Fibre-optic camera connector features fast cable termination

8 March 2006 Interconnection

Fischer Connectors' 1053 fibre-optic camera connector, designed specifically for HD camera users, won the 'Top Innovation Award for 2005' at the National Association of Broadcasters show in Las Vegas.

The 1053 connector was designed to address the challenging and time-intensive connector/cable termination process that has slowed broad acceptance of previous HDTV camera connector products.

Termination time for the 1053 is 15 to 30 minutes, less than half as long as the time needed to terminate other products, according to Fischer. The difficult procedure of precisely polishing fibre-optic elements as well as preparing and using special epoxies is unnecessary with the 1053. Only simple hand tools and a basic knowledge of connector assembly are required, it says.

The 1053 is fully SMPTE signal-compliant, employing two single-mode fibre contacts, two high-voltage contacts and two low-voltage signal contacts.
