TFOCA GenX Hybrid 2×2 Fiber Optic – Copper Connector

Overview

The TFOCA GenX Fiber Optic / Copper connectors provides the ultimate hybrid solution where both fiber optic and copper contacts have been incorporated into one connector. Built on the standard TFOCA GenX hermaphroditic fiber optic connector, the hybrid 2 x 2 connector features 2 fiber optic termini and 2 copper 16AWG contacts for low power transmission. The design and packaging of these connectors provide a robust connectivity solution resistant to corrosion, mechanical and thermal shock environments while providing easy field maintenance.

Applications

  • Deployable Military Tactical Systems
  • Outdoor Fiber Optic Networks
  • Emergency Restoration Systems
  • Mobile Command and Control Platforms
  • Tactical Electro-Optic Sensor Systems
