Designed with rugged and compact housings, Molex's optical industrial assemblies incorporate the high-performance of a fiber optic connection with the versatility of a rugged industrial connector. The assemblies guarantee an environmentally sealed optical connection in one step, with the combined push-pull insertion and bayonet-style mechanical latch. The bulkhead adapter mounts directly in a panel cut-out, serving as a sealed feed-through. The removable connector provides sealing between both the adapter mating-surface, as well as the cable exiting the connector.
Molex's optical industrial assemblies are compatible with many fiber types and cable constructions and are ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications. This assembly is particularly well-suited for long distances or remote connections using either single mode or multimode fiber.
Available in a simplex SC , Duplex LC, and multi-fiber MPO version, these assemblies offer a sealed fiber optic connection to fit many applications from bi-directional single fiber up to 12 fiber ribbon connections. Assemblies are available in pigtails (single-ended), jumpers (dual-ended) and breakout assemblies, to any Molex standard fiber optic connector. The assemblies can be manufactured in lengths from 1 meter to well over 1 kilometer.
The industrial duplex LC assembly has been ratified as a 'Standard Interface' in the ODVA (Open DeviceNet Vendors Association) as a next generation industrial interconnect.
