AFL gets 12 patents for technology and product development.

Spartanburg-based AFL has received 12 patents over the last quarter for technology and product development in fiber optic cabling, fusion splicing, test equipment and connectivity, according to a news release.

The patents are:

Tactical deployable cables the newly designed cable quadrupled fiber count for existing cable constructions, solving an issue that enabled increased fiber density, reduced cable weight and allowed for additional length of deployment reels.

Optical fiber bulkhead splice assemblies for optical transceiver modules this invention uses a mass fusion splice solution to allow production of a fixed fiber length on the surface mount technology line and adds the termination pigtail in packaging post-process.

Optical fiber furcation assemblies the invention is a user-friendly field installable fan-out kit/furcation assembly with a simple crimp and a cover with a slot and rail that allows the cover to be installed after assembly.

Fiber optic transition assemblies designed for outside plant applications, this furcation assembly includes a spring member strain relief on both the transition and connector ends.

Communications module housing this foldable fiber management tray allows access to the connectors and makes removal of modules more convenient.

Optical connection apparatus and assemblies this invention includes an adapter device that facilitates optical connections between an MPO/MTP connector and an optical power meter.

Laser feedback control systems this technology enables the use of multiple CO2 laser technologies for splicing and glass processing applications and stabilizes the laser output power.
