ORLANDO, FL, JUNE 14, 2013 ? The RapcoHorizon Company, a leading manufacturer of audio/video interfacing and cable equipment, unveils Pro Co Data’s TFOCA-II Connector Series at InfoComm 2013 (Booth 709). A series of hermaphroditic-style connectors, the next-generation TFOCAs are ideal for use in unforgiving environments, such as broadcast, satellite, military, aerospace and government applications.
Available in four-, six- or 12-channel fiber connections and featuring physical contact-style ceramic zirconium termini, the connectors and corresponding cables are available in a variety of colors and materials. The company’s black anodized aluminum option is perfect for use in broadcast environments, while the matte green aluminum or steel offering is intended for use by the military and geological industries. A brass version is also available for areas where fires are a concern, such as coal mines. As its structure prevents explosions, the stainless steel option is best for nuclear power plants and oil/gas refineries.
“The ruggedness and quality of the TFOCA connectors and the availability of a broad range of colors and materials are of utmost importance to the industries that use them,” explains Josh Welsh, technical services manager for Pro Co Data, a RapcoHorizon Company brand. “The TFOCA-II connectors have become so highly regarded that the four-channel versions were recently standardized by the U.S. Army as the next generation of fiber-optic connectors for the military’s tactical deployable network applications.”
To add to the TFOCA-II’s customizable features, the connector design supports 50/125, 62.5/125 and single-mode 9/125 optical fiber cables as well as hybrid combinations.
