Ox-RAC-08

The Ox-RAC-08 is the world’s only ribbon angled cleaver. The single mode fiber ribbon is stripped and clamped under rubber rings at two points and bent down onto a sharp diamond blade. All optical fibers are cleaved simultaneously. Each fiber is cleaved at an angle of 8° from perpendicular and each fiber has a back-reflection of <-60dB. 

Applications

  • Pigtailing fiber ribbons to opto-electronic devices such as laser arrays, detector arrays and planar waveguides

Features

  • Staple action for easy use
