Fiber Optic Center announces Sagitta’s Cometx, New Laser Cleaver Platform at OFC 2016

Fiber Optic Center, Inc., (FOC), an international leader in distributing fiber optic components, equipment and supplies and recognized as one of the most technically savvy fiber optics companies in the world, announces a new laser cleaver platform, the Cometx.

The release of the Cometx is the latest from Sagitta Engineering Solutions Ltd in their laser cleaver family.  The Cometx enables efficient and quick laser cleaving of fiber/s during the connector termination process.

Laser cleaving is free of chips and other mechanical cleave problems and enables much more efficient connector termination by either eliminating polishing steps (for physical contact connectors) or all polishing steps (for bare fiber/s applications with no physical contact).  This new laser cleaver platform is smaller, lighter and less expensive compared to parallel products in the market.

There are four different versions including:

  • Cometx-Si: For laser cleaving of single fiber connectors prior to polishing
  • Cometx-Mt: For laser cleaving of multiple and/or single fiber connectors prior to polishing
  • Cometx-Ssp: For laser cleaving of multiple and/or single fiber connectors prior to polishing to be terminated by Single Step Polishing
  • Cometx-Bf: For laser cleaving of multiple and/or single fiber in Bare Fiber/s application (for non-physical contact connectors)

The platforms are upgradable. For example, Cometx-Si may get upgraded to Cometx-Mt or higher versions. Most upgrades can be done in the field. Bare fiber cleaving equipment can be found here.

The new Cometx will be unveiled at OFC 2016 in Anaheim, CA at Fiber Optic Center’s Booth #2308.
