In addition to these demonstrations, representatives will be available to discuss Verrillon specialty optical fibers including harsh environment fibers. Several NYFORS™ products will also be represented and include the MiniCoater 2™, AutoCoater 2™ and new CleaveMeter 3D™. The Fujikura 12S, the small fusion splicer in the world, and the Fujikura 70S, the fastest fusion splicer in the world, will be demonstrated with FuseConnect™ fusion spliced field installable connectors.
