XiOptic’s LCe is a metallic adapter that allows any ARINC 801 terminus to mirror the physical interfaces and optical performance of the popular LC optical connection system. The adapter is manufactured using a hard anodized aluminum body with a heat treated stainless steel latch system. When integrated with the NXTCoreTM ARINC 801 optical terminus the only limit to high or low temperature operation is your selected cable materials or adhesives. LCe has literally flown into space and been pushed into center of the earth without failure.
LCe when used with the NXTCoreTM ARINC 801 terminus creates a rich suite of allowable configurations. All of these retain all of the features originally designed into the LC connector by Lucent Technologies are extended. The design ensures the best possible optical performance for random mated channels by including hex registry tuning capability, mitigating fiber/ferrule concentricity and tolerances.
When assembled, the adapter and terminus operate with any Small Form Factor LC compliant device. The LCe adapter is of particular use in harsh environments,, LCe may be optionally configured with a silicone rubber sealing sealing boot and front compression seal prevent moisture and contamination from entering the optical core coupling zone. These sealed can prevent transceiver window contamination as they will seal the optical like no other LC connector.
When remote operation is critical and it is critical to have the most reliable LC interconnect…. LCe is the solution to consider. When customers join LCe with an ARINC 801 compliant terminus and properly terminate, the combination meets all of the performance requirements of Telcordia Core-GR-326 and FOCIS-10.
