Optical Adapters Provide Rotational Flexibility

Unveiled as the only rotating optical adapters available, the Swivel EMI Adapters claim to provide the most effective EMI shielding and greater flexibility for cable management. The components allow for a full 70° of cable re-orientation that turns a standard panel-mount adapter into a multi-positional swivel. Users can re-position the cable-exit angle off the faceplate, in the factory or in the field, without disassembly or the need for custom modules and cards. Available in LC duplex, SC simplex, or MPO simplex, the adapters allow the cable-exit angle to be re-positioned from the standard straight-mount position of 90° to the faceplate to ±35° degrees in either direction. Other features include adapters for both single- and multi-mode applications, EMI gaskets, and a locking setscrew to rigidly fix the angle position. Adapters are also available without EMI gaskets. Price is $30 each/100. MOLEX INC., Lisle, IL. (630) 969-4550.
