ELASTOMERIC LAB SPLICE

The improved FIS Elastomeric Lab Splice is ideal for making temporary fiber connections and can be reused hundreds of times. To use the splice for instrument testing, simply insert a cleaved pigtail from OTDR or Power Meter and the cleaved unconnectorized fiber to be tested. Excellent for both Multimode and Singlemode fiber, the splice accepts fiber cladding diameters of 125µm to 140µm. The Lab Splices are supplied in blister packs of 6 (containing one of each color: pink, peach, yellow, green, blue and purple) or 12 (containing 2 of each color.)
