LEMO has launched a new hybrid fiber optic connector for interconnection of HD video cameras in the professional broadcast industry.
The new hybrid fiber optic connector—called 3K.93C.Y series—is fully compatible with existing SMPTE and ARIB standard. It has fewer components, allowing easy assembly and reducing the termination costs for the hybrid fiber optic connector.
This new product has been engineered to be more tolerant of operator variations and therefore performance can be more easily optimized during the termination process. It includes a new contact called the FS fiber contact. In addition, the new insulator is made in two sections and the sideways insertion of the optical contacts prevent any push-back on the optical contacts. No more optical extractor is required to remove these contacts. Finally, the connector can be easily identified with its new shell design and fiber optic contact shape.
