Diamond has developed the new rugged, reliable, IP 67, push-pull actuating HE-2000™ harsh environment connector with superior optical and mechanical performance for demanding applications.
Built around the innovative Diamond Multipurpose (DM) insert, the HE-2000™ connector incorporates four (4) termini using Diamond's two-component ferrules, assembled with the company's Active Core Alignment (ACA) process for unparalleled fiber core concentricity. Also available are electrical contacts for hybrid E/O applications.
The optical and electrical termini are protected from dust and water with the unique automatic protection shutter on the plug connector and a manual shutter on the bulkhead receptacle.
The HE-2000™ connector is available for MM, SM (PC/APC) and small-core single mode fiber, polarization-maintaining (PM) fiber, and other specialty fiber types.
Furthermore, Diamond splice-on termini can be field terminated with the Diamond ZEUS D50 HE fusion splicer, allowing for in-service repairs and special installations.
