Congested cabling environments in data centers can complicate network manageability, making it harder to track fiber polarity and meet IEEE link loss limits. As servers, routers and switches have increased in bandwidth and density, the patching field has followed suit, and higher patching density can lead to costly mistakes during moves, adds, or changes.
The Leviton LC Unibody Connector with Spectro-Link™ Technology is designed to make fiber installation and changes easier, cleaner, and higher performing. It features a low-profile design for easier accessibility while simplifying polarity changes and offering ultra-low-loss performance.
The LC Unibody Connector — available on Leviton fiber trunk cables, harnesses, and patch cords — features a compact, unitized housing with precision parallel alignment of the duplex LC latching bodies with beveled first contact leading edges. This makes it easier to guide the connector into position in dense or dimly lit environments on the first attempt. Its push-pull grip makes installation, removal, and MAC work easy in tight spaces and removes risk of disturbing surrounding connectors.
In high density areas, the connector’s low-profile height improves access and manageability, and its compact 2.2″ length minimizes congestion in horizontal patching. A bend control fiber boot serves as an omnidirectional shock absorber in the shortest length necessary to protect fiber from damage.
Spectro-Link Technology simplifies the steps required to reverse polarity on-site, greatly reducing the potential for fiber damage with no need for tools or fiber exposure. The patented design supports polarity reversal in seconds, without twisting or moving fibers. In addition, easy-to-see A-B/A-A polarity indicators show users when a connector has been modified from the factory polarity.
In addition, the LC Unibody Connector ensure the highest levels of performance and quality:
- Better Performing Channels — Premium ferrules improve insertion loss performance, offering 0.15 dB per multimode and 0.25 dB per single-mode LC connector. This improved link loss makes it easier to specify, design and maintain extended reach networks.
- Cleaner for Fast Installation – Dual sealing airtight dust caps offer greater protection by preserving pristine air around the endface from the production test environment. This feature leads to less cleaning and faster installation.
- Made in the USA Quality – The precision molded LC Unibody connectors are designed and manufactured by Leviton in the United States to meet our highest quality standards and eliminate lengthy supply chain logistics. This connector meets Buy America and TAA requirements, and Leviton is able to minimize lead times for critical network installations.
