TE Connectivity Unveils Thermal Adhesive Coated (TAC) Fiber System

MINNEAPOLIS - TE Connectivity (TE), a designer and manufacturer of electronic connectivity products, is launching a new fiber installation system that enables fast, flexible and discrete deployment of fiber optic cable in indoor environments. The thermal adhesive coated (TAC) fiber system uses a unique handheld tool and 900-micron fiber cable with integrated adhesive to enable a fast, consistent method for installing fiber throughout a building with minimal visibility. The portable fiber system can be used for any indoor installation – minimizing the installer’s equipment costs and speeding time on the premises.

“Indoor fiber installers are faced with many challenges as property owners and tenants grow less tolerant of unsightly broadband cable and equipment in their living space,” says Jaxon Lang, vice president of TE Broadband Networks. “The TAC fiber system provides installers with a fast and easy technique for deploying fiber seamlessly around baseboard, windows and trim work – holding firmly in place and nearly invisible to the casual observer.”

Heat-activated Microcable Bonds Fiber as it is Applied
The TAC fiber system utilizes a cordless, handheld fiber dispenser tool. When turned on, the device triggers the heat-activated microcable, enabling the fiber to bond continuously to the surface area as it is being applied. Unlike traditional indoor fiber solutions, no messy caulking, staples or brackets are required – and the same equipment can be leveraged for any indoor fiber application. The TAC fiber system also employs reduced bend radius fiber technology that is less susceptible to attenuation loss resulting from tight bends and handling. The system’s cable also works with field installable connectors or can be fusion spliced for connecting to a wall plate or optical network terminal (ONT).
