HUBER+SUHNER introduces its new Q-ODC-12 interface for industrial and FTTA applications. The new connectors have a high fiber density, based on the QN push-pull mating system. They are similar in size to the two-fiber Q-ODC but can connect up to 12 fibers in a single mating step.
The connectors have achieved good results in a series of rigorous industry tests to ensure their durability and performance under extreme outdoor conditions, proving them to be extremely water-proof, dust-proof and corrosion-resistant. In particular the connectors survived 30 days' submersion in over three meters of water and passed extended IP68 waterproof testing. They have been subjected to stringent vibration testing without suffering any performance loss.
The fiber optic connectors also achieved excellent performance in the IP6X dust ingress testing and in extended IPX8 tests for water immersion.
