Neutrik recently introduced its new OpticalCon system at the recent InfoComm 2005, which reportedly increases the reliability and maximizes the uptime for fiber optic connection systems.
The new system is based on a standard optical LC-Duplex connection; however, the OpticalCon enables up to four copper wires to run power or data signals through. A special SMPTE-version1 has been optimized for broadcast applications, which provides an additional ground-shell contact.
For installation, one can connect a conventional LC-Duplex connector on the rear, which causes the chassis connector to act as a “feed-through.” The OpticalCon cable connector comes pre-assembled with a choice of three mobile field cables, which can be ordered at almost any length.
The OpticalCon features all-metal housing; optical connection cables are protected from dust and dirt through automatic sealing covers and gaskets. OpticalCon uses conventional LC connectors and has a Push-Pull locking mechanism. Colored labeling plates are included to identify the fiber mode.
