A fiber-optic connector for operation in harsh environments has been developed by ITT Interconnect Solutions. The Cannon PHD SuperLC connector features a small form factor and maintains the same high optical performance characteristics of a standard LC product while operating in severe environments.

The connector is capable of withstanding high temperatures and thermal cycling, along with elevated levels of shock and vibration, said ITT. This connector meets or exceeds Lucent 640-252-053 and Telcordia GR-326 requirements. The connector is suitable for military/aerospace, telecom service, and industrial data communications applications.

The SuperLC connector features a tunable optical cartridge that functions as a standalone optical element separate from the connector housing and accepts multi-mode or single-mode ferrules. The locking mechanism also prevents thermal stress of the latch at high temperatures. Crimp termination of the cable to the rear body ensures ease-of-use and quick field repair.

Pricing typically ranges from $20 to $25 depending on quantity.
