Fibres & Cabling

MXC multi-fibre connector

US Conec has announced that the availability of the MXC multi-fibre connector will coincide with OFC 2014.  Compared to existing optical connector solutions, the plug and receptacle design provides increased density, lower cost, and fewer components – making it suitable for new equipment card edge requirements driven by implementation of embedded, mid-board optics modules, the company says. PCB space consumption on the inside of the equipment is minimised by combining the traditional adapter and on-card plug into one simple, condensed, single piece housing.

FA-1 North submarine cable system

Reliance Globalcom, a provider of managed network and communication services, and Ciena, the network specialist, have upgraded Reliance Globalcom’s FA-1 North submarine cable system with 100G capacity.

Coax Link Controller

InCoax Networks, a provider of IP over coax solutions, has introduced its next-generation Coax Link Controller, which is the fibre extension over the existing coaxial cabling inside apartment buildings.
 
The company says the new Coax Link Controller can provide up to 1.4 Gbps over the in-building coaxial network and is a cost-effective and competitive solution that makes it possible for operators to ensure network capacity and quality of service for all network subscribers.

FDP optical fibre

Polymicro Technologies, a subsidiary of Molex, has announced improvements to its FDP optical fibre. The latest enhancements improve solarisation of the fibre in deep UV (ultra-violet) applications (190 – 325 nm).
 
'The introduction of fibre FDP revolutionised UV applications. We are pleased to bring customers enhanced FDP fibre with even better qualities to withstand UV exposure,' said Teodor Tichindelean, global product manager.
 

200/230 PolyClad Optical Fibre

Polymicro Technologies, a subsidiary of Molex, has successfully developed an optical fibre comprising a low -OH synthetic fused silica core, PolyClad hard polymer clad and ETFE buffer/jacket. Featuring high tensile strength and minimal bend radius for high reliability, Polymicro’s 200/230 PolyClad Optical Fibre accommodates short-to-medium distance data communications in factory automation and process control applications and withstands harsh temperature, chemical and radiation environments.

Specialty Optical Fibre

Polymicro Technologies, a subsidiary of Molex Incorporated, has extended its specialty optical fibre offering, with the introduction of FBPI optical fibre and Hollow Silica Wavelength fibre products.

ReCoater 2, AutoCoater 2, MiniCoater 2 and ReCoater 2XL

AFL now offers Nyfors Teknologi AB’s new family of recoating products including the ReCoater 2, AutoCoater 2, MiniCoater 2 and ReCoater 2XL. Ideal for restoring the protective coating on optical fibres, NYFORS’ new recoaters are sold exclusively by AFL in the North American market. 

AllWave FLEX /FLEX+

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.

LL-580 optical splicing and distribution enclosure

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.
