Winchester Fiber Optic Connectors

With a vast array of polishing fixtures, interferometer adapters, test equipment adapters, and over 100 years combined fiber optic termination expertise, Winchester can terminate and test any cable or connector you have. Even if you have a custom ferrule with no commercial polishing fixture available, we will develop and build a custom polishing fixture to solve your application need. In-stock polishing fixtures are available for quick turnaround manufacturing on commercial connectors such as LC, FC, SC, ST, MU, MTP, MT-RJ, and military ferrules such as ITT ruby ferrule, ITT PHD, 29504/14 and /15, and specialty connectors such as FDDI, ESCON, Biconic, SMA, D4, and SMPTE304.

 

EL Series® Expanded Beam Contact
Winchester’s KINGS® brand EL Series™ Expanded Beam Contacts use double alignment and protected lens technology to create a new connector system providing significant advantages over traditional expanded beam connectors. The double alignment first expands the optical area 1000’s of times and secondly aligns the optical beam to the mechanical axis of the contact. This unique system provides excellent return loss (better than 60dB) making the contact perfect for analog fiber applications like HD FLIR imaging, RF-over-fiber used in cell tower extensions, and passive split analog cable transmission systems. The mechanical and optical components are potted to provide mechanical protection for easy insertion and thousands of cycles of trouble-free service.

Benefits/Features

- Contacts use double alignment and protected lens technology
- Contacts easily inserted and removed from rear of connector
- Black epoxy potting compound provides mechanical protection for easy insertion and thousands of cycles
- Excellent Return Loss – Better than 60dB
