Paper Abstract

Over the past three years, GTE Fiber Optic Products has been conducting extensive environmental tests on the Elastomeric Splice to verify its performance in the harsh conditions encountered in the field. These tests include thermal cycling from -40C to +70C, fungus resistance per MIL-STD-810C (Method 508.2), heat/material aging based on activation energies, and blind vs. optimized loss. The results of these tests, which are presented herein, sub-stantiate that the GTE Elastomeric Splice is a proven alternative to fusion and other mechanical splicing systems for both permanent installation as well as emergency repair of multimode and singlemode fiber optic installations.
