Infinium™ Field-Installable Fiber Connectors from Legrand: Reduced Installation Costs, Better Performance

Ortronics Infinium Fiber Connectors

How Solid Is Your Optical Interconnect?

In the data center, the most critical point in any optical interconnect is the physical contact interface between mated connector pairs. When polishing fiber connectors, a small lens is created at the tip of the connector and the shape of this lens critically impacts transmission of light.

During the optical-interconnect process, outdated practices can be ineffective, time-consuming, and highly variable. Inconsistent processes in the field add cost and make for less-than-ideal performance. To address this issue, Legrand created Infinium™ Field-Installable Fiber Connectors, a solution that streamlines the installation process.

Installation-Friendly, Field-Installable Fiber Connectors

Utilizing advanced laser-interferometry equipment to monitor the manufacturing process, Infinium™ pre-polished field-termination connectors exhibit highly controlled end-face geometry for reliable, low insertion loss, and minimal return-loss connections.

This solution also eliminates imprecise epoxy application, time-consuming curing, and inconsistent hand polishing from the installation process. The end result is reduced installation costs, higher-yield field terminations, and better performance. Contractors and installers deliver fast, easy assembly in the field. (In other words, you and your clients both save time and money.)

Additional benefits include:

  • Reduced scrap for extra savings
  • Immediate feedback on successful termination
  • Common fiber tools are readily available
  • Reliability and superior performance
  • Flexibility for many installation applications
  • Ready when needed, for reduced waste
