For better durability, the company’s HFBR interfaces now employ plastic optical fiber cable assemblies. Available in simplex and duplex versions with both latching and non-latching connector types, the HFBR connectors suit applications in the automotive, industrial control, medical, and gaming industries. Plastic fiber is more durable than glass fiber and has a much larger core size, providing more bandwidth over short distances and making it easier to terminate. In addition to off-the-shelf lengths, L-com can provide custom lengths with short lead times. L-COM GLOBAL CONNECTIVITY, North Andover, MA. (800) 341-5266.
