Hubbell PROclick

Pre-polished SC & LC Fibre Connectors

Hubbell PROclick® Fibre Connectors are pre-polished SC and LC fibre connectors that can be terminated in less than 60 seconds to cleaved fibre cables.

Product Description

Hubbell PROclick Fibre Connectors a quick & easy field termination solution

Hubbell PROclick Fibre Connectors provide a quick and easy way to field terminate fibre optic cables without the need of adhesives and polishing. PROclick Fibre Connectors are pre-polished SC and LC connectors that can be installed on to cleaved fibres in less than 60 seconds to produce a secure, low-loss fibre connection. They are an ideal solution for installing new fibre connections, and perfect for repairing existing damaged connections.

PROclick SC and LC fibre connectors feature an index-matching splice mechanism and a precision factory pre-polished zirconia ceramic ferrule. A micron-precision fibre alignment mechanism and smooth fibre feed ensure a low loss, high yield termination to cleaved fibres. PROclick support OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4 and SM fibre types and use a proven fibre clamping method that performs under extreme temperatures specified in Telcordia GR-326 standards.

Installing PROclick Fibre Connectors
Terminating the PROclick can be completed in less than 60 seconds. Simply insert the cleaved fibre into the connector and hold in place. Remove the wedge clip from the PROclick to close the fibre clamp. After termination use a Visual Fault Locator (VFL) to confirm and assure optimum fibre mating within the splice element.
