Herisau, 30 October 2018. HUBER+SUHNER, a leading manufacturer of components and systems for optical and electrical connectivity, announced today that it has added FullAXS Mini assemblies under license from TE Connectivity to its outdoor connectivity offering for wireless communication and industrial applications.
As electrical equipment for outdoor use continues to get smaller in size, the FullAXS Mini connector sealing system is 23 percent smaller than the well-known FullAXS system, allowing the user to design-in fiber, signal and power connectivity where needed. HUBER+SUHNER offers FullAXS Mini assemblies with LC Duplex, RJ-45 and power connectors inside.
The FullAXS Mini connector sealing system can deliver a watertight seal up to IP65 and IP67 levels, uses UV material to meet F1 rating UL 94-V0 and could withstand all applicable lightning strike requirements, making the new addition ideal for many harsh outdoor environments, including wireless and microwave equipment, industrial, robotic, and aerospace and defense applications.
The FullAXS Mini connector sealing system also enables one-handed, blind installs from different angles. With 3-sense (visual, audio and tangible) locking feedback, floating connections and a twist angle of only 30 degrees, these products can be installed by field engineers of all levels of experience in virtually any location.
“The licensed FullAXS Mini assemblies are complementary with our experience and expertise in rugged connectivity solutions”, said Carsten Dieckmann, Product Manager in the Fiber Optic Mobile Communication and Industry division of HUBER+SUHNER. “We can now offer our customers a complete portfolio for connectivity needs in wireless communication and industrial applications.”
“Outdoor wireless and industrial equipment is getting smaller while needing to deliver more functionality, and connectors on that equipment must be smaller and more versatile,” added Stefan Borgas, Product Manager at TE’s Data and Devices business unit. “The FullAXS Mini connector sealing system delivers the small size, ease of installation, and ruggedness necessary to address today’s wireless and industrial equipment designs.”
