Dia. 3.0mm x 60mm(L) ULTRAsleeve Fusion Protection Sleeve
This 3.0mm(dia.) x 60mm(L) ULTRAsleeve is designed for protection of over 12mm strip length fusion splices and is blue colored.
This sleeve can accept a range of fiber buffer sizes 250-900µm for a single fiber or up to a 4 fused ribbon fiber.
The sleeve is easy to install and requires no heat shrink, curing, crimping or gluing. It is manufactured with an acrylic foam tape to seal against environmental conditions and improve long term splice reliability.
The impact resistant plastic housing has two sections that fold along a hinge.They are delivered in an open position, ready to accept the fused fiber - simply load the fused fiber and close the sleeve. This process secures the protector and compresses the acrylic foam providing a hermetic seal to protect the fused fiber.
Sleeves are applied after the fibers are fused, eliminating the need to prethread the fiber into a tube providing easy installation and preventing stress damage to splice joint.
ULTRAsleeve splice protectors can be closed by hand, but when installing large quantities of ULTRAsleeve protectors, this closing tool is invaluable. Please check P/N FSCT1 for this tool.
