CT-20 High Precision Cleaver

Rainbow Bar
The CT-20 fiber cleaver from AFL Telecommunications has the capability to cleave both single fibers and ribbons as large as 24 fibers. Variants of this cleaver incorporating either single-fiber adapters or use of ribbon fiber holders make for a versatile design suitable for all AFL Telecommunications fusion splicers. A 16-position blade will yield 48,000 single-fiber cleaves or 2,000 24-fiber cleaves before requiring replacement. The lightweight feature of this cleaver, combined with its easy, one step, and ergonomic operation make the CT-20 both field friendly and suitable for factory splicing conditions, with minimal operator experience. An optional fiber collector safely handles and stores cleave scraps.
