NEUTRIK further extends fiber portfolio with FIBERFOX EBC25 and FIBERFOX X-TREME EBC25


NEUTRIK widens its HMA expanded beam connectivity solutions with a new ruggedized jam-nut chassis design and extreme environment ‘hardened’ cable assemblies.






The Neutrik Group, Schaan, Liechtenstein; 7 November 2023. NEUTRIK further expands its fiber optic connectivity portfolio with the introduction of two new variants of its HMA expanded beam multimode connector system.

Available in 2- and 4-channel configurations, FIBERFOX EBC25 is a ruggedized development of its FIBERFOX HMA expanded beam multimode fiber-optic connector system. FIBERFOX EBC25 chassis is a jam-nut design, intended to meet a vast array of network, audio, video, lighting and broadcast applications, in all manner of industrial, defence and civil engineering environments, wherever consistent levels of performance and reliability are mission critical.

The FIBERFOX EBC25 series has an improved temperature resistance of -46°C to 71°C, and the connector’s dimensions are fully compliant with the specifications of the MIL-DTL-83526 standard, ensuring its compatibility with other connectors using that standard. No special cleaning or measuring tools are required, enabling easy maintenance in the field, with the FIBERFOX EBC25 system IP68 rated in both mated and unmated states. Its wear-free connectors are capable of up to 10,000 mating cycles without any maintenance. Cables are directly expandable with no couplers required; FIBERFOX’s easy to use bulkhead mounted connectors uniquely convert a standardized LC patch cable into an expanded beam solution.

FIBERFOX X-TREME EBC25 is an especially ‘hardened’ cable assembly variant that additionally offers a cut-proof, rodent resistant double jacket glasses yarn cable construction. Exceptional cable retention is achieved by the use of aramid yarn, and the entire cable design is encased by a black PUR outer jacket; making the cable assembly ideal for use in the harshest outdoor applications, able to withstand far greater environmental impact.

FIBERFOX X-TREME EBC25 cable connectors come pre-assembled, with the finished cable available in standardized lengths, packed either on GT450, HT582 or SK4812 cable reels or air spool.

FIBERFOX EBC25 and FIBERFOX X-TREME EBC25 join NEUTRIK’s rapidly expanding fiber optical connectivity solutions portfolio, comprising the FIBERFOX HMA expanded beam, opticalCON LITE, opticalCON ADVANCED, opticalCON HYBRID MED and opticalCON DRAGONFLY series.
