New harsh environment fiber optic connectors from HUBER+SUHNER deliver best in class performance, packing density and environmental protection

The new Q-ODC®-12 remote radio interface family from HUBER+SUHNER sets a new benchmark for outdoor environments

Global connectivity solutions company HUBER+SUHNER has set a new benchmark for outdoor fiber optic connectivity with the launch of its new Q-ODC®-12 interface for industrial and FTTA applications. Designed to be the smallest and most robust products in their class, the new connectors also have the highest fiber density - based on the proven QN push-pull mating system. Q-ODC®-12 connectors are similar in size to the two-fiber Q-ODC® but can connect up to 12 fibers in a single mating step.

MicroTCA connectors for extreme environments

The HARTING MicroTCA Backplane connector passes the ruggedized environmental test according to the draft specification MTCA.3. The PICMG, a leading standards organization for the communications, industrial and embedded computer industries, recently announced the successful completion of the “MicroTCA Conduction Cooled” testing.

The MTCA.3 subsidiary specification of MicroTCA targets to defense and aerospace applications with extreme requirements for vibration, shock and temperature range based on MIL-STD-801. The goal was to show that the card edge connector system meets the stringent environmental requirements for the target markets. The test was performed by the independent testing and research company Contech Research.

Connector for grounding systems

Explosion proof extension cord




The Magnalight EPEXC-100-250V Explosion Proof extension cord allows operators to safely extend the range of their explosion proof light or equipment cords beyond the boundaries of the hazardous work area.

These units are constructed of 100 feet of 12/3 SOOW explosion proof cord rated at 250 volts. The cord is chemical and abrasion resistant and comes with an explosion proof receptacle installed on one end and an explosion proof plug installed on the other end.

We also include an extra matching plug for operators to attach to their equipment which allows them to avoid any issues with plug and receptacle equipment compatibility with this cord. The plugs on these units are a two pole three wire configuration. To ensure the highest safety, operators should make connections outside of the hazardous area.  Manufacturing, Industrial, Warehouse, Lighting, Explosion Proof Light Fixtures, Grinders, Wet areas or Locations Where Combustible Dust is Present.
