Why ArmourLux500 with LC-Max connectors?

A Strong, Durable, Reliable Connection

The LC-MAX IP68 connector is an enhancement of the industry standard LC connector. Its cable retention is at least 6x greater than that of a standard LC connector.

LC-MAX ArmourLux Deployable Fibre

It has been ruggedised by the inclusion of a metal body, latch and IP68 rated cover, offering protection when not in use or being retrieved. The streamline design also ensures you have a snag free retrieval.

100% compatible with standard LC Sockets

The LC-MAX is fully compatible with standard LC sockets and equipment; there’s no need for intermediary connection parts. That means you can connect the fibre directly into your equipment and you’re ready to go.

IP68 rated for peace of mind

The metal cap keeps out water and dust when not in use, to protect the fibre connectors and has been tested to IP68 standard.  You can read more about IP ratings here.

Greater reliability in harsh environments

The ArmourLux500 range uses a tough, durable Miltac cable that tightly packs bend insensitive fibres in aramid yarn, ensuring minimal signal loss even if accidentally kinked.

Q & A

Yes it can. It is based on a standard LC Connector, so it is 100% compatible with standard LC sockets on panels, SFP’s etc.

Unfortunately, a standard LC is not IP rated, so it is not IP rated when connected.  When the cap is affixed, the shell provides IP68 protection for the LC when not in use.

The LC-MAX is an IP68 rated duplex connector, supporting two fibres. We can provide up to 12 of these on each end of a 24-fibre cable.

Yes we can mount LC sockets on the centre plate, please contact us for a quotation

Yes, depending on the length, we can either coil your assembly or put it on a wooden drum, so that you can decant.
