Senko Advanced Components has introduced its new LC-HD high density LC connector. The Senko LC-HD’s lever design utilizes a flexible “pull-tab” allowing for the connector to be disengaged easily from densely loaded panels without the need for special tools.

The overall height of standard LC connectors requires a small vertical space above and below the LC adaptors. The low profile Senko LC-HD, by virtue of its pull tab, allows LC adaptors to be stacked while taking up absolutely no vertical space. According to the company, because the Senko LC-HD connector can be removed using a simple pull tab, it eliminates the need for finger access to the LC connectors' latch mechanism; therefore, LC adaptors can now be mounted much closer together.
