Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson and global leader in RF, microwave, and optical connectivity solutions for the delivery of voice, video, and data, announces the launch of its Mixed Fiber Optic Cable Assembly (MFOCA), and the associated HMA expanded beam fiber optic plug and bulkhead connectors, for use by the U. S. Marine Corps, as well as other customers with harsh environment fiber optic applications.

Emerson Network Power Connectivity Solutions has designed and developed a complete line of MFOCA assemblies and connectors, that are compliant with MIL-DTL-83526 /20 & /21 and DLA Drawings 10023, 10024 & 09001.  The plug and bulkhead connectors are available as mixed mode (2-channel SM & 2-channel MM) in Brown 383 Camouflage, 2-channel SM in Green 383 Camouflage and 2-channel MM in Black Camouflage, all with a non-reflective finish.  The connectors use a field-proven, rugged hermaphroditic construction, and the configured MFOCA assemblies use a qualified mixed-mode fiber optic cable and are available with and without reels.

These MFOCA products are designed and manufactured to meet the harsh environment requirements of a military tactical communications system.  Their design and low insertion loss performance provide an easily maintainable, highly reliable, robust, and secure fiber optic connectivity solution for the transmission of voice, video and data.

These approved MFOCA connectors and assemblies are now available to order with a factory lead time of six (6) weeks from receipt of order.
