Xpress™ Termination Kit from Molex Offers Quick and Easy Terminations for Optical Local Area Networks
LISLE, Ill. – June 9, 2005 – The Xpress™ Termination Kit from Molex Incorporated offers fast and reliable LC, SC and ST connector terminations for optical Local Area Networks (LANs). With an operational temperature from –10º to +60º C, the Xpress Termination Kit is ideal for use with indoor applications, such as bare fiber device testing, and datacommunication systems, such as LANs, data networks and fiber restoration.
The Xpress Termination Kit is electricity-free, making termination fast and easy. Complete with 12 connectors, adhesive, accelerant, stripping template and an abbreviated termination procedure, it provides a complete solution with the convenience of a multi-connector pack. Requiring minimal time and effort, the kit installs in approximately three minutes, up to 50 percent faster than standard heat cured connector processes. By applying a drop of accelerant onto the connector endface and placing the adhesive directly onto the fiber, the user creates an almost instantaneous bond between the fiber and ceramic ferrule. Plus, the adhesive does not require measuring, mixing, an applicator or heat curing, which also allows for faster installation time.
“Many standard termination kits require additional fixturing or specialized tooling, which can be costly and involve additional time,” said Dave Rifkin, product marketing manager, Molex Incorporated. “The Xpress Termination Kit offers a reliable solution that includes everything from connectors to a quick, low-maintenance adhesive, and uses standard fiber optic assembly tooling, all of which save our customers time and applied costs.”
The Xpress Termination Kit offers a dependable solution at an affordable cost. Lead-time is up to two weeks.
