Telecast introduces MX fiber connector

Telecast Fiber Systems has launched the MX fiber-optic connector for television broadcast production. The miniature, multi-fiber connector uses expanded-beam technology to provide reliable performance in harsh field environments.

The new MX reduces the problem of dirty connectors in field production. Ordinary pin-and-socket connectors tend to collect and trap dirt in the female socket, making them difficult to clean before use. With expanded-beam technology, each connector half uses a precision lens to expand the light leaving one fiber to more than 45 times its original diameter before being refocused into the mating fiber. The connector's use of flush-lensed windows means difficult-to-reach recesses or pin-alignment sleeves have been eliminated.
