Neutrik opticalCON® LITE Tactical Patch Cable

Neutrik’s opticalCON® LITE is a semi-rugged fibre optical connection suitable for a wide range of applications. Its connectors offer a cost effective and lightweight solution in a robust housing. The unique, compact design of the tactical patch cable allows extreme bending without fibre breakage and absorbs high lateral forces. As a result, it is an ideal choice for both permanent and semi-permanent installations such as server rooms, patch fields, and indoor cabling.

As well as harsh environment applications, there is also a demand for quality fibre connections for semi-rugged applications, such as patching or permanent installations. These applications require a focus on costs and a sealing shutter is not required. The opticalCON LITE range couples high performance with a cost effective, compact, and light weight design. It is fully compatible with the standard opticalCON chassis connectors.

Tactical Patch Cable

Conventional patch cables are sensitive in terms of undercutting the minimum bending radius and lateral pressure. Neutrik’s tactical patch cables contain a unique fibre design including a protection layer which allows bending with minimal radius and increased lateral pressure. Therefore the tactical patch cables are the right choice for permanent or semi-permanent applications.

Q & A

Yes, all our cables are made to order, so we can supply in any length to meet your exact requirements. Please contact us and we will send you a formal quote.

Yes, we can repair/service opticalCON DUO and QUAD cables in house, both Advanced and LITE.  For opticalCON MTP we can arrange the repair or service though Neutrik.

We have some cables in stock that are available to loan or hire. Please call us on 01488 685800 and we can check we have the products you need.

Generally these cables are made to order, so the turnaround can vary from a couple of days upwards depending on the type and quantity and what else we have booked.  It is always best to call and check as we will do what we can to meet your requirements.

The opticalCON LITE assembly is not designed to be used as a deployable cable, but as a DUO and QUAD compatible patch cable.  We do not supply these on reels or recommend these are used in this way. If you are looking for a deployable cable, we would suggest the opticalCON Advanced DUO, QUAD or MTP series as a more suitable range.

Although the opticalCON DUO and QUAD connectors are LC based, they cannot be plugged directly into standard LC sockets.  You will need to transition from a chassis connector, the rear of which take LC’s, then patch to your equipment.
