HUBER+SUHNER says it will use ECOC 2018, September 24-26 in Rome, to launch the COVERINO LC connector. The fiber-optic connector targets fiber to the home (FTTH) applications and offers the level of connectivity safety broadband consumers will desire, the company adds.
The COVERINO LC fiber connector comes with a matching adaptor to offer full mechanical, dust, and laser protection, says HUBER+SUHNER. The resultant protection makes the fiber-optic connector suitable for consumer self-install applications. The connector also is available with the company’s patented push-pull functionality, which enables easy installation, even in high-density environments. The latch mechanism also supports connectivity with one hand.
The connector’s automatic, spring-loaded shutter mechanism offers safety protection when the connector is unplugged. The COVERINO LC is fully compatible with standard LC connectors according to IEC 61754-20, adds HUBER+SUHNER.
“The COVERINO LC is a solution of much research and development, drawing on our many years of experience in the industry,” said Nesa Scopic, head of product management, Fiber Connectivity Indoor at HUBER+SUHNER. “Handling cables in the home can always be a safety concern, especially for consumers with children, but our strong capabilities in this area have meant we have been able to develop a completely safe solution.”
HUBER+SUHNER will display the COVERINO LC at booth 410 at ECOC.
