Fiber Optic Termination, Inspection, and Troubleshooting Tools and Kits

Industry-Standard and Glenair Installation and Maintenance Tooling for MIL-DTL-38999 Type Systems (MIL-PRF-29504 /4 and /5), Glenair Front Release (GFR), and Others

The best fiber optic tooling in the industry — from bench tools to field kits. One-stop-shopping for fiber optic termination, inspection and trouble-shooting tools.

The Right Fiber Optic Tool for the Job

Fiber optic connectors are designed to be connected and disconnected many times without affecting the optical performance of the fiber circuit. Optimal performance can be achieved by following the correct process for termination of the fiber circuit — a task which requires the use of a wide range of specialized tooling. Glenair's extensive experience in building fiber optic interconnect cables has enabled us to select the right tools for each step in the termination and assembly process. Our Fiber Optic Termination and Test Probe Kits allow field technicians the convenience of completing final termination of precision termini on location for easy and efficient cable routing and installation. Each kit contains pin and socket polishing tools, jacket strippers, shears, scribes — literally all the tools and supplies required for ongoing termination and test of fiber optic systems. Polishing tools are also sold separately for factory use or as replacement parts in field termination kits.

GTK2000
Glenair Fiber Optic Testing Kit for GHD Fiber Optic Connection Systems

Traditional optical test harnesses are expensive and easily contaminated in normal use. The Glenair fiber optic testing kit utilizes a special probe device in conjunction with our precise-mating test adapter, to provide a complete solution to optical test and measurement. The GTK-2000 comes with a power meter, source meter, test probes and a test probe calibration adapter. For accurate results, the test probe calibration adapterwill “zero out” your meters.

The Glenair patented test probe design provides less than 1.0 dB insertion loss, and is used with test probe adapters and a calibration feedthrough to perform efficient measurements of fiber optic cable performance. The kit accommodates all standard fiber sizes and multiple fiber optic connection system.
