RMT Boman series

New from Ridgemount Technologies is the RMT Boman series, which offers breakout manifolds of various sizes to accommodate different cable constructions and different fan-out tubes. They are ideal for pre-connection of both indoor and outdoor cables, the company says.

They have been designed to ensure that a consistent product is manufactured with a simple assembly tooling; fibre failures due to twist and tension are prevented, and performance is safeguarded. Applications include CATV and broadcast, data centre SANs, LAN ethernet networks and telecom networks.
