US Conec announces the newest addition to the ELiMENT single fiber connector product line — the ELiMENT Duplex LC Uniboot. Building on the high-performance SC and LC ELiMENT product offering, the ELiMENT Duplex LC Uniboot connector is a low profile, stackable design that provides a user-friendly, reliable solution that is optimized for simple factory installation.
Toolless polarity reversal of the ELiMENT Duplex LC Uniboot in the field is effortless. The novel design enables simultaneous rotation of both ferrules while keeping bare fibers from being exposed at any time during polarity reversal. Polarity identification on the ELiMENT Duplex LC Uniboot can be easily verified through a visible color-coded polarity window.
The low profile push-pull housing design allows maximum panel density while the direct push-pull latch provides efficient connector insertion and removal. An optional push-pull tab can be added to deliver ultimate ease of access even in highly congested panels and racks.
US Conec’s highly engineered cable assembly process for the ELiMENT Duplex LC Uniboot with use of novel molded fixtures simplifies handling and yield issues associated with typical uniboot designs. An innovative curing fixture and pre-assembly of the Duplex LC connector ferrules prior to polishing improves throughput and eliminates accidental fiber breaks.
The ELiMENT Duplex LC Uniboot connectors are offered in a variety of colors for multimode, single-mode and APC applications and are available for use with 2.0 and 3.0 mm OD cables.
