ITT's LC Fiber Optic Connector Meets Lucent & Telcordia Requirements

LC connector provides increased optical stability at high temperatures, superior mechanical durability...

SANTA ANA, Calif. - March 17, 2008 - ITT Interconnect Solutions, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of connectors, interconnects, and cable assemblies, has developed a fiber optic connector for operation in harsh environments. The Cannon PHD SuperLC connector features a small form factor and maintains the same high optical performance characteristics of a standard LC product while operating in severe environments.

"Until now, the LC configuration commonly used to connect fiber optic devices was not able to function reliably in high temperature or high vibration environments," said Keith Teichmann, director of marketing for ITT Interconnect Solutions. "With superior mechanical durability, including a thermal plastic housing and a locking feature to prevent mechanical release, the connector is capable of withstanding high temperatures and thermal cycling, along with elevated levels of shock and vibration."

The Cannon PHD SuperLC connector meets or exceeds Lucent 640-252-053 and Telcordia GR-326 requirements. The connector is ideal for military/aerospace, telecom service, and industrial data communications applications.

The SuperLC connector features a tunable optical cartridge that functions as a standalone optical element separate from the connector housing and accepts multi-mode or single-mode ferrules. The locking mechanism also prevents thermal stress of the latch at high temperatures. Crimp termination of the cable to the rear body ensures ease-of-use and quick field repair.

Typical pricing for the Cannon PHD Super LC connector ranges from $20 to $25 depending on quantity. Lead time is from 4 to 6 weeks.
