The Fiber (strand) is glued to the connector assembly with heat-cured epoxy, providing a reliable connection with desired losses of less than 0.5 dB per mated pair. This process can be time-consuming because YOU must set or “cure the assembly.” A suitable Curing Oven is essential for consistency with your epoxy connect process. Epoxy removal from the connector assembly is the task at hand.

Automated Connector Polisher with Touchscreen Technology & ASR Automated Stub Removal
With the ACP24/96, you can automate polishing times, pressure, & motor speeds for each step. Complete polishing procedures are stored inside the ACP24/96 to save time and ensure repeatability. Create, save, and recall custom polishing procedures for custom jobs. Polishing Procedures can be saved to a computer for easy backup or transferred to another ACP24/96.
The ACP24/96 utilizes our figure 8 polishing pattern found in all our MCP lines of polishers and is compatible with all MCP24 and MCP48 polishing fixtures.
The ACP24/96 includes the ASR System for automated stub removal. No more removing fiber stubs by hand. ASR works with Nanometer Tech’s polishing fixtures, reducing the need to purchase special fixture plates.
With the ACP24, you can automate each step’s polishing times, pressure, and motor speeds. Complete polishing procedures are stored inside the ACP24 to save time and ensure repeatability. Create, keep, and recall custom polishing procedures for custom jobs. Save polishing procedures to a computer for secure backup or transfer to another ACP24.
