Suitable for wireless outdoor applications such as 5G, microwave, robotics, aerospace/defense, and other harsh environments, the multi-fiber cable assemblies can provide high signal data connectivity routing through only one cable connecting multiple units in the field instead of one assembly for each. The assemblies can save space, simplify connections, and offer an economic upgrade solution because they are intended for use without requiring an upgrade of customer applications, says the company.
“Harsh environments demand extremely robust connectors that are easy to use,” says Stefan Borgas, product manager for rugged interconnects at TE Connectivity’s Data and Devices business unit. “Our multi-fiber cable assemblies can deliver outstanding longevity and performance while saving time and money.”
The cable assemblies use bend-insensitive fiber G.657.A2, which can allow for easy, fool-proof installation and reliable performance. In addition, the bayonet-style locking feature provides positive feedback to technicians when fully mated.
