Molex Inc.'s Quick Mate Duplex (QMD) LC Optical Connector is a ruggedized connector solution
that includes a one-step, push-pull configuration that can be mated directly to
Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP) transceivers. Featuring a durable
latching system, the QMD provides an automated solution for positive mating of
the LC connector to the SFP transceiver in applications, including Remote Radio
Heads or Closed Circuit TV. The solution is IP67 environmentally sealed,
ensuring moisture and dust protection in harsh environments. The QMD eliminates
the need for multiple steps to mate the internal LC duplex connector,
simplifying installation and maintenance.
Features for field installation:
design reduces potential damage to the optical connector due to impact with a
Z-axis travel of the internal LC connector for proper mating to the SFP optical
transceiver over a wide mounting tolerance.
and lightweight thermoplastic housing withstands extreme temperatures up to
design accommodates both multimode and single-mode fiber.
An in-depth survey of 700 current and future users of 3D printing holds few surprises, but results emphasize some major trends already in progress. Two standouts are the big growth in end-use parts and metal additive manufacturing (AM) most respondents expect.
