Taking the Complication Out of Self-Terminating Fiber Optics

Covid, Inc. has introduced a product line that helps make terminating fiber optic cables quick and easy.

Fiber optic technology is known to have several benefits when it comes to high bandwidth applications. However the main drawback is the difficulty and time consuming factors in terminating most fiber optic products. Traditional fiber cables require polishing and splicing which may not be an easy task without extensive training. Covid’s new line of Simple Fiber Optics, help eliminate these complications and make terminating fiber optic cables quick and easy.

Covid’s new Simple Fiber Optic products include fiber cabling, connectors and a basic termination kit. “What makes our new line of Simple Fiber Optics so exciting is the use of a splicing process that is easy for anyone to learn and is said to be even more reliable than traditional fiber splicing,” says Norm Carson, President of Covid, Inc. “Using the simple cleaver tools, cables and fiber connectors the termination is quick and effortless. We believe that with just a bit of practice anyone can now learn to terminate reliable fiber optic cables easily in the field,” adds Norm.

These fiber cables offer 10,000 times the bend longevity and up to 200 times the durability allowing installers to treat the product like standard category cabling instead of fragile fiber. SC and LC Fiber connectors are available in packs of ten. The basic termination kit comes with the precision wheel fiber cleaver, visual fault locator, strippers and many other accessories.

You can find these Simple Fiber Optic products on the Covid website. There, you will also find a variety of training videos and technical information, offering everything you need to start terminating these simple fiber optic cables.
