CraftSmart Splice-On Connectors come with all the required connector components to splice a connector onto a 900 μm fiber in the field.

In situations where a factory terminated fiber assembly isn’t possible, the CraftSmart Spice- On Connector provides the solution for consistent performance. Common applications include field restoration of a broken fiber or when the customer is using media that is expensive and/or difficult to store. In these cases, the customer prefers to cut the media to exact length for his purposes and then use the CraftSmart Splice-On Connector. The Clearfield ® advantage is that the protection splice sleeve is directly under the boot, making the routing of the terminated end easier.

The CraftSmart Spice-On Connector is available in all industry standard connectors, including SC/UPC, SC/APC and LC/UPC. The Spice-On Connector meets, and even exceeds industry standard insertion and return loss. Pre-polished and pre-cleaved, the CraftSmart Spice-On Connector is packaged with all required connector components needed to splice a connector onto a 900 μm fiber in the field. CraftSmart Splice-on Connectors require the use of a fusion splicer with removable splice holders.
