L-com Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, has added new products to its lineup of industrial, ruggedized, and mil-spec fiber optic products, including connectors, adapters, and connector/adapter dust covers.  The new products, all designed for the "ST" fiber connector type, are specifically designed for military, aircraft, spacecraft, shipboard, and harsh-condition land-based applications.

The two new varieties of products are designed either to meet the military specification MIL-C-83522 , or to be commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) ruggedized, and include connectors, couplers, and dust covers with lanyards.  In both styles, options are available for 2 mm, 2.5 mm, and 3 mm fiber types, and component bodies can be purchased as either nickel plated brass or stainless steel.  The connectors come in either locking or non-locking styles.

MIL M83522 ST Connector, Courtesy: L-ComL-com's many solutions to fiber optic technology's sensitivity to environmental conditions include bend insensitive (BI) fiber cables, IP66/67-rated fiber cables, and military grade 62.5/125 fiber optic patch cables.  These new additions allow for custom cable creation in the field or in factories where military or ruggedized standards are required.

"Our broad fiber optic offering has been a mainstay in the connectivity industry for years, but catering to the special fiber applications that are becoming more common is our ultimate aim," said David Gallagher, Product Manager. "These products are tested, extremely high quality, and very capable for the needs of special fiber applications."

The new products are currently available on the L-com web site along with free downloads of datasheets and 2D engineering drawings for more information.
