Rugged ODVA-compliant connectors designed for harsh environment applications, such as WiMax, Long Term Evolution (LTE), and Remote Radio Heads using Fibre To The Antenna (FTTA) connectivity, have been developed by CONEC.
The water-resistant and IP67-rated LC Series provide increased protection from contamination and moisture in addition to mechanical stability, temperature resistance and vibration immunity. They use OFNR (optical fibre nonconductive riser) breakout cables rated for outdoor usage and/or direct burial. Additional features include a 1/6th turn bayonet coupling for a fast and secure mate/unmate, even with gloved hands. The connectors also ensure a continuously secure connection and are dustproof and weatherproof, with a silicone ring seal that makes a watertight connection to the panel.
