Press Releases

Pasternack Enterprises, a manufacturer and supplier of RF and microwave products, has introduced a line of ultra-broadband power dividers capable of 50 GHz.

These millimeter-wave power dividers (also referred to as RF power splitters) are ideal for use in radar systems, electronic warfare equipment, fibre optic systems, 10G Ethernet and any application that requires high frequency, multi-octave performance.

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.

Tratos, a manufacturer of electrical, electronic and fibre optic cables, has launched the AllWave FLEX and the AllWave FLEX+ bend-optimised single-mode fibre range.

The range has been developed with fibre optic network solutions manufacturer OFS in order to offer customers a solution for any application that requires exceptionally small bend diameters.

OpTek Systems has launched the second generation of its bench-top tool for termination of optical interconnects. The company says the LaserCleave is a compact, production-ready platform designed to maximise productivity in optical connector manufacturing.

Central to the LaserCleave-1500 technology’s core value is the elimination of mechanical scribing, which is prone to fibre chips and hackle, and the reduction of mechanical polishing steps that are used in the traditional finishing of connectors.

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.

AFL has launched the LL-580 optical splicing and distribution enclosure, designed for organising, splicing and interconnecting fibres.

The enclosure addresses the need to patch, patch and splice, express cut/drop fibres and manage wavelengths (WDM or splitters) in a single enclosure. AFL says that, given its flexibility, the enclosure is an ideal fit for business service hand-offs, MDU distribution and connectivity, cellular backhaul and other commercial services that require weather-proof field connectivity.

AFL has introduced the Fujikura 19S fusion splicer, a fixed, V‑groove single fibre splicer, the latest in several new field splicer solutions launched by the company in 2013.

The company says the device retains the proven ruggedised features pioneered by Fujikura, but incorporates automated and enhanced user control capabilities to increase splicing efficiency.

PI (Physik Instrumente), a provider of precision alignment and motion-control equipment for photonics, nanotechnology and semiconductor applications, is offering a high-precision automated fibre alignment system with a controller and software.

The company says the new H-206 alignment system can align fibres, collimators, fibre bundles and arrays quickly and efficiently.

Anritsu has launched its new Fibre Visualizer tool. 

The company says that, as a function on the MT9083 series of optical time-domain reflectometers (OTDR),  the Fibre Visualizer provides a new level of insight into optical fibre cables, connections and splices.

This enables installers to more quickly and reliably check the quality of an optical fibre installation, using automated processing on the test equipment rather than requiring expert analysis of an image or trace.

Ametek, a provider of underwater cable and connector solutions for military and commercial applications, has developed the technology to produce a glass-sealed fibre optic 'feedthru' (FOFT) for extreme high-pressure, high-temperature applications.
