FieldShield FLEXdrop Pushable Connectors are factory terminated and polished SC and LC connectors designed to be terminated on simplex FieldShield Pushable Optical Fiber Assemblies. After being pushed or pulled through FieldShield Microduct, the smooth wall protective sleeve is easily removed and an outer housing is snapped into place. This creates an industry standard connector without mechanical or fusion splicing. All SC and LC FieldShield Pushable Connector styles can be pushed/pulled in all FieldShield Microducts.
