Abstract
"BORNOPTIQUE" developped by Amphenol-Socapex is a small sized remountable splice allowing a simple and rapid (thus performing ≤ 0.3 dB) connection of 2 fibers with a core diameter greater than or equal to 50 urn. All parts of this component are manufactured by injection molding, which explains that "BORNOPTIQUE" can work as mixing agent into the optical distribution frames. First we present the operating principle of "BORNOPTIQUE" along with the associated tool kit, and then will describe its characteristics (attenuation, mechanical and thermal characteristics).
