SKU: 0831-1119 Category:


The 0831-1119, 0831-1120-A (Army), 0831-1120-M (Marines) are specifically designed to repair and sustain TFOCA and/or MFOCA Reels of fiber widely used by the Army and Marine Corps. The Quad EL enables the Warfighter to strip, cleave, fusion splice, and protect all four fibers simultaneously, saving hundreds of man-hours. The TFOCA/MFOCA Fusion Splicer will splice any combination of either single mode or multimode fiber contained in the M85045/8B Ground Tactical Fiber. Transit case designed with opposing V-groove clips to position fiber directly beneath electrodes.

Each kit comes with eight JPS-400 Plus outer jacket protection sleeves and all other supplies to repair and sustain any reel of fiber in harsh desert environments.

The 0831-1119 , 0831-1120-A (Army), 0831-1120-M (Marines) are Universal, Fusion Splice Kits. The splicer is designed to splice single, dual, or even all four TFOCA II® fibers simultaneously. This feature demonstrates a tremendous cost savings by allowing the technician to splice any fiber configuration using “pigtails”. Systems may be made functional in a matter of moments – even in battlefield environments.

Quad EL Spec Sheet

The KITCO Fiber Optics #0831-1119 Quad EL Fusion
Splice Kit was designed specifically for the Ground
Tactical Warfighter to repair and sustain TFOCA (Tactical
Fiber Optic Cable Assemblies) and MFOCA (Mixed Fiber
Optic Cable Assemblies) in harsh, desert, battlefield
environments, even at night. Now instead of discarding
expensive reels of the four channel MIL-PRF-85045/8A
Fiber Optic Cable Reels, the Warfighter can quickly and
easily repair the severed or broken fiber almost
instantaneously. The Quad EL Kit now contains 5 (five)
each of KITCO Fiber Optics’ JPS-400 (Jacket Protection
Sleeve (NSN 6070-01-527-2509) which makes restocking
easier for the Warfighter. The JPS-400 protects the entire
outer jacket of the Ground Tactical Fiber, yet is flexible
enough to conform to the diameter of the TFOCA or
MFOCA reel of fiber when rewound.

Key Features & Specifications
0831-1119 Quad EL Fusion Splice Kit
This unique Fusion Splice Kit contains tools designed that
allows the Warfighter to thermo-strip, cleave, arc check,
fusion splice (any combination of multimode and/or single
mode fiber – 250 μm or 900 μm ), and protect with glass
protection sleeves all four fibers simultaneously! This
alone saves hours of time in prep, fuse, and protect time
as compared to fusing each fiber individually.
