September 22, 2008--Draka Communications has developed advanced connectorized cables through the combination of the company's BendBright-XS bend-insensitive fiber cable and Megladon's Hardened Lens Connector (HLC) ScratchGuard connector technology.

Available immediately in patch cord products, the solution is designed as a high performance, scratch-resistant, bend-insensitive fiber-optic cable assembly. Riser, plenum, and low-smoke zero halogen (LSZH) cables are available with ultra or angle polish hardened lens connectors.

Introduced in 2006 as Draka's second generation of bend-insensitive fiber, BendBright-XS is designed for customers desiring a solid-glass G.657 A&B compliant fiber. Megladon's HLC process was developed to meet the growing need for a scratch-resistant, highly durable fiber-optic mating surface. Damage to the connector due to handling and repeated use has been a concern and point of failure for network operators, but Megladon claims its HLC ScratchGuard technology has virtually eliminated this problem.

"Combining a fiber cable that can tolerate 7.5 mm of bend radius with a nearly scratch resistant connector, the reliability and durability of connectorized cables has just taken a giant step forward," states Paul Baird, business development manager with Draka.
