Fiber Optic Breakout Kits
Opticonx provides fiber optic breakout kits that support the direct termination of the optic fibers from the fiber optic cable. Our cables offer secure housing for the exposed optical fibers and a firmer grip between connectors and optical fibers, preventing fiber breakage.
SPK Series Fanout Kits: Solutions for Fanout Of 250um Fiber to 900um
These kits transition from 250 µm to 900 µm fibers. The SPKU model works for central or unitube tube applications, the SPKL is best for loose tubes, and the SPKR is ideal for ribbon applications.
Opticonx SPK Series Fanout Kits are field installable fanout solutions to transition 250 micron fibers to 900um for direct termination. Choose SPKL for loose tube applications, SPKR for ribbon applications, and SPKU for unitube or central tube applications.

UBK Series Breakout Kits: Solutions for Round or Rollable Ribbons 12 to 432 Fibers
UBR Series Breakout Kits: Solutions for Flat or Oval Ribbons 12 to 432 Fibers
The UBR Series Breakout Kit are designed to protect bare ribbon for direct termination with MTP or MPO style connectors. You can also use them with SPKR kits for single fiber termination. UBR kits come with fibers ranging from 12 to 432 fibers and are ideal for flat or oval ribbons.
Choose your kit by cable fiber count:
- UBR for 12-144 Fibers
- UBR for 192, 288, and 432 Fibers
XBR Series Xtreme Density Breakout Kits: Solutions for Unitube or Central Tube
The XBR Series Xtreme Density Breakout Kits protect and identify rollable ribbon fiber bundles. They can transition high fiber count cables (288-1728) to more manageable subunits (72-144) for patch panels, splice trays, or direct termination.
Route multiple 12 fiber rollable ribbons per tube to splice trays or break down further with additional transition kits, or route multiple round/rollable ribbon bundles.
XBR+ High Fiber Count Breakout Solution for High Fiber Count Breakouts
The XBR+ High Fiber Count Breakout Solution is a modular breakout solution for today’s high fiber count applications. These are rack-mount brackets that transition high fiber count cables (1728-3456) to subunits of 144 fibers for routing to patch panels, splice trays, or direct termination.
Route multiple 12 fiber round/rollable ribbons in extremely high fiber count cables.

What Are Fiber Optic Breakout Kits?
During furcation, fiber optic breakout kits branch out loose fiber strands from a buffer tube into protective tubing so you can add a connector. Also called a fan out kit, fiber optic breakout kits function to terminate cables with large fiber counts.
Breakout kits come in 3 mm, 2 mm, and 900 µm diameter tubing sizes with yarn strength members that slip over and lock in the furcation unit. The 2 mm and 3 mm breakout kits allow for quick and simple termination distribution cables. They’re color-coded to eliminate the need for marking individual fiber ends. Fiber optic breakout kits also feature heat-shrink tubing to limit fiber bending and offer strain relief.
When to Use Fiber Optic Breakout Kits
Here are some common situations where a breakout kit is most useful:
- Terminating through a pass-through cable plate: The kit will add extra protection to the exposed cable that is directly connected to a device.
- Terminating in an equipment rack: The breakout kit will also protect the cable that’s exposed and connected to a device.
- Terminating in an equipment rack fiber tray: A 900 µm or 3 mm kit may not be required because enclosed fiber trays block access to 250 µm fibers after termination.
- Terminating in a surface mount enclosure: A 900 µm or 3 mm kit comes in handy when using generic walls or if the fiber is accessible by other fibers.
- Terminating to a wall plate: Breakout kits are optional as an extra precaution when installing fiber with a wall plate.
