Stratos Optical Technologies’ HMC fiber-optic connector is available in 2-and 4-channel configurations, providing the reliability expanded-beam (EB) technology in a more compact format for use on smaller, portable equipment as well as with high-density connector panels. The HMC is small enough for use with state-of-the-art HD broadcast and cinema cameras and disk recorders, and in other situations where space is limited. The harsh-environment, deployable fiber connector combines Stratos’ EB technology with hermetic sealing in order to withstand moisture and particulate contamination. This technology also features hermaphroditic connecting, eliminating the fuss about male and female ends.

With an impeccable pedigree of 20 years of military use, Stratos EB technology offers the most reliable optical connection technology for repetitious connect/disconnect activity, and it provides a solid and practical connector solution for audio, video, and general data applications.

The HMC offers many of the same benefits as the industry-standard HMA connectors—rugged design, hermaphroditic connection, resistance to contamination, and a robust optical connection. Additionally, HMC bulkheads can be installed in standard 1RU panels configured for industry-standard D mounts.

The HMC’s full rubber body provides durability against every-day wear and tear. As fiber penetration continues in live-venue productions and installed-transport networks, Stratos’ expanded-beam fiber-optic connectors are proving a popular solution for their dependable performance and ease of use.
