Neutrik introduced the new opticalCon Quad at the NAB (Booth N7929) show this week.
OpticalCon Quad is a four-channel version of its protected fiber optic connector system designed specifically for multichannel point-to-point cabling applications. It is also IP65 rated for dust tight and water jet protection.
The new connector was designed to provide several fiber solutions for any broadcast or live event. It features variations including 4-channel, 4-channel X-treme and Triple-Split 12-channel assemblies.
“With the introduction of our upgraded opticalCON QUAD, we have fine-tuned our technology to offer the broadcast market the ultimate in fiber connectivity,” says Pete Milbery, managing director of Neutrik USA. “Our new opticalCON QUAD is ideal for any multi-channel point-to-point application where 4-channels of fiber are needed. More specifically, broadcasters now have the ability to fiber-link several broadcast trucks together for a solid and convenient connectivity solution.”
Available with four- (NKO4M) or 12-channel (NKO12S) mobile field cables, its Triple-Split 12-channel cable features three opticalCON-4 connectors on both ends, allowing standardized four-channel connectivity for multi-channel point-to-point cabling.
OpticalCON QUAD X-treme is also available for road-ready applications such as mobile and outdoor broadcasts, touring and rental and staging. It offers a cut-proof and rodent resistant double jacket with a glass yarn armored cable construction. opticalCON QUAD’s new chassis connector (NO4FDW-R) features a laser protective metal shutter seal with a two-component rubber gasket.
The opticalCON also features a rugged connection, all metal housing and heavy-duty cable retention. opticalCON uses conventional LC connectors, which are easy to clean, and has a Push-Pull locking mechanism. In addition, the colored labeling plates are included to identify the fiber mode.
