The new Xpress Termination Kit from Molex Inc. offers fast and reliable LC, SC and ST connector terminations for optical Local Area Networks (LANs). Providing a complete solution, the kit contains 12 connectors, adhesive, accelerant, stripping template and an abbreviated termination procedure.

Requiring minimal time and effort, the kit installs in approximately three minutes, up to 50 percent faster than standard heat cured connector processes, said the company, and does not require additional fixturing or specialized tooling. By applying a drop of accelerant onto the connector end face and placing the adhesive directly onto the fiber, the user creates an almost instantaneous bond between the fiber and ceramic ferrule, according to the company. Plus, the adhesive does not require measuring, mixing, an applicator or heat curing, which also allows for faster installation time. With an operational temperature from -10C to 60C, the termination kit is suitable for use with indoor applications such as bare fiber device testing, and datacommunication systems such as LANs, data networks and fiber restoration.

Pricing of the kits ranges from $37 to $62 for a pack of 12, depending on connector style. Delivery is two weeks.
