Optical fibre connector

Thursday, 25 April, 2013 | Supplied by: Soanar Limited



Fischer Connectors, represented by Soanar in Australia and New Zealand, has released its new push-pull FibreOptic interconnecting solution designed for optical performance in extreme environments.

The Fischer FibreOptic with two (FO2) or four (FO4) optical channels is easy to clean by virtue of a removable monoblock mate adapter and via the possibility of rinsing the unmated connectors freely under water or in an ultrasound bath.

The connector has a high ingress protection of IP68 (2 m/24 hours) when mated and IP67 in unmated conditions. In addition, the optical performance is said to be insensitive to mechanical strain on the connector. The spring optical contacts employed allow for filtering out any stress applied to the connector housings while keeping the typical advantage of a push-pull solution.

The connector can be used in a wide range of fields in outdoor or demanding applications, such as transport and mobility, telecoms, energy, defence and security, broadcast, construction and infrastructure, and medical devices.

Key specifications: IP68 2 m/24 h mated and IP67 (1 m/30 min) unmated ingress protection; Extreme Environment FibreOptic Solution (Norm IEC 61753-1 Cat. E); multichannel (2 and 4), SM and MM optical fibres, UPC and APC polishing; push-pull mating plugs and receptacles; optional gas tight panel receptacles (IP68 or <10-6 mbar L/s); removable monoblock mate adapter.
