Cinch’s Fibreco connectors are available from Lane Electronics
A franchise agreement between Lane Electronics and Cinch Connectivity grants the former distribution rights for the Fibreco range of expanded beam fibre optic connectors across the UK and Europe.
Fibreco expanded beam connectors and cable assemblies are intended as cost-effective solutions to critical harsh environment communication applications such as defence, aerospace, security, offshore, mining, outside broadcast and other industrial applications.
Lane Electronics will service existing UK Fibreco customers and develop new business using in-house connector stock, value added cable assemblies and back-to-back supply from the Fibreco facility where required.
The Fibreco product range includes expanded beam cable assemblies that use connectors such as Fibreco Junior, Mini and Senior and D38999, as well as Stratos HMA connectors.
Keeley Jefferies, European distribution manager of Cinch Connectivity Solutions, commented: “Partnering with Lane Electronics with our Fibreco product range gives our customers a wide availability of our product portfolio with short turnaround times, and the ability to service small to large volume requirements.”
Fibreco has an engineering team, and in addition to its standard connector range is able to work with customers to create bespoke connectors in both large and small production volumes. Projects undertaken include heavy duty connectors for oil and gas drilling applications, wet-mate expanded beam inserts for sub-sea connectors, hermetically sealed expanded beam connectors for mil-aero applications and hybrid electrical / optical connectors for naval ballistics applications.
