Fujikura has greatly simplified the process of joining two fibres, therefore providing significant support for our customers in the construction of a FTTH network. Fujikura FAST connector is a series of field-installable connectors, which require no polishing. Unlike conventional field-installable connectors, FAST connector series do not employ an assembling tool but incorporate its own pre-assembled wedge launcher. The pre-assembled wedge launcher is a disposal part after installing fibre. Fujikura FAST connector uses a mechanism of “Push-pull-wedge,” which has been introduced by Fujikura’s Mechanical Splices. As the “Push-pull-wedge” mechanism achieves clamping both bare fibre part and coating part, this clamping mechanism enhances strength against fibre twist.
