July 16, 2007 -- CommScope has introduced its Uniprise Keyed Fiber LC connectors and adapters, which are designed to increase mechanical security within premises distribution networks and local area networks (LANs). The products feature special molded features on the plug and color-coded keys in the adapter, to reduce the chance of unauthorized connections.

According to the company, the system utilizes a color-coded key system that minimizes transmission problems while reducing installation time for field-mountable connectors. In order for a connection to be possible, the plug adapter colors must match the connector color. If the colors do not match, the keying features will prevent the connectors from mounting into the adapters, preventing the signal from passing between the connectors. In addition, the Keyed LC plugs will not match with standard LC adapters, only the equivalent color couplers.

The product's condensed form factor - half the size of standard connections - easily disengages in compact spaces. Key features include RJ-style housing, duplex LC adapter mounts in the same footprint as a simplex SC adapter, a single-fiber ferrule, ceramic sleeves and ten keys in distinct colors.

The connectors and adapters follow the standard Uniprise installation procedures, and all exceed industry standards, according to CommScope.
