The FK12 Angled Fiber Cleaver sets the standard for low reflectance fiber termination of better than -60 dB. Fast and repeatable cleaving of fiber ends at user-selectable cleave angles (0° to 15° ) make it possible for installers to reduce the reflectance of mechanical splices and other fiber terminations without the use of index-matching gels. The FK12 is the tool of choice when quick fiber termination and low return loss are required for minimum cost.
The fiber is secured in the clamps and put under controlled tension. When using the FK12, the torsion required to achieve the desired angle cleave angle is set. Tension is then applied, and the
ultrasonic vibrating diamond blade is moved toward the fiber. The result, depending on the
cleaver used, is a clean, flat or angled fiber that is ready for splicing or testing.
