Gepco-manufactured Neutrik opticalCON connectors

As an authorized manufacturer of opticalCON cable assemblies, Gepco is terminating custom lengths of tactical fiber cables with Neutrik’s opticalCON connectors. Based on a standard optical LC-Duplex connection, Neutrik’s opticalCON increases the reliability and maximizes the uptime for fiber-optic connection systems. With the company’s recent introduction of IP65 rated model, the fiber-optic connector system has been upgraded for dust-tight and water jet protection.

In addition to the new Neutrik opticalCON cable assemblies, Gepco has added Amphenol TAC-4 (4-channel) and TAC-12 (12-channel) hermaphroditic connectors. These connectors are industry-standard, multichannel formats designed to withstand use and abuse in harsh environments.

As with all of the company’s fiber assemblies, both the Neutrik and Amphenol assemblies are factory terminated by Gepco and feature precision contacts that offer UPC quality to achieve –55dB return loss specifications.

“To meet the demands of the increasing amount of fiber optic applications in the broadcast and professional AV markets, we have expanded our fiber options to provide a wider variety of fiber interconnect solutions,” says Scott Fehl, Gepco’s product development and marketing manager. “Neutrik has a reputation for high-quality connector products and we are looking forward to being a part of that. The combination of Neutrik’s opticalCON and Gepco’s assembly capabilities will further provide our users with a reliable fiber-optic interconnect solution that can be manufactured and delivered quickly and on-time.”

The assemblies are joining the variety of fiber solutions that Gepco currently offers, including SMTPE 304M hybrid fiber camera cables (using Lemo or Canare brand connectors), ST/SC/LC multi-mode or single-mode snakes, indoor permanent installation cables, as well as tactical and portable-use cables.

Gepco will be at InfoComm 09 in Orlando, June 17-19, at Booth 5813.
