Harting unveils expanded beam fibre-optic cable assembly

Harting expanded beam connector

Harting has developed an expanded beam fibre-optic connector for providing high-bandwidth transmission in the harsh environments found in tunnel drilling and mining applications, where industrial Ethernet over fibre-optic cable is becoming the transmission medium of choice.  

The long distances involved, together with the high bandwidths that are required, make the use of fibre-optic cable essential, but since optical interfaces are very sensitive to contamination, a rugged and more reliable solution has to be devised.

Fibre-optic transceivers

Harting has developed a range of fibre-optic transceivers suitable for industrial applications by integrating electro-optical converters in small-form factor (SFF and SFP) packages with PushPull connector technology.

The company says the new devices have been developed in response to increasing demands for high-reliability optical communication devices that will withstand the harsh environmental conditions and vibration encountered in industrial applications, while offering simple handling and installation.
