Siemon has been holding a nationwide contest to see which of their Certified Installer partners can perform the fastest field termination of an LC fiber connector using their new LightBow Mechanical Splice Fiber Termination system - and when they saw a new record of just 32.17 seconds, they thought they might have their winner.Then they received a 27.95 second entry. . .Then 23.52 seconds. . .Then a new record of just 21.07 seconds! (and that time includes all termination steps – starting with unprepped, un-stripped fiber and ending with a fully functional, ready-to-use connector). You can see the actual termination video for yourself at: http://www.siemon.com/us/contractors/march-madness/standings.asp
So yes, you can field terminate fiber in under 30 seconds.
The key to all that speed is LightBow’s exclusive patent-pending termination tool, which dramatically reduces termination time by combining both splice activation and crimping in a single, optimized step and providing universal LC and SC connector compatibility with no time-consuming changeover.
And you can do it reliably
To deliver superior consistent performance, the LightBow tool simplifies fiber insertion with its patent-pending bow feature, which maintains proper pressure on fiber ends during termination to eliminate air gaps. To further ensure reliability, the entire termination process is completed with the connector dust-cap in place, protecting the critical end face polish from contamination or damage.
