LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, APRIL 12, 2010 — Gepco International (NAB Booth C5643) is pleased to introduce its new HMS Modular Fusion Splice Rack at the 2010 NAB Show August 12-15. This HMS Splice Rack provides a field solution that is easily terminated for the deployment of hybrid fiber connectors in an expandable chassis system.

With an internal cable management and fusion splice tray system, the HMS allows for all electrical and fiber termination to occur within the chassis, streamlining and protecting the cable breakout. Because the fusion splice occurs within the chassis, not in the connector, almost any type of hybrid connector can be terminated with any type of fusion splicer.

“The HMS Fusion Splice Rack provides the ultimate in flexibility where hybrid fiber connections need to be terminated,? said Joe Zajac, Manager, Gepco® Brand Product Engineering & Operations. “Once terminated, the connections are protected within the unit to prevent any possibility of damage from external sources.?

For flexibility in cable options, the HMS features configurable rear cable ports (six plus two) that accommodate a wide range of cable types and combinations. The HMS can be terminated to a variety of combinations of HDC920 9.2mm hybrid fiber, discrete electrical and fiber cables, or up to two HDC3R three-channel hybrid cables.

All HMS configurations come with six electrically isolated connector positions for expandability. Each position can ordered or expanded with LEMO® SMPTE plugs, LEMO® SMPTE sockets, or Neutrik® OpticalCon® format connectors, with future connector modules available as they are released.
