Compact Lensed Connectors

- robust and reliable

The Diacom XB connector series includes a range of noncontact lensed connectors.  The Diamond patented Alberino XB is based on the Expanded Beam principle and fits into a variety of connector housings due to its compact design.

Compact lensed ferrule technology

Unlike conventional ferrules, the Diamond lensed ferrule operates on the Expanded Beam principle.  Setting new standards in terms of optical performance by using single-mode fibers, lensed ferrules are used for applications that were not suitable, until now, because of high optical requirements.

Diamond offers the following solutions:

  • Multichannel: 1 - 12 channels available

  • Hybrid optical and electrical

  • Compatible with standard connector housings

Features of the Diamond XB series:

  • Low Insertion Loss

  • Noncontact connection

  • Insensitive to dirt

  • High power reliability

  • Low risk of damage

  • High data rate capacity

  • Single mode fibers 9µm

  • Field repairable

  • Easy cleaning
