Lane ElectronicsA leading franchise distributor for many of the largest manufacturers of electrical and electronic connectors in the industry, we are pleased to announce the availability of the new FIBERFOX Extended Beam Optical Connectors from NEUTRIK.
Designed to meet the specifications of the MILDTL-83526 specifications, these advanced Beam optical connectors are designed to work in harsh environments and use non-physical contact optical edges that are sealed IP68 behind a spherical lens with anti-reflective coating. With the option of mounting both front and rear, the connector eliminates the need for adapters for both female and male halves. The system is available in 2-channel and 4-channel versions, and each configuration is compatible with the other configuration and other systems listed in MIL-DTL-83526.
This lens expands the beam to many times its original size, supporting optical alignment and minimizing the effects of dust, debris and other environmental conditions. Extended optical beam connectivity is exceptional in wet, dirty, dusty, high and low temperatures
Effectively maintenance-free with theoretical unlimited life, FIBERFOX can withstand more than 10,000 mating cycles without maintenance or loss of insertion and can only be cleaned with clean water and a lint-free cloth. IP68 compliant, certified waterproof to a depth of 6 m, the connectors have a screw locking mechanism. The chassis-mounted version of the connector fits into an industry-standard cutout, and standard LC cables can be plugged into the back.
FIBERFOX is a hermaphroditic connector that allows you to combine multiple plug-in cable assemblies to extend the length of the system, and the connectors are available with two or four channel multimode lenses. In addition to the standard plugs, FIBERFOX bridge sockets are suitable for use with standard LC connection cables and act as a unique LC to Expanded Beam converter.
FIBERFOX applications include defense, industrial, mining, medical, security, rail, sensor applications, communications in the oil and gas industry, lighting, networks, public address systems, video, broadcasting and AV.
