OFS ST bayonet style connector system is compatible with OFS Crimp and Cleave Termination Kits. The ST connector takes advantage of the advanced optomechanical properties of HCS fiber, attaching through mechanical means rather than traditional epoxy/polish. This saves time and greatly simplifies installer training requirements. It is an excellent solution for field connectorization and repair in harsh, industrial envronments.No epoxy, no curing, no polishing steps. Quick, easy, reliable.
