Fluke Networks: Fluke Networks Metal LC Connector

Feb. 6, 2022
Fluke Networks’ Metal LC Connector is the first durable metal LC reference-grade connector for testing cords and launch fibers.
Fluke Networks’ Metal LC Connector is the first durable metal LC reference-grade connector for testing cords and launch fibers. Traditional LC connectors use a single-piece plastic design that flexes the latching mechanism and eventually breaks. The Fluke Networks Metal LC latching system uses a multi-piece metal design that is not part of the body and does not flex, significantly improving the life of the latching mechanism and extending the life of the LC connector, test reference cords, and launch fibers.

Judge’s Comment: “A small product with a big impact, effectively eliminating the constant break-replace lifecycle of plastic latches.”
