core
  • Polished on a multi-stage machine process to give the best insertion and return losses
  • The 250um loose tube fibres are over-sheathed with 2mm furcation tubing to create “patch cord” style tails for easy handling

The connectors are protected in a strong pulling tube which is robustly attached to the fibre sheath and aramid yarn strength member.

All pre-terminated multi-core fibre cables are made to order.

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.

Optical and Physical Specifications

Multimode (OM2, OM3 and OM4) Connector Types

LC simplex or duplex / SC simplex or duplex / FC simplex / ST simplex

All multimode pre-terminated cables use singlemode ferrules to achieve a higher optical performance.
A singlemode ferrule is manufactured to a higher specification and so achieves a lower loss.
We recommend using multimode patch cords that are made using singlemode ferrules to ensure the best performance.
