Belden has announced the addition of FiberExpress Brilliance Field-Installable SC Multimode Connectors for 900 micron fiber termination. According to the company, the design and implementation is such that terminations can typically be made in less than five seconds, with no termination tools required.

The design of the new Fiber Express Brilliance Connector enables contractors to terminate a tight buffered fiber in just three simple steps: Insert the fiber into the connector; using the index finger, slide the connector’s switch-like activator toward the fiber to be terminated to bring about the splice/crimp; slide the boot on the connector body.

This fiber installation procedure is accomplished without using any specific or proprietary installation tools. The built-in activator performs the fiber splicing and crimping action within the connector, thus reducing the number of steps involved by 50% (as compared with most field-installable connectors).
