NEUTRIK reveals new FIBERFOX products at Engineering Design Show in the UK


Ryde, Isle of Wight, 14 October 2022. The Neutrik Group exhibited at this year’s Engineering Design Show at the Coventry Building Society Arena, in the UK, where it showed two new additions to its FIBERFOX connector series.





During the two day event – which took place on 12 and 13 October and is dedicated to engineering, electronics and embedded design – NEUTRIK unveiled the FIBERFOX foxBRID and FIBERFOX Rotary Joint.


The FIBERFOX foxBRID is an expanded beam multimode hermaphroditic connector module, suited to a vast array of industrial applications, including in automation, robotics and rail transportation. The innovative design – available in 2-and 4-channel variants – ensures its ability for deployment in the toughest environments where constant performance and total reliability are critical. The module is designed according to the MIL-DTL-83526 standard and fits to other FIBERFOX solutions.


Benefiting from the expanded beam technology and the precision optical alignment the system creates high immunity against dust, mud, liquids and other contaminations. The FIBERFOX foxBRID module converts a standardized LC Patch cable into an expanded beam solution. It acts as a “feed-through” and fits into industrial standard shells; e.g. Han-Modular® Harting​ and RockStar® ModuPlug Weidmüller​.





The FIBERFOX Rotary Joint is an expanded beam multimode solution with fits to standard optical ST connections. Offering IP56 protection, with two hermetically dust-tight chambers sealed by shaft seals, it is suitable for a wide range of engineering applications where rotation is a challenge, such as in robotics, renewable energy (e.g. wind turbines) and government (e.g. radar). The innovative design ensures maximal flexibility and high data rates in rotating systems.


Benefiting from the expanded beam technology and the precision optical alignment, the Rotary Joint system allows for high rotation speed and an extremely long service life of 500 million revolutions.


FIBERFOX offers considerable technical and market advantage across a vast array of applications including AV networking, lighting, touring sound and event production, video, broadcast, and in wider industrial and strategic sectors including government communications, security, transportation and energy.
