Optical Cable Corporation’s (OCC®) Pierside family of fibre optic connectors provides extreme flexibility in deployable system architectures and eliminates the gender orientation and logistics of deployment, re-deployment or field system reconfiguration. This durable, high-quality 6–12 channel fibre optic hermaphroditic connector system is designed to meet stringent performance and design characteristics established by the United States Navy in accordance with NAVSEA 7379171 and 7379172 drawings.
The OCC Pierside style of multi-channel fibre optic connector is designed to enable “genderless” mating capabilities, without regard for male or female gender configuration of the interfacing connector to which it is mated. The coupling nut of hermaphroditic plug connectors can be selectively adjusted to convert the plug connector to a male or female coupling thread, allowing a hermaphroditic plug to couple to another plug configured in the opposite gender. This genderless characteristic allows cable assemblies with hermaphroditic plugs on both ends to be deployed without concern for orientation (male or female) when used in a “daisy-chained” configuration.
“The Pierside family of connectors was derived from the need for naval vessels to communicate with logistics networks whose interfaces are located at docks or piers,” says Barney Dean, Business Development Specialist. “ “When combined with the OCC NAVSEA approved pierside fiber optic cable and MARS reeling system components, the pierside product line provides the most robust, versatile fiber optic cable assembly systems available.”
A complete complement of connector options are available, including replacement dust caps, strain relief receptacles and 90° plugs and are available in single-mode, multimode or a combination of both. read more : http://www.cnfiberoptics.com
