Tool Kits

Six distinct tool kits have been developed for particular maintenance functions. The kits support maintenance of light duty single fiber connectors (SC and ST types), heavy-duty multi-fiber connectors, FDDI connectors, and single fiber rotary mechanical splices.

These kits are identified on the following NAVSEA drawings:

a. NAVSEA Drawing 6872811 - NSN 5180-01-416-0565 - SC and ST type connectors
b. NAVSEA Drawing 6872812 - rotary mechanical splice
c. NAVSEA Drawing 6872813 - heavy-duty multi-fiber connector
d. NAVSEA Drawing 7085185 - SC, ST and heavy-duty multi-fiber connectors (submarine use)
e. NSN 6080-01-431-0614 - FDDI connector (supplement for 6872811 kits)
f. NSN 6080-01-475-0221 - SC connector (supplement for 6872811 kits manufactured before 11/1999)

These kits are available through NAVICP Mechanicsburg.
