Duplex LC fibre optic connector has extra optical fibre connection
Rugged connector and component manufacturer Bulgin introduces a rugged duplex LC fibre optic connector specialised for use in harsh environments.
The 6000 series fibre LC duplex connector contains an additional optical fibre connection for applications where separate transmit and receive cables are required.
In comparison to a simplex optical fibre cable and connector, the additional glass fibre on the duplex cable can also be used as a built-in obsolescence in mission-critical applications, or to double the data transmission capabilities where required.
Like the 4000 Series LC Simplex connector which was launched by Bulgin earlier this year, the 6000 Series LC duplex connector is suited for outdoor television broadcast, FTTX (fibre to the x), server room engineering, civil engineering, aviation and rail applications.
With low insertion loss (average: less than 0.1 dB, max: 0.2 dB), Bulgin states that the 6000 series Fibre duplex connector offers reliable performance regardless of the application environment.
With its IP69K and IP68-rated sealing caps, the connector provides protection against dirt and water ingress (fully submersed up to two weeks at 10m). In addition, says the company, the Mil-Tac quality cable ensures the connector is suitable for any type of harsh environment where deployment and retrieval for reuse may be required.
Featuring a secure 30-degree twist-lock connection, this connector accommodates durable mechanical mating. The rugged housing is made from thermo-resistant plastic and measures 32mm in diameter and a maximum of 78.4mm in length.
The connector is offered either with pre-assembled patch cords or assembly kits for termination in the field. Kits are also available for inline and chassis connectors in order to build the sealed harsh-environment connector around a standard LC duplex interface.
Bulgin manufactures a range of industry-leading rugged connectors, fuse holders, battery holders, switches and indicators designed for use in the most challenging of environments.
Headquartered in Cambridge, UK, Bulgin also has offices in all key global regions and an extensive sales and distribution network spanning 65 countries. Its manufacturing facilities are based in the UK and Tunisia.
