Compact and Accurate Fiber Spools

Custom lengths of calibrated fiber that fit on the palm of your hand.

OptiConcepts Compact Fiber Spools™ provide an optimum solution when custom lengths of optical fiber are needed. Compact Fiber Spools are a convenient way to store custom length spans of 250um bare fiber and can easily be concatenated to build various test arrays. Optional connectors are installed to create calibration and quality-control fibers for optical manufacturing and servicing purposes. Standard five inch diameter spools are designed to hold lengths up to 4.5 km. In addition to our standard Compact Fiber Spools, custom product variations including spool sizes, enclosures, and additional connector types are available.

Micro Design
OptiConcepts’ Compact Fiber Spools offer various lengths of fiber in a convenient, light-weight enclosure. These units offer versatile function and portable fiber protection.  Weighing only five ounces, our five-inch Compact Fiber Spool holds up to 4.5 km of optical fiber. Take advantage of the Compact Fiber Spool’sfeatures. It is easier to handle than a large spool of unprotected fiber or a long patch cord. Compact Fiber Spools look and feel much like a jumper.

Portable Flexibility
In addition to our standard Compact Fiber Spools, customer specified spools for any application are possible. Compact Fiber Spools offer the flexibility to be used as single units or as part of a multi spool array for use in various indoor applications. Use Compact Fiber Spools when you need to install or test long lengths of fiber within limited space constraints. Compact Fiber Spools are an example of how OptiConcepts constantly strives to provide innovative products and cost effective solutions to make your job easier.
