Ortronics/Legrand Introduces OptiMo® SpaceSaver
New London, CT, January 11, 2008 - Ortronics/Legrand, a global leader in high performance copper, fiber and wireless structured cabling solutions, will introduce the OptiMo SpaceSaver fiber optic patch cords at the BICSI Winter Conference, January 13 - 16 at the Gaylord Palms Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
Ortronics SpaceSaver fiber optic patch cords are ideal for high density fiber optic LC duplex patching applications where conservation of cable routing space is required. They are designed to fit precisely, without interference, between high density LC adapter ports used in closely packed duplex and quad LC cassettes or shuttered adapter panels.
Available in high performance or premium performance, the SpaceSaver patch cords utilize a special compact 2.4-mm diameter duplex cable with integral Kevlar strength members to save valuable routing space and reduce the weight in overhead cable trays. The LC duplex connectors at each end of the SpaceSaver patch cords are designed as a single molded duplex construction and incorporate a unique single strain relief boot and single thumb-latch disconnect operation to simplify insertion and removal.
The SpaceSaver cords are available in 50-micron LOMF, 62.5-micron and single-mode fiber types and feature A-A or A-B polarity options for flexible configurations. In addition, the risk of inadvertent polarity problems is significantly reduced because the connectors do not require polarity clips. Precision zirconia ceramic ferrules ensure repeatable high performance operation. When coupled with Ortronics new Momentum 3 optical cassettes, an integrated data center solution emerges, solving the problems of increased port density and optical performance.
