WHY EXPANDED BEAM

NO MORE SIGNAL LOSS DUE TO DIRTY FIBRE OPTIC CONNECTORS

No more signal loss due to dirty fibre optic connectors. Thanks to the Expanded Beam connectors from Fibreco and Stratos, dirt is no longer a reason for signal loss. They are insensitive to contamination and allow the optical signal to pass through effortlessly.

The solution: Expanded Beam

It’s not always possible to clean the connector tips or keep them clean, such as with industrial, military, broadcast or other outdoor applications. With this kind of applications, we don’t want and can’t depend on a perfectly clean connector tip. Then we’d better choose for Expanded Beam connectors. These types of connectors increase the original size of the optical beam up to 2000 times, so dirt will not block the beam. The connector tips do not make physical contact with each other, so dirty connectors will not damage each other. The contamination doesn’t effect the transmission of the light signal and the simple rinsing and drying of the connector is sufficient for a reliable connection.

  • No blockage due to dirt

EASY CLEANING

No hassle with dirty fibre optic connectors

The big advantage and unique feature of Expanded Beam connectors is that contaminated connectors will immediately function back again after simply rinsing and drying the fibre optic tips in contrast to the usual Physical Contact fibre connectors. They have a particularly small contact surface, where signals are easily disturbed by a tiny dust particle or a hair. What about sand or beer residue from a festival site? Let MCAP demonstrate this to you and discover the difference yourselves.
