Custom Fiber Optic Assemblies

Shaxon Industries realizes installation labor is a significant portion of fiber optic system costs and high quality fiber technicians can be difficult to find and retain. Project timing can also be an issue with multiple locations in need of limited fiber technicians on staff. A large project behind in the construction schedule can be expedited or concurrent projects can be handled more easily by minimizing on-site terminations.

Benefits of Pre-terminated Fiber Assemblies

  • Cost savings – in most cases Shaxon production can reduce costs vs. on site termination
  • Fixed cost – there are no onsite re-terminations which can cut into profits
  • Faster installation – easier to fit work into overall construction schedule
  • Simpler installation – Shaxon can terminate both ends or provide pigtails for fusion splicing
  • Minimize temporary labor – contractors can do more with existing fiber technician

Connector options:

  • MTP, LC, SC, ST, and more
  • Blunt end
  • Pull Sock or Pulling Eye

Cable options:

  • 2-144 strand PVC, plenum, armored, and more
  • Pigtails for fusion splicing Red, Blue, Green, and more
  • Red, Blue, Green, and more

Effects of Tariffs

A limited amount of inventory is maintained at our production and warehouse facility in Anaheim, CA. Costs are expected to rise as this inventory is depleted and replenished from our supply chain.

Shaxon has always been committed to delivering high quality products to consumers at the lowest cost. For many years Shaxon has absorbed increased raw materials and operating costs.

The latest tariffs imposed on raw materials and finished goods will result in an immediate cost increase between 25% and 40% in the marketplace. Shaxon will absorb as much of the increase as possible to sustain our commitment of providing the lowest cost to our consumers.

Please visit the U.S. Customs and Border Protection site for more information regarding Section 301 Trade Remedies to be Assessed on Certain Products from China.

California Prop 65 Warnings

On August 30, 2016, the Office of Administrative Law approved the adoption of amendments to Article 6, Clear and Reasonable Warnings, of the California Code of Regulations. This regulatory action repeals all the regulatory provisions of Title 27 of the California Code of Regulations, Article 6 (sections 25601 et seq.), except those added via an emergency rule-making in April 2016 related to warnings for exposures to bisphenol A in canned foods and beverages (Sections 25603.3(f) and (g)). The action will replace the repealed sections with a new regulation divided into two new Sub-articles to Article 6. The repealed and new regulations provide, among other things, methods of transmission and content of warnings deemed to be compliant with the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 65).

The regulation will be operative on August 30, 2018. In the interim, businesses may comply with the regulation in effect on August 30, 2016, or the provisions of the new regulation. This will allow for a reasonable transition period for businesses to begin providing warnings under the new provisions.

Please visit www.p65warnings.ca.gov For additional information and self education.

Shaxon branded packaging with integrated warning text will be implemented as stock is received. Prior to full integration, products will have warning labels applied. Previews of warning labels used on various Shaxon products can be viewed here.
