COTSWORKS, a manufacturer of rugged optical elements including active and passive components, is pleased to announce they will be showing samples of SpliceWORKS™ at the 2024 AAAA Summit, April 24-26th in Denver, Colorado.

SpliceWORKS™ is a rugged mechanical splice for harsh environments where the removal of the fiber cable is not an option to repair a break. An on-site repair can be accomplished in under 30 minutes when used with the field deployable kit which includes the equipment and material to perform the splice. The resulting splice has a pull-force rating equivalent to OEM cable construction, eliminating the splice as a weak or non-compliant point in the cable.

  • Glass capillary alignment mechanism providing low insertion loss (1.0 dB at 850nm)
  • Field use and cable repair accomplished quickly and only requiring a kit and a power cord
  • Rated operation –55°C to +105°C, 95% non-condensing humidity
  • Internal temperature and moisture coupon options available
