Revolutionary fiber optic products for military use

The revolutionary Expanded Beam Performance technology provides high-end transmission characteristics with ultra-low attenuation values over many mating cycles. Since there is no direct contact between the contact ends, they are insensitive to dirt and can be easily cleaned. In near-use conditions, the contact transition enables up to 25,000 mating cycles with compressed air cleaning after 5,000 mating cycles.

The ODU AMC ® Expanded Beam Performance Series T Size 9 with an outer diameter of less than 19 mm is the world’s smallest 12-channel lens connector that ensures reliable transmission with no loss of signal path. The excellent optical performance remains unchanged even under high mating cycles, heavy mechanical stress and other environmental influences.

Robust, application-specific connector systems

ODU connectors for the military, security, and communication technology offer the highest level of signal integrity through 360° shielding. Five-finger coding and colour coding provide support in extreme situations and prevent mismating. Even on the smallest installation space, different configurations are possible. The rugged enclosures are waterproof to IP6K9K, non-reflective and available with different connection types and locking mechanisms.

Robust under high loads and extreme temperatures, resistant to dust, water and vibration. Optimised for demanding applications due to high resilience and transmission reliability, even under the most technically challenging environmental conditions.
