AFL announced that it was recently awarded 12 new patents for technology and developments in connectivity, fiber management, fiber-optic cable, fusion splicing, test equipment and conductor accessory products.
AFL has been awarded two new patents for technology and developments in OCA products. The first is for a rack mount panel that includes a unique fiber management guide region that pivots downward to allow full access to the module storage slots, allowing for flexibility in the field to combine various modules for xWDM applications. The second is for a unique process for creating a cable assembly furcation kit which drives an exceptionally high level of strength and protection of fibers under extreme environmental conditions. It also provides for scaling across a wide range of fibers.
