New Fischer FiberOptic Connector Secures Premium Optical Performance In Extreme Environments

ST-PREX, Switzerland, November 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Fischer Connectors releases its new push-pull FiberOptic interconnecting solution specially designed for premium optical performance in extreme environments. As one of the worldwide leaders in designing, manufacturing and distributing high performance connectors, Fischer monitors the fiber optic trends closely and adapts its connectors to the users' needs. The brand-new Fischer FiberOptic interconnecting technology offers the essential quality and stability needed for an optical link combined with extreme robustness, easy mating and easy cleaning.

The Fischer FiberOptic with two ( FO2) or four ( FO4) optical channels features some major revolutionary novelties. Fischer Connectors is able to offer a fiber solution that is extremely quick and easy to clean thanks to a removable mono-block mate adapter and to the possibility of rinsing the unmated connectors freely under water or in an ultrasound bath.

The Fischer FiberOptic connector will perform perfectly in harsh and extreme environments. It has a high ingress protection of IP68 (2m/24hours) when mated and IP67 in unmated conditions. In addition, Fischer Connectors' FiberOptic optical performance is 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: quick, safe and easy locking.

'The new push-pull Fischer FiberOptic connector provides the perfect mix of features needed by a reliable FiberOptic inter-connecting solution: premium optical performance and robustness, blind mating and easy maintenance. This is definitely a benefit for the users of the Fischer FiberOptic FO2 and FO4,' says Dominique Glauser, CEO of Fischer Connectors Group.

The Fischer FiberOptic connector can be used in a wide range of fields requiring faultless quality in outdoor or demanding applications, such as Transport & Mobility, Telecom, Energy, Defense & Security, Broadcast, Construction & Infrastructure and Medical Devices.

Key specifications:  
  • IP68 2meters/24hours Mated & IP67 (1meter/30min) Unmated Ingress Protection
  • Extreme Environment FiberOptic Solution (Norm IEC 61753-1 Cat. E)
  • Multi-channel (2 & 4), SM & MM Optical Fibers, UPC & APC Polishing
  • Push-pull Mating Plugs & Receptacles
  • Optional Gas Tight Panel Receptacles (IP68 or <10 -6mbar l/s)
