Crimp and cleave connectivity solution for industrial networks

July 2019 Enclosures, Cabling & Connectors

OFS, a leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of innovative fibre optic network products, has announced the launch of its new LC Crimp and Cleave connectivity solution for industrial networks. The LC Crimp and Cleave connector takes advantage of the advanced optical and mechanical properties of HCS (hard clad silica) and Graded Index HCS optical fibres, attaching to the cable through mechanical means rather than traditional epoxy/polish methods.

Fast (100 Mb/sec) and Gigabit Ethernet (1000 Mb/sec) data rates in industrial networks demand higher bandwidth and real-time, low-latency communications. The increasing use of intelligent electronic devices, utility-grade rugged Internet Protocol (IP) routers, and Ethernet switches is driving IP-based communications on the production floor and new demands in factory automation and industrial networking applications.

A high bandwidth, rugged, and reliable cabling solution is indispensable for the growing demand in industrial networking applications as data rates in industrial settings grow. OFS’ GiHCS optical fibre in a low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) cable construction with easy-to-use Crimp and Cleave LC connectors allow technicians an easy connector installation for harsh environments.

“What was historically a 10 minute process for installing fibre optic terminations is now made simpler and easier with OFS’ new Crimp and Cleave technology,” said Mike Hines, marketing manager for industrial and energy markets at OFS. “Designed with the field installer in mind, technicians with minimal fibre optic experience can rapidly install new, or repair damaged, fibre optic cables with OFS’ Crimp, Cleave and Leave LC technology.”

Advantages of this new GiHCS industrial cabling solution include:

• Wide GiHCS cable operating temperature range: -20 to 80°C.

• Resistance to abrasion, vibration and industrial chemicals.

• Indoor and outdoor use.

• High tensile strength.

• Fast (100 Mb/sec) and Gigabit (1000 Mb/sec) Ethernet compatible.

• Compatibility with most common small format pluggable (SFP) transceivers.

• Fibre optic specialists are not required.

• No power, no epoxy, no gel, no polishing required for termination process.

• Minutes to learn, seconds to connect.
