The HFC005 traditional fiber chuck is designed to accept fibers with diameters up to 200 µm once the coating (buffer) has been stripped. The fiber is fed through the length of the chuck and then a collet mechanism is used to secure the fiber in place. Therefore, the fiber needs to be stripped and fed through the holder prior to being cleaved, thus preventing the fiber endface from being damaged. The HFC005 has dimensions of Ø6.35 mm (Ø0.25") x 60 mm (2.36") long. This fiber chuck is ideal for use with the HFR001 Rotator.
