AFL CT-30A Precision Fiber Optic Cleaver

Designed for excellent portability, the CT-30A is equally at home in a splicing van or in a bucket truck and is ideal for FTTx applications. The 16-position blade yields 48,000 single-fiber cleaves, or 4,000 12-fiber ribbon cleaves before requiring replacement, and the built-in scrap collector conveniently stores fiber shards until they can be safely discarded.

The CT-30A Cleaver is packaged with three scrap collection options that allow the user to tailor it to their cleaving preferences. The CT30A cleaver is delivered with the SC-01 Side Cover installed for users that prefer not to use an automated scrap collection system. For those that prefer an automated scrap collection system, the FC-02 Fiber Collector and two scrap box options are included. The FDB-02 Scrap Box is a smaller bin for users seeking a compact profile. The FDB-03 Scrap Box is a larger bin with sweeping brush and static resistant surfaces for those users seeking to maximize scrap capacity. All scrap options are easily configured by the user.


  • Three scrap collection options included.
  • Improved visibility when placing the fiber.
  • Larger base with a more stable platform.
