CommScope Inc., (NYSE:CTV), a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, introduces its SYSTIMAX® field-terminated Qwik-LC™ connectors for behind-the-wall (BTW) premises distribution networks and local area networks (LANs) The Qwik-LC connectors are “no-epoxy, no-polish” connectors that feature a mechanical crimp, which makes fiber terminations easier and faster than typical epoxy terminations.

The Qwik-LC connectors are for use in central offices, LANs, Fiber-to-the-Desk (FTTD) and in other applications where quality, small-size, high-density and low-loss are required. The product offers a quick and repeatable termination solution for single mode and multimode fiber on 900µm buffered fiber. The connectors’ performance exceeds the ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-B standards, and can be used in high data rate systems such as 1 and 10 Gb/s Ethernet applications. Since epoxy or polishing is not required, the connectors provide an ideal solution for quick repairs and terminations in difficult locations.

The Qwik-LC connectors possess the same dimensions and are virtually indistinguishable from the traditional epoxy and polish connectors once installed in a system. The product comes packaged in a 25-count installer pack that is portable and convenient. The product is also available with a complete tool kit that features a high precision cleaver, crimp tool and dies, stripper, cleaning solution, wipes and a scrap fiber container designed for fast setup and tear-down.

SYSTIMAX Solutions also offers the EZ-Connector family (LC, SC and ST0 of anerobic connectors as part of its full lineup of fiber optic connectors. In addition, one toolkit can be used to terminate all three connector styles and no Visual Fault Locator (VFL) is required.
