Legrand re-names fiber product line, launches field-installable connector

Legrand announced the re-naming of its complete fiber solutions line to "Infinium."

Legrand announced the re-naming of its complete fiber-optic networking infrastructure line to "Infinium," offering a range of products and systems, including high density fiber modules, field-installable connectors, cassettes and adapters, as well as patch cords, harnesses, fiber enclosures and trunk cables.

The company says the full product line provides the exceptionally high performance levels that its previous Ortronics platform was known for, as well as unsurpassed integration with the rest of the company's physical infrastructure offering, such as racks, cabinets and cable management.

Concurrent to the re-naming, Legrand also announced its newest product: the Infinium field-installable connector. The connector uses index-matching gel and a mechanical splice in the connector housing to make a highly reliable and stable connector. The company says the Infinium field-installable connector requires no special tools for installation and terminates in less than two minutes.

According to Legrand, other key features of the Infinium field-installable connector include: no epoxy, polishing or fusion splicing required; reusable termination capability (up to 3 times); and a VFL window for proper installation. The connector is available in LC or SC versions with either laser-optimized 50 micron or singlemode fiber.
