Mechanical Splice

Mechanical splicing is an accessory to align and connect 2 optical fiber. Mechanical splices hold the two optical fibers aligned for an indefinite period of time without any alteration. The splice loss is stable over time and unaffected by changes in environmental or mechanical conditions. In case of variation and increased loss splicing can be reopened and fibers realigned. The realignment includes cleaning fiber end, new cut and reintegration of it in the same or new splice.

In its intended use, once performed a mechanical splice, this can become permanent because it is environmentally and mechanically stable.
