500 terminations of the VF-45 Socket per consumables are included in the kit. Individual replacement of consumables and hand tools are available. 99% Reagent Grade Isopropyl Alcohol purchased separately.

Storage temperature: -40†­ to 60†­C (-40†­ to 140†­F)

The hand tools included in the kit are used to prepare Volition Optical Fiber Cable by stripping duplex fibers simultaneously for termination with VF-45 sockets. Simultaneous duplex termination saves labor and speeds installation, resulting in complete terminations in less than two minutes.

The Polishing Puck Assembly, Polishing Station Base and Lapping Film provide for fiber end-face preparation to the specified length and finish for termination with VF-45 sockets, with as little as five back-and-forth strokes per termination.

The Swabs and Wipes are used for cleaning, while the View Scope is used for inspection of the optical fibers following the termination process, ensuring a high yield of VF-45 terminations for high performance.

When planning large installations, calculate 500 terminations of the VF-45 socket per package of:
Lapping Film 5 Sheets
Cotton Swabs 100 Swabs
Lint Free Wipes 100 Sheets

The Puck Polishing Face will wear slightly over hundreds of terminations and is replaceable when needed.

The Scribe Blade Assembly will wear with use. Typical cleave button life is 2,500 terminations. The cleave button edge may wear prematurely due to harsh handling or stressful conditions. The Scribe Blade Assembly is available separately.
