Diamond USA

Diamond USA (booth 2710) will highlight its exclusive Power Solution (PS) connectors, which are designed for applications carrying up to 3W optical power over singlemode fibre. Diamond can terminate a wide variety of cable and fibre types using industry standard connectors like E-2000, F-3000, or SC, FC, ST, and MPO. The company also offers its range of PS connectors with different expanded beam technologies to suit the final application.

Also on display from Diamond will be its multi-fibre interconnect assemblies. The DiaFlex contains a Diamond multi-fibre connector for 12 fibres (24 upon request). A special feature of the new DiaFlex fan-out connection is that the fibre whips can be removed and replaced via a connector system in the divider. This provides greater flexibility in the installation of fibre-optic networks.
