Radiall’s new R2CT connection kit provides a waterproof, sealed connection for fiber-to-the-antenna (FTTA), remote radio head equipment, and similar outdoor applications where a protected interface is needed. The field-installable kit provides low-cost sealing at the transceiver-to-cable interface and ensures robust mechanical and environmental performance.

The kit is designed for optical systems using SFP transceivers and duplex LC-terminated fiber-optic cable. The kit can be reused, allowing cables and transceivers to be changed in the field, including front-panel swapping of transceivers. The kits can also be assembled over existing cables. Sealing levels are IP65, with IP67 optionally available, with a durability of 100 mating cycles minimum and a temperature range from -40° to +85°C. The mated connection has a retention force of 200 N.

The kit uses a receptacle attached to the equipment panel and a plug assembly over the cable. The plug and receptacle use a double bayonet locking system to allow a toolless, hand-tightened connection. The plug assembly includes a protection cap that can be used for pulling cable.
