Field-Installable High-Performance Connectors (LEVEL 1 & 2)

Levels Field-Installable High-Performance Connectors (LEVEL 1 & 2) image

UniCam fiber optic connectors are ideal for industrial environments as they are field-installable and install time can be further reduced with the Unicam installation tool kit. UniCam connectors are suitable for Level 1 and 2 industrial environment applications.

  • Connectors can be installed directly to the fibers on tight buffered cables (FTB = Tight Buffer)
  • Connectors require a fan out kit to be installed on loose tube fibers prior to connector termination (FTL = Loose Tube)

Field-Installable Fiber Connectors (LEVEL 3)

The OpDat IP67 Variant 1 fiber connector is field-installable directly to Level 3 tight buffered fiber. This connector must mate with a Variant 1 socket often installed in LEVEL 3 devices,
such as Hirschmann Ethernet switches.

Use the chart below to find the right connector for your environment. Locate the fiber type andconnector type, then choose the appropriate level for your environment and click the part number to view the product details.
