The versatile optical multi-format EMI adapter provides users with one adapter interface for three connector styles. In addition, this new adapter provides EMI protection in front-panel applications.

The two-position multi-format adapter is available in a single-screw, rear-mount configuration which accepts simplex LC connectors on the internal side and simplex LC, MU, or LX.5 connectors on the user side. This design allows the equipment manufacturer to have a consistent LC internal interface while allowing end users to select the most appropriate connector (LC, MU, or LX.5) for their applications, without having to change adapters or re-configure the equipment. The angled-mount design cut-outs are unique to this adapter. Internal shutters are standard, ensuring eye laser-safety protection.

The multi-format EMI shielding adapters are designed to address mechanical design requirements to limit EMI emissions from the equipment front panel. These adapters are constructed with a die-cast mounting body with an EMI gasket that seals the adapters to the panel and a polymer user interface which decreases contamination and connector wear during high-use applications. Multi-format EMI adapters increase the shielding effectiveness while enhancing the front panel aesthetics compared to traditional plastic adapters.
