3M has announced the availability of the single-mode OGI multifiber system, which is being positioned as a technological improvement over existing parallel optic solutions.

The high-density panel mount and backplane feed-through system includes multifiber cable assemblies, multifiber ruggedized fan-out assemblies, panel mount couplings, daughter card couplings, and backplane couplings. Panel mount couplings are available in single and four-port versions.

Backplane blind-mate quad couplings hold four OGI connectors, each of which houses eight- or 12-fiber MT ferrules in a half-inch nominal interface. The metal components in the coupling bodies improves EMI shielding, while an independent shutter system in the couplings provides eye safety.

The single-mode OGI multifiber cable assemblies are available in both eight- and 12-fiber cables. Ruggedized fan-out assemblies are available only in eight-fiber cables at this time. 3M single-mode OGI standard and ruggedized fan-outs use an OGI connector on one end and discrete connectors (ST brand, LC, SC, FC) on the breakout end. They are claimed by the company to meet higher pull-strength requirements for extensive handling applications.
