OPTOKON

HMA-M Mini connector

The OPTOKON HMA-M connector series, a mini size „Expanded Beam“ connector is designed for connection of the nodes of harsh environmental network by the help of cables with optical fibers. The used expanded beam technology preservers all advantages of signals transmission through the optical lines in field harsh environmental conditions. Additionally to ruggedized optical networks the HMA-M is suited for a vast array of applications, like heavy industry connections, petrochemical application, broadcasting temporary optical lines. The innovative designs ensure its ability for deployment in the toughest environments where high performance and total reliability are critical. Benefiting from expanded beam technology the precision optical alignment system creates immunity from water, mud, dust oil and other contaminants. The HMA-M Hermaphroditic coupling eliminates the need for adaptors and male and female mating halves. Hermaphroditic housings allow for rapid deployment, creating low loss Singlemode and Multimode daisy chained links in a variety of planforms ranging from simplex fiber to a four fibers. The OPTOKON HMA-M is ideally suited for environmental extremities where low maintenance and quick repairability is necessary.

HMA-J Series connector

The OPTOKON HMA-J connector series, a medium size „Expanded Beam“ connector is designed for connection of the nodes of harsh environmental network by the help of cables with optical fibers.

Hermaphroditic housings allow for rapid deployment, creating low loss Single mode and Multimode daisy chained links in a variety of planforms ranging from simplex fiber to a four fibers. The OPTOKON HMA-S is ideally suited for environmental extremities where low maintenance and quick repairability is necessary.

OPTOKON HMA patchcord

The OPTOKON HMA optical modules are designed for connection of the nodes of harsh environmental network by the help of cables with optical fibers. The used „Expanded beam technology“ preserves all advantages of signals transmission through the optical lines in field harsh environmental conditions. Benefiting from expanded beam technology, with a long and proven industry track record, the precision optical alignment system creates immunity from water, mud, dust, oil and other contaminants. The HMA Hermaphroditic coupling eliminates the need for adaptors and male and female mating halves. Hermaphroditic housings allow for rapid deployment, creating low loss Single mode, Multimode and Hybrid daisy chained links in a variety of planforms ranging from simplex fiber to a copper Hybrid. The OPTOKON HMA is ideally suited for environmental extremities where low maintenance and quick repairabilty is necessary, the connectors are uniquely field installable and rapidly field repairable.
There are two different types of OPTOKON HMA connection modules:

  1. LD type cable with OPTOKON HMA plugs at both sides
  2. Hybrid connection module OPTOKON HMA to standard fiber optic connectors (FC, SC, ST, LC, …)

D38999 Series III connector

The OPTOKON D38999 Series III derived Expanded Beam fiber optic connectors have been designed for use in the most demanding civil and military electronic equipment interface applications. The connector features the generic MIL-DTL-38999 Series III tri-start thread and one-turn self locking anti-vibration coupling mechanism making it ideal for use in vehicle, aircraft and naval environments. Plug and receptacle connectors are available with straight or 90º back-shell options and a choice of shell materials including Aluminum alloy (Zinc Cobalt, Olive drab), Aluminum alloy (electroless Nickel plated), Nickel Aluminum Bronze (shot blast, non-reflective) and Stainless Steel (passivated). Receptacle connectors are available with jam-nut or square-flange mounting and strain relief for zip-cords or tactical cable.

The connectors are terminated using an epoxy-polish ferrule termination process with standard fiber optic termination tools and equipment. The terminated ferrules are simply inserted into the Expanded Beam housing and fixed in place via a spring and cover-plate.  Ferrule alignment to the lenses is achieved automatically by the unique optical arrangement.

The OPTOKON D38999 Series III Expanded Beam connectors offer high performance, flexibility and cost effectiveness.
