ArmourLux300 Mini Tactical Deployable Fibre with IP68 LC-MAX Lite Connectors

The ArmourLux300 Mini Tactical Deployable Fibre with LC-MAX Lite connectors is the most durable, portable fibre optic LC solution available, making it suitable for harsh environment applications ranging from military tactical communications to broadcasting and events. This series has been ruggedised by the inclusion of a metal bodied duplex LC connector housed within a lightweight, ABS polymer shell that is 100% compatible with standard LC sockets. That means you can connect the fibre directly into your equipment and you’re ready to go. Developed exclusively for use with tactical deployable fibre optic, it provides exceptional cable retention, at least 6x greater than that of a standard LC connector.

The ABS polymer cap and casing protect against accidental damage and when not in use, the cap can be secured to protect the fibre connectors against dust and water. It has been tested to IP68 standard – you can read more about IP ratings here. The streamline design also ensures easy to retrieval without snagging.

The ArmourLux300 Mini range uses a Miltac cable that tightly packs bend insensitive fibres in aramid yarn, ensuring minimal signal loss even if accidentally kinked. With an outer diameter of just 3.4mm, it is thinner and lighter weight compared to its ArmourLux500 counterpart. The thinner design saves space, making it easier to deploy, transport and store.

All ArmourLux assemblies are made in the UK. We’re also an ISO9001 accredited company, where quality and customer service are our highest priorities. With over 25 years’ experience as a trusted provider of fibre optic cables, you can be reassured we understand the requirements of mobile fibre optic communications.

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.

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