Neutrik opticalCON® ADVANCED DUO NKO2

opticalCON® ADVANCED DUO is an LC-based fibre optic connection system offering a fully assembled rugged and lightweight mobile field cable.

With built-in, automatic dust shutters and a rugged housing, the fibres are always dust, dirt and water protected, to an IP65 standard in mated condition. The military approved cable is suited to harsh environments and provides excellent cable retention due to the aramid yarn and black PUR outer jacket. The cable comes on a deployable reel or coiled, making it ideal for the audio and broadcast industries.

Compatibility with conventional LC connectors at both the front and the rear of the chassis connectors offers users the choice of using either cost-effective, standard LC patch cables or ruggedised opticalCON cables.

  • Singlemode (PC, APC) or multimode
