January 9, 2003--SENKO Advanced Components has secured global distribution rights for the full line of E-2000 fiber-optic connectors and adapters manufactured by Swiss-based cabling systems developer Reichle & De-Massari (R&M). The agreement also names SENKO as the Master Distributor for North America.

The E-2000 line (referred to by R&M as the LSH) includes the E-2000 Compact and Standard fiber-optic connectors, connector levers, housing clips, adaptors, adaptor frames, and mount supports. The E-2000 Compact is the smallest connector type in conformance with the International Standard IEC 61754-15 for the E-2000 family of products, with dimensions corresponding to an RJ45 outlet, allowing for high packing density. The Compact series is designed for secure transmission of high bit-rate protocols used in a wide range of applications, including WANs, LANs and Fiber-to-the-Desk.

Features of the E-2000 line include fast installation, user-friendly push-pull latching, mechanical plug-out protection, and a self-closing dust cover, which protects the ferrule from dust and scratches for enhanced reliability of performance, explain SENKO representatives. Connectors and adaptors come with color-coded unlatching levers.

With the signing of this agreement for the E-2000(tm), SENKO can now offer the full and complete line of all major market fiber-optic interconnects, claims Mark W. Johnson, executive vice president and general manager of SENKO Advanced Components.

The E-2000 is produced under licence of Diamond SA, CH-6616 Losone (Switzerland).
