AFC Pre-terminated Loose Tube Cables
AFC Group can offer a comprehensive range of high quality pre-
terminated loose tube cables. Our in-house production facility enables
us to offer quick turn-around times and great flexibility to meet our
customers’ varied requirements.

Pre-terminated cables can be manufactured to virtually any length and
connector combination. Each end of the cable is terminated with a
purpose-built loose tube fanout kit which offers excellent fibre protection.


• Pre-terminated cables offer the advantage of reduced time and cost associated with on-site connector terminations
  and testing. This is of particular interest for projects where narrow installation windows can be applicable.
• Machine polished and thoroughly inspected and tested factory terminations offer greater consistency with regard to
  connector termination quality and performance.
• The robust heavy duty fanout kit protects the inner tubes and fibres and is safely secured by clamping onto the cable
  and the central strength member.
