LAKEWOOD, NJ â€“ Neutrik expands opticalCONâ€™s line of pre-assembled mobile field cables to include a cost effective camera link set up, opticalCON Low Voltage Camera / Single mode Hybrid cable. Neutrikâ€™s newest addition to opticalCONâ€™s pre-terminated cable offerings is ideal for any broadcast application including touring staging productions, live performances and mobile broadcast studios/trucks.
opticalCON cable connectors are pre-assembled with a choice of six mobile field cables. The range of cables includes rugged hybrid, robust and lightweight mobile field cables with 2 multi- or single mode fibers, a 4 pole Y-split and a SMPTE cable. opticalCON now offers a cost effective Low Voltage Camera / Single mode Hybrid cable that is optimized for camera link systems (ENG/SNG), camera adapter systems, camera cranes and powered down converter boxes for broadcast applications where only ELV (Extra Low Voltage, less than 50 VAC) is required.
â€œOur opticalCON product is continually evolving to meet the very latest in our consumerâ€™s technology needs,â€? says Jim Cowan, president of Neutrik USA. â€œIncorporating a low voltage camera cable into our fiber assemblies is another feature that makes opticalCON a robust solution for a variety of applications.â€?
The IP65 rated opticalCON increases the reliability and maximizes the uptime for fiber optic connection systems. While this new system is based on a standard optical LC-Duplex connection; the opticalCON improves this original design to ensure a safe and rugged connection. It 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.
In order to create a simplified installation, one can connect a conventional LC-Duplex connector on the rear, which causes the chassis connector to act as a â€œfeed-through.â€? 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 also features a rugged connection, all metal housing and heavy-duty cable retention. opticalCON uses conventional LC connectors, which are easy to clean, and has a Push-Pull locking mechanism. It features an automatic sealing shutter which avoids any transceiver contamination on-site and also helps users avoid vandalism by “protecting” the transceiver. In addition, the colored labeling plates are included to identify the fiber mode.
Neutrik manufactures a wide array of XLR connectors and receptacles, jacks and plugs, speaker connectors and accessories for the professional audio industry. Neutrik USA is located at 195 Lehigh Avenue, Lakewood, NJ 08701.
