TFOCA I Tactical Fiber Optic Connector

Overview

The TFOCA 1 tactical fiber optic connector provides reliable performance in harsh environments where high cycle mating is of concern. Its hermaphroditic or genderless design allows for multiple cable assemblies to be concatenated without regard for connector interface compatibility. Fully compatible with legacy products, Corning has retooled the TFOCA I with stainless steel alignment sleeves, for improved performance, repeated handling and mating cycles typically required for fiber optic cable deployment and retrieval in a tactical environment. TFOCA I solutions are available in multiple combinations, ranging from plug to plug cable assemblies to panel mounted receptacle breakout assemblies and tactical reel assemblies.
