The LC connector is established because of its small size and its very reliable connecting quality. In the last five years it has become the most popular connector in the world. To match the different customer needs, HUBER+SUHNER has enhanced the portfolio consistently. The HUBER+SUHNER LC-XD is taking the LC to a completely new level in packing density and handling.
SC is one of the most common product for reliable networks and is therefor globally used. With its one-piece design, it also provides an easy termination. Handling is comfortable due to its push-pull mechanism.
E-2000™ (LSH) portfolio
E-2000 is a high performance connector which meets the highest standards by excellence in design and manufacturing processes. Only high quality and high precision materials are used to guarantee connections at the highest level. HUBER+SUHNER E-2000 products meet the international standards IEC 61754-15 and TIA 604-16 and are naturally RoHS/REACH compliant.
HUBER+SUHNER launches the first LC connector worldwide with laser/mechanical protection. Thanks to the spring-loaded automatic shutter mechanism COVERINO® stands for highest safety basing on the protection of the ferrule when connector is unplugged. It is the only LC connector currently available on the market with both laser and mechanical protection. The combination of the COVERINO® LC connector and its new protected adapter provides comprehensive dust and laser protection whilst ensuring a highly stable connection.
CLIK! is the new standard portfolio designed especially for the challenges arising with FITH. By keeping new environment in mind, and combining this with a fiber-background of more than 30 years’ experience, HUBER+SUHNER has developed CLIK!, the extremely innovative connector-generation for FITH. With outstanding features such as its blind mating mechanism and its size, which has been specially designed for tight environments, it is the ideal solution for easy FITH-application. CLIK! is not only standardised in accordance with IEC 61754-30, CLIK! is still setting the FITH standard.
FC was one of the first established standards in the fiber optic market with physical contact. The FC is often used in military application because of its screwed locking mechanism.
ST was the first established standard in the fiber optic market with a bayonet mechanism. The ST is often used in industrial and security applications.
SMA was the first established standard in the fiber optic market without physical contact. The SMA is often used in industrial application because of its water tightness and resistance to scratches.
Blink is the new standard connector designed especially for the challenges arising with FITH. By keeping new environment in mind and combining this with a fiber background of more than 30 years’ experience, HUBER+SUHNER has developed Blink, the extremely innovative connector generation for FITH. With its outstanding features, such as dust-proof shutter, laser-protection and a revolutionary release mechanism it is the solution for a safe FITH-application. It is not only safe for users, but also protects the fixed installed fibers and reduces interventions by installers. Blink is not only standardised in accordance with IEC 61754-29, Blink is setting the FITH standard.
LX.5 is a high-performance connector which meets the highest standards by excellence in design and manufacturing processes. Only high quality and high precision materials are used to guarantee connections at the highest level. HUBER+SUHNER LX.5 products meet the international standards IEC 61754-23 and TIA 604-13 and are naturally RoHS/REACH compliant.
Hybrid adapter Portfolio
Our supplier HUBER+SUHNER offers a wide range of hybrid adapter for connections between different connector series and types.
The MTP® portfolio is designed for high density environments using an ultra-compact cable diameter, a bend optimised fiber and flexible cable construction offering a high fiber count. The MTP® trademark stands for highest performance and reliability requirements in the field and is fully compliant with IEC Standard 61754-7 and TIA 604-5 – Type MPO.
MTP® is a connector designed for high-density patching. The colour-coded housings show the differentiated fiber types, polish types and/or connector grades. Our boot colouring offers a fast identification during installation with regards to fiber count. Removable housing allows quick gender change and easy re-polishing.
High fiber count guarantees low space consumption in ducts and racks. The patented floating MT ferrule design ensures fiber contact integrity. The elliptical guide pin tip enhances mating abilities. The high precision guide pins combined with a tightly controlled ferrule design from US Conec provide optimized alignment for superior performance. The MTP brand connector components are fully compliant with IEC Standard 61754-7 and TIA 604-5 – Type MPO.
The MTP® adapter portfolio is designed to meet the different applications in the market and ensures a high-performance connection between all standardized MPO / MTP® connectors. MPO / MTP® brand adapters are fully compliant with IEC Standard 61754-7 and TIA 604-5 – Type MPO
The MTP® accessories are designed to improve the handling and installation of the MTP® product line. The MTP® push-pull clip ensures easy handling for all MTP® connectors in high density environments significantly improving user-friendliness. The MTP® pulling grip fits to all MTP® connector housings and allows MTP® based cable systems to be pulled through containment systems and vertical risers.
Our supplier HUBER+SUHNER is the leading supplier of harsh environment fiber optic interfaces for remote radio heads. RRH are installed in many different types of environments such as coastal areas, urban buildings, and rural tower sites where extreme temperatures, vibration, salt mist, corrosive gases and humidity are all typical challenges. Therefore, robustness and reliability are crucial for the design of RRH interfaces. Additionally, the interface needs to be safe to install and must not cause any installation errors – this is essential to compensate for unskilled installers.
Damage to fibreoptic interfaces is the number one cause of defects during RRH installation. Innovation and field-experience enables HUBER+SUHNER to design leading RRH interfaces like the ODC.
