Kit Provides Environmental and Mechanical Protection of Cable-to-Transceiver Interface
Chandler, Arizona, July 30, 2010 – Radiall USA, Inc. introduces its new R2CT connection kit, which provides a waterproof, sealed connection for fiber-to-the-antenna (FTTA), remote radio head equipment, and similar outdoor applications where a protected interface is needed. The field-installable kit provides low-cost sealing at the transceiver-to-cable interface and ensures robust mechanical and environmental performance.
The kit is designed for optical systems using SFP transceivers and duplex LC-terminated fiber-optic cable. The kit can be reused, allowing cables and transceivers to be changed in the field, including front-panel swapping of transceivers. The kits can also be assembled over existing cables.
Sealing levels are IP65, with IP67 optionally available, with a durability of 100 mating cycles minimum and a temperature range from -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C. The mated connection has a retention force of 200 N (45 lb).
The kit uses a receptacle attached to the equipment panel and a plug assembly over the cable. The plug and receptacle use a double bayonet locking system to allow a toolless, hand-tightened connection. The plug assembly includes a protection cap that can be used for pulling cable.
The R2CT connection kit can easily be used with other connectors and interfaces, such as RJ-45 or USB connections.
