OPT SF-1 (“SKINNY FINGERS”)
LEMO EXTRACTION TOOL FOR SMPTE 304 CONNECTORS
MODEL OPT SF-1
FIBER OPTIC CONNECTOR
Fiber optic system installations often have densely-packed patch panels. Although they are space efficient, these patch panel arrays often make simple insertion and extraction of individual connectors difficult, if not nearly impossible. When small form-factor connectors (e.g. LCs) are involved, these difficulties are exacerbated.
The Optimark OPT SF-1 Fiber Optic Connector Insertion/Extraction Tool is capable of reaching into very tight spaces to perform these tasks. It has been designed to work with virtually all rectangular or square cross-section connectors, providing a positive grip on a connector without crimping adjacent fibers.
