Protected optical contacts prevent dirt contamination

HARTING’s new PushPull SFP XS fibre-optic connector is designed to address the biggest challenge to the use of optical connectors in industry: their susceptibility to dirt and damage to the contact surfaces forming the interface with the transceiver which converts the optical signal into an electrical signal.

Contamination in this area can result in poor or useless signals, but the HARTING PushPull SFP XS connectors do not suffer from this problem. They can be easily and quickly connected to a transceiver pre-assembled on site without having to open the optical link. The optical contacts are protected, even in dirty operating environments, to guarantee a clean signal.

Another key feature of the PushPull SFP XS connector is its sophisticated locking mechanism. Despite the compact design, the connector is compatible with various transceiver lengths. It also gives clear tactile and acoustic feedback to the user to indicate a secure connection. As a result, it provides a safe and trouble-free transmission solution for fibre-optic communication in harsh environments.

The HARTING PushPull SFP XS is ideally suited to use in industrial fibre-optic systems involving data transmission rates of more than 10 Gbit/s or distances of well over 100 metres. Typical applications include telecommunications or camera-based surveillance over large areas in the process industry.

A medal for mobile medicine?
Medical services the world over are coming under great pressure to deliver high-quality healthcare and, at the same time control costs. Alongside this, patients are becoming far more involved in their wellbeing as well as wanting a high standard of healthcare with even greater convenience than before. As people are more mobile these days, mobile healthcare (mHealth) avoids the need to visit the doctor’s office and allows patients to provide health data to providers, as well as receive care, anywhere on the planet.
