Rainbow Bar


Rainbow Bar

The York FK Series employs ultrasonic technology to consistently provide precise cleaves.

The FK 11 and the FK11-4 will reliably deliver end angles of 0.5° for fibers between 80-200Ám diameter. Both models can clamp down on bare fibers as well as buffer coatings up to 900Ám. The Cleavers differ only by the range of cleave lengths possible. The FK11 left clamp is located 7mm from the diamond tipped horn while the FK11-4 is 19mm.

The FK11-LDF or "Fat Fiber" cleaver can be adjusted for fibers between 180Ám to 400Ám. Typical end angle is 1.5 ° depending on the fiber type.

The FK12 is for cleaving bare fibers of 125Ám diameter when angled cleaves are required. It is adjustable between 0 to 15° with excellent repeatability of +/-1° @ 8°. Angled cleaves yield low return losses of -60dB or less.
