The small size of LC connectors makes them an ideal choice for use with small form-factor transceivers like the
ones used with Blackmagic-Design ATEM Camera and Studio Converters. While TFS LC cables are relatively less
expensive than those terminated with Neutrik opticalCON connectors, the LC cables are prone to damage
and contamination which may result in unreliable performance if not handled properly.
RECOMMENDATION: TFS relatively low cost LC cables are an excellent choice for fixed installations, and can be used
for repeat field deployment when handled properly. When in doubt about your ability to ensure correct handling,
TFS cables terminated with Neutrik opticalCON connectors are recommended. TFS’s Neutrik Cable Adapter
enables ATEM Camera and Studio Converters to be used with tactical fiber cables terminated with Neutrik opticalCON
Multi-Cam System with Neutrik opticalCon
Tactical Fiber Systems has engineered a patent pending Neutrik opticalCON cable adapter kit for quick installation on the ATEM Camera Converter along with complimentary opticalCON DUO patch panels for the ATEM Studio Converter. TFS Tactical Fiber cables terminated with Neutrik opticonCON connectors offer a ruggedized solution for the deployment and interfacing of optical fiber in commercial and professional AV applications. The opticalCON connector features a ruggedized body design and a unique shutter mechanism to protect against contamination and damage while providing exceptional low return-loss, low attenuation and consistent plug-to-socket contact for reliable signal transmission.
Multi-Cam System with LC Connectors
TFS cables terminated with duplex LC connectors include two levels of protection against contamination and breakage and can withstand repeated field deployment only if handled properly. Plastic dust caps are attached to each LC fiber connector for protection against contamination.
Secondly, we provide a flexible plastic cap for the
duplex LC connector assembly to protect it against both contamination and physical damage.
Set-up and take-down crews must ensure that all of the protection caps are in place while running cables or reeling them in.
