Can I use the TKT-UNICAM-PFC to install APC connectors?
Customers can install APC connectors using the installation tools provided in the TKT-UNICAM-PFC kit. However, the cleaver in this kit provides flat cleaves, so a different cleaver is needed to generate an angled cleave before terminating the APC connector in the installation tool, assuming an angled cleave is desired. At room temperatures, using a flat cleave is acceptable. An angled cleave is needed when the connector is installed in environments with temperature swings (outdoor environments).

The FBC-014 Angled Cleaver  provides angled cleaves and is available as an additional cleaver for purchase to complement your UniCam Tool Kit.

When using the Continuity Test Set (CTS) with my TKT-UNICAM, I can't get my light to go out; what does "significantly dim" mean?
CTS is a guide to help an installer determine when the field fiber has contacted the factory fiber. "Significantly dim" is an apparent change in the CTS brightness when the connector is cammed. A "dark" or "dim" termination is not an indication of the performance loss. Refer to section 2.2 in SRP-006-150  for further instructions.
