IP68 Rated Cable Assemblies have weatherproof metal ruggedized connectors and are available in 2-24 fibers.
Based on the N-Type RF threaded connector housing, this interconnect system provides superior optical performance in outdoor environments using LC-style 1.25mm ceramic ferrules for ODLC connectors and MT-style ferrules for ODMC-12/24 connectors.
The corrosion resistant metal housing provide a durable and environmentally protected solution for optical connectivity in areas exposed to elements such as rain, snow, dirt, and other types of contamination.
These assemblies mate using a plug and socket interface.
