Superior performance with protection from the elements. At the heart of this robust family of tactical hermaphroditic fiber optic connectors is the environmentally sealed terminus system, which maintains superior optical performance while resisting dust, moisture, or even liquid submersion, meeting IP-68 requirements.
Easy, quick connections. The field-convertible plug allows the plug to be converted to an in-line receptacle or back to a plug within seconds. This enables plug-to-plug assemblies to be connected end-to-end without regard for which end starts out as male or female. The internal "push-pull" system allows operators to terminate and assemble COTS-83526 plug and receptacles with ease. Unlike competitive products that require O-rings and snap clips, the COTS-83526 design essentially decreases the time and effort required for assembly.
Smart construction for ease of use. The environmentally sealed terminus system allows proper alignment of the 2.5mm ceramic ferrules. This termini is corrosive-resistant, genderless (can be either pin or socket), and easily inserts at 90° angles to the termini retainer. In addition, the insert cap having captivated ceramic alignment sleeves prevents them from becoming misplaced during routine maintenance.
