Robust optical performance in extreme environments

Fischer FiberOptic interconnecting solutions offer the best quality and stability needed for an optical link, combined with easy mating and easy field cleaning. They will perform perfectly in harsh and extreme environments and have a high ingress protection of IP68 when mated, and IP67 in unmated conditions. This rugged push-pull connector for both indoor and outdoor applications comes pre-cabled for maximum performance and time saving.

The Fischer FiberOptic Series is available in two versions:

Fischer FiberOptic FO2 & FO4 – Robust Optical Performance
A rugged fiber optic connector with two (FO2) or four (FO4) fibers

The Fischer FiberOptic Series with two (FO2) or four (FO4) optical channels features some major revolutionary novelties. Fischer Connectors is able to offer a fiber solution that is extremely quick and easy to clean thanks to a removable mono-block mate adapter and to the possibility of rinsing the unmated connectors freely under water or in an ultrasound bath.

Fischer FiberOptic Hybrid FOH 2-2 – Robust Powered Optical Solution
A rugged hybrid connector with two fiber channels and two electrical contacts

The Fischer FiberOptic Series hybrid connector with two optical channels and two electrical contacts is perfectly suitable for demanding indoor and outdoor applications, where space saving is essential. The hybrid FOH 2-2 has the same key features and benefits as the Fischer FiberOptic Series FO2 and FO4.
