extron-fiber-optic-cables.jpg

Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the addition of pre-terminated and bulk fiber optic cables, cable termination tools, field-installable connectors, and test equipment to complete our line of fiber products. Combined with the existing line of extenders, matrix switchers and distribution amplifiers, these new products comprise the most comprehensive line of fiber optic products in the industry and enable transmission of pixel-perfect video, audio, and control over extreme distances. Bend-insensitive, plenum-rated bulk cable and factory-terminated cable assemblies in various lengths are available in both OM4 multimode and singlemode versions. For bulk cable, the Fiber Optic Termination Kit and Quick LC fiber optic connectors enable fast and reliable termination in the field. To ensure system-wide reliability, use the FPM 101 fiber optic power meter in conjunction with either the FLS 850 Fiber Optic Light Source for multimode cabling or the FLS 1310 Fiber Optic Light Source for singlemode solutions to measure optical power and loss throughout the fiber optic infrastructure. These new accessory items round out and complement the extensive line of fiber optic products from Extron, which includes switchers, matrix switchers, signal processors, extenders, and distribution amplifiers. more
