opticalCON is based on LC-Duplex connectors but eliminates their inherent weaknesses, guaranteeing a safe, dust protected, and ruggedized connection. opticalCON DUO’s compatibility with conventional LC connectors at both the front and the rear of the chassis connectors offers users the choice of using cost effective LC cables or ruggedized opticalCON cabling, depending on the requirements at hand. This flexibility to choose cost-effective LC cabling for system integration or ruggedized opticalCON for mobile applications benefits both OEMs and system integrators.
The Neutrik opticalCON connector accommodates 2 or 4 LC or MTP-12 /24 connectors in a ruggedized all-metal housing featuring a push-pull locking mechanism. The optical connection is protected against dirt and dust by an automatic shutter.
