Single fibre optic connector for the harshest environments10 September 2016
FO1, a new single fibre optic connector, is the latest addition to Fischer’s FiberOptic Series. The miniature, lightweight, rugged connector is easy to use and should ensure high optical performance (for high precision and data transmission rates), even in harsh environments – it is IP68 rated when mated and IP67 unmated.
It is designed for easy mating, thanks to its push-pull locking system. The removable sleeve holder (monobloc mate adapter) also ensures that end faces can be cleaned easily, even in the field, while UPC and APC polishing reduces insertion
and return losses, making devices more secure.
The 13mm connector is available either in pre-configured reels, of any required length, or integrated into custom assemblies for applications in broadcasting, defence, instrumentation
Christopher Martin, FiberOptic product manager, Fischer Connectors, said: “We’ve designed this smaller product to be even lighter and more flexible so that it’s easy to integrate into existing solutions.”
