Panduit said the SC OPTICAM pre-polished fiber-optic connectors provide field termination in less than half the time of field polish connectors. In addition, with it re-termination capability yield rates are approaching 100 percent.

Designed for behind-the-wall and main, and intermediate cross-connect installations, these OPTICAM fiber-optic connectors feature a dual-cam design that secures both the fiber and buffer in one action to ensure consistent terminations and to reduce termination time. In addition, the factory pre-polished fiber stub endface eliminates field polishing to reduce installation costs, labor, scrap and the number of tools required, said the company.

A single OPTICAM termination tool is used to terminate the pre-polished connectors. It features an integrated visual fault locator for visual indication of proper termination after the cam step has been completed. Together, these features are said to virtually eliminate operator error and deliver yield rates approaching 100% for lower installed costs.

Part numbers fscmcxaq (SC 10Gbit); fscmc5bl (50/125m) and fscmc6bl (62.5/125m) are priced at $18.85, 17.93 and14.24 each, respectively. Delivery is five days.
