Fiber optic mechanical splice unit is used to fast connect the two pieces of bare fiber, it can be two bare optical fiber stripped out from optical cables, it can also connect two fiber optic pigtails, or connect one pigtail to bare optical fiber.

When using the fiber optic mechanical splice, two cleaved optical fiber ends are mechanically aligned to each other by a special housing (V groove), index matching gel is positioned between the fiberglass ends to maximize coupling and minimize back reflection.

Fiber mechanical splice is important and really convenient to use in FTTx, it can be used in field without the need of fusion splicing, mechanical splice units are easy to operate and low cost, thus it is more and more used in FTTx projects.
