TACLight™ Fiber Optic Cable Assemblies


The Stran Technologies TACLight hermaphroditic fiber optic cable assemblies family provides rugged, reliable performance in harsh environments where high cycle mating is of concern.  Its design allows for easy field maintenance, and its flexibility allows the plugs to function as both plug and receptacle. These cable assemblies provide robust connectivity solution resistant to corrosion, shock and thermal shock environments.  Popular applications of the TACLight connector based cable assemblies include indoor and outdoor broadcast, pierside and ship-to-shore marine environments.
