data connector / USB / rectangular / push-pull
HUBER+SUHNER have come up with a product to revolutionize the industry standard LC connector. Due to the locking key design, handling is compromised in applications where LC adapters are side by side, despite being the connector of choice for many FTTH operators. SC shape adapters where access to the key of the connector is blocked by adjacent connectors and adapters are also a problem. Push-pull connectors like SC work much better because the mechanism they rely on is accessible on all four sides of the connector shroud.
The features of this new product include push-pull mechanism, two connections in one SC shaped adapter, short rigid length of pigtail connector, switchable duplex connectors and one piece design for easy termination. The push pull mechanism works best for highest packing density and ease of handling and makes for a better design.
