Connector/Cable Assemblies Handle Harsh Environments

Groomed for physically-challenging apps, the ultra-bend, insensitive fiber standard contact (SC), angled physical contact (APC) indoor/outdoor cable, and SC/APC 4.8-mm connectors are reportedly six times more flexible than conventional optical cable. For “Fiber to the x” and industrial designs, the connector assemblies offer a 5-mm bend radius and an optical return loss of -60 dB. All versions employ pre-radius precision ceramic ferrules and a one-piece body design. Simplex and duplex mating SC adapters are available including snap- or screw-mount versions.
