Connector Family

what is the f 3000 fiber optic connector system
What is the F-3000™ fiber optic connector system?
  • The followingquestions must be answered:
  • What advantages does the F-3000 fiber optic connector grant?
  • What are future market requirements?
  • What are the main parameters of the F-3000 connector?
  • The answers are as follows:
  • Includes all the technical (mechanical & optical) advantages of the E-2000,the F-3000™ offers the same high quality transmission in a reduced size (SFF).
  • Market requirements are always growing, an up-to-date connector must be suitable for long distance transmissions as well as for fiber-to-the-X applications (access domain).
  • Packing density and modularity to cover all interconnection tasks using the same high performance basic components.
