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.

The transceivers are based on over-moulded Harting PushPull cable assemblies with LC duplex mating faces, and offer IP 65/67 protection and ease of handling. The easy-to-integrate PushPull device side allows fibre-optic devices to be added to existing solutions, such as I/O boxes, camera systems or industrial controllers. The transceiver module can be equipped with any SFF/SFP transceivers, and can be connected to the base plate via Harting har-flex connectors.

Harting says it has has worked with leading customers from the industrial automation sector to develop this concept. The company will also produce customer-specific versions to meet individual requirements.
