The Fitel S220A Ribbon Separator is a tool to initiate separating 2 to 12-fiber ribbons into single fibers.
After removing the ribbon coating with this tool, the ribbon can be easily separated by hand into single fiber. The part of the fibers to which the tool is applied must be cut off before the fibers are spliced or connected.
The S220A uses two finely positioned blades to shave the matrix off the top and bottom of ribbon fiber while leaving the individual fibe jackets untouched.
• After the matrix is removed, the fibers separate out easily by hand.
• For use with 300?m and 400?m ribbons of 2 to 12 strands
• Blade life is 1,000 separations
