E-2000™ FUSION

The E-2000™ FUSION allows you to quickly and easily make field terminations with the performance you expect from Diamond-quality E-2000™ connectors.
The key to this system is DIAMOND’s advanced “crocodile alberino” fusion field ferrule assembly. The ferrule assembly consists of a factory-terminated fibre endface, fiber stub, and integrated splice protection. The fibre endface is core-centered via Diamond’s well-known Active Core Alignment process and factory-polished to the company’s precise specifications. The E-2000™ FUSION
is then field terminated via a low loss fusion splice using the new Diamond Zeus D50 Fusion Field Termination Kit. The E-2000™ FUSION is available for SM and MM fibre (250μm, 600μm and 900μm) and cable (1.6-to 3.1mm) in both 0° PC or 8° APC versions.

Other fibre types can also be accommodated upon request.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

    • Simple, fast and reliable field termination reduces operator error and cost per termination
    • No need of glue
    • Outstanding optical performance consistent and repeatable low IL / high RL
    • No polishing eliminates the need for costly consumables
    • Fusion spliced pigtail performance and reliability without the cost and space associated with splice enclosures, trays and protectors

E-2000™ features:

    • Integrated protective caps and shutters for mechanical endface protection and eye-safety
    • Interchangeable, user-definable colour-coding and mechanical keying options
    • Simplex and compact version
    • Intermateable with a wide range of E-2000™ components including, attenuators, hybrid mating adapters, transition adapters, etc.

COLOUR KEYING

The E-2000™ system permits the user to specify the colour of the thumb-latch and the mating adapter frame so that different line types, uses, destinations and points of origin, etc. can be readily identified.
The thumb-latch and frame are available in eight distinct colours:
1. Blue
2. Beige (White)
3. Black
4. Red
5. Orange
6. Yellow
7. Green
8. Violet

MECHANICAL KEYING

Additionally, it will become increasingly necessary to guard against improper connection in multiple-service patch facilities. The E-2000™ system permits the inclusion of a mechanical keying mechanism to ensure channel differentiation.
The mechanical keying options are also colour-coded as follows:
1. Red
2. Brown
3. Yellow
4. Orange
5. Violet
6. Beige (White)

NOTE
As standard, Diamond uses coloured connector bodies, cable boots and mating adapter housings to identify the fibre type (SM or MM 50/62.5μm) and ferrule polish (PC or APC).
Diamond`s standard connector/boot/adaptor colours are as follows: Beige/ Black/Beige for MM PC 50μm, Beige/Beige/Beige for MM PC 62.5μm, Blue/Blue/Blue for SM PC, and Green/Green/Green for SM APC. Other colours are available upon request.
