L-com, an Infinite Electronics brand, has expanded its fiber cabling portfolio with more than 600 new OM3, OM4, and OM5 multimode fiber-optic cable assemblies. The assemblies come with a variety of fiber-optic connector options.
Some of the major cabling categories covered in the new product offering include:
- MPO to MPO cable assemblies for point-to-point connectivity.
- MPO conversion harnesses that allow users to convert from 8-fiber to 12- or 24-fiber trunks, or from 12-fiber to 24-fiber trunks, for use in 40G and 100G multimode fiber deployments.
- MPO fan-out cables with an MPO connector on one end of the assembly and LC, SC, or ST fiber connectors on the other end.
Options for all the new cable assemblies include OFNR or low-smoke zero-halogen (LSZH) jackets; connector pins or no pins; choice of OM3, OM4, and OM5 multimode fiber; and fiber counts of 8, 12, and 24 channels, says the company.
"Until now, OM5 cables were typically only available as custom order products with long lead times," commented Paul Hospodar, product line manager at L-com. "To address the growing demand for high-speed, optimized fiber interconnects to support today's data centers, we have greatly expanded our fiber cable offering with a wide variety of configuration options to address every application. In addition to OM3 and OM4 assemblies, we now offer OM5 cables off-the-shelf with same-day delivery."
The new OM3, OM4, and OM5 MPO fiber-optic cable assemblies are in-stock and available for immediate shipment.
