IF-420090: Fiber Splice
IF-400010: Index-Matching Gel

A permanent crimp-type splice for all jacketed 1.0 mm core fiber optic cable with an outside diameter of 2.2 mm. Overall length of the splice is 25.4 mm. Crimps with the IF-370045 crimping tool. Can be used with or without index-matching gel.

IF-C-S2; IF-C-S3; IF-C-S4:
Ferrule-Less Connector

This multi-purpose connector is an expansion of our highly successful LED and photodetector product designs for jacketed 1 mm core plastic fiber. It utilizes the same cinch nuts, alignment principles and no-fuss fiber terminations to quickly handle the three most common requirements for joining two fiber lengths:

Replacing damaged fiber segments

Combining two different fiber lengths

Bulkhead or patch panel connections

The connector can be used with index-matching gel, for reducing Fresnel reflection losses, or without gel for quick and easy connections. The IF-C-S2 version comes without a jam nut for basic fiber splicing while the IF-C-S3 version includes a jam nut for bulkhead and panel mounts. The IF-C-S4 version does not require that the jacket be stripped, making it a direct replacement for the now obsolete IF-C-S1.

IF-820050: ST® Active Device Mount

Low-profile ST device mount for multi-mode plastic or glass fiber cable. Accepts OT-18, TO-46, and TO-52 active device package styles. Body is nickel-plated, die-cast zinc for EMI/RFI shielding and protecting sensitive electro-optical components. Mounts to PCB with two 2-26 SAE screws.

IF-820063: ST® Mating Sleeve

Multi-mode nickel-plated metal mating housing for mating ST connectors. Bronze alignment sleeve.

Ferruled Connectors

Durable low-cost connectors with metal housing and hard stainless alloy ferrule. The connector's fiber ferrule crimps directly on the cable fiber jacket, eliminating cable pull away from the connector. Supplied with a 3 mm boot.

IF-400005: PMMA Fiber Epoxy

Bonding to the unique structure of PMMA plastic fiber core is difficult, so a special epoxy is called for. IFO has prepared a special epoxy that adheres well to the fluoropolymer cladding and to all jacket materials, plus does not embrittle the PMMA fiber core. IFO's epoxy comes in 4 gram A-packs which allows for quick mixing inside a 2-part pouch.
