Valdor's Impact Mount® fiber optic connector line (IMT) is all-mechanical and field installable.
It offers long-term usage with minimal repair or replacement, and is suitable for harsh environments.
These connectors contain NO epoxy or index matching gel typically found in other mechanical connectors available on the market.
The mounting concept is based on dynamically compressing metal ferrules uniformly around optical fibers creating a hermetic seal.
The unique features of the IMT connectors provide stable readings with little variation even in harsh environments.
Field termination is quick and easy. The Impact Mount®
Termination Hand Tool is universal and can be used for all types of IMT fiber optic connectors including LC, ST, SC, FC, SP, and SMA.
LASER PIGTAIL - IMPACT MOUNT®
Valdor's IMT Laser Pigtail utilizes a miniature metal ferrule for its termination process by wrapping the metal tip
around a fiber. It eliminates costly fiber metallization and soldering steps often needed for standard laser
pigtail assemblies. Since no epoxy and index match gel is used, there is no noise interference due to chemicals.
It can withstand high temperatures with uniform heat dissipation and no hot spots. It is ideal for high power
laser applications and test instrumentation.

Impact Mount® Technology Concept
The mounting process is accomplished in three steps:
- Impact Mount tool dynamically compresses the metal ferrule tip around the fiber
- Crimps buffer at the rear of the connector
- Polishes end of ferrule in 20 seconds
Note: Additional crimping for Kevlar cables provides further stability and strength.
