The least expensive of all Corning Cable Systems cleavers, the FBC-001 is adequate (= 2°) for cleaving fiber ends for OTDR access (through a lab splice or XYZ stage), multimode and single-mode mechanical splicing, and UniCam® Connector installation.
This cleaver provides smooth, flat, perpendicular fiber end-faces (typically < 0.7°) necessary for low-loss fusion or mechanical splicing. Fast and easy to use, it produces high-quality, repeatable cleaves for multimode and single-mode fibers in one simple step. The unit cleaves all 250 µm coated fibers and 900 µm buffered fibers.
This cleaver consistently provides cuts averaging less than 0.5° from perpendicular with 95 percent less than 1°. With superior reliability, this field cleaver offers laboratory quality and performance. Featuring unrivaled durability and dependability for manufacturing, the cleaver’s simple, one-step operation makes it easy to use.
Corning Cable Systems FBC-012 Mass Fiber Cleaver provides excellent cleaves of one to 12 fibers using a simple one-step operation. The cleaver comes with a universal single-fiber guide that may be used when cleaving single fibers. The guide can be removed to allow the cleaver to hold most common fiber handling adapters of mass fusion splicers or fiber handlers for UniCam® Connector installation. The 12-position blade can be easily replaced in the field.
