Extensive range of fibre optic connectors, adapters and cables

Cliff Electronics now offers a wide range of optical connectors, cables and accessories for automation, instrumentation, industrial control and data acquisition, high-quality audio and broadcast systems, AV installations, home theatre, games consoles, data and IT connectivity, medical equipment instrumentation, and other high-bandwidth signal connections.

Optical connectivity is virtually unaffected by electrical noise when transmitting and receiving digital signals and is rapidly becoming a standard feature of HDTV, high-quality audio equipment including portable products and IT systems.

Cliff Electronics optical jacks are available as single or dual optical transmitter/receiver versions with right-angle PCB mounting and a self-tapping screw hole for panel mounting. All conform to the EIAJ/JEITA rectangular standard CP-1210 and also RC-5720 and JIS C5974-1993 F05 standards for digital audio interfaces including fibre-optic interconnections. Standard and low-profile versions are available, and three models replace a plug-in cover with a convenient hinged shutter to protect against contamination.

Electrical specification of Cliff's optical jacks is; supply voltage -0.5 to 7.0V maximum, input voltage -0.5 to +0.5V maximum, operating temperature -20 to +70degC and soldering temperature 260degC maximum.

Fibre Optic Connectors are also available in Cliff's Feedthrough connector series. SC Simplex, LC Duplex and TOSLINK EIAJ fibre-optic connection options are available in plastic or rugged metal shells. Designed to fit into the industry standard 24mm diameter XLR connector panel cutout, this simplifies panel design and manufacture and improves end product aesthetics. Fibre-optic FeedThrough connectors may also be supplied pre-assembled into 19" rack panels to simplify and speed up system assembly.

To accompany their optical connector range Cliff also manufactures moulded optical lead assemblies (TOSLINK cables) for use with optical jacks. The TOSLINK (Toshiba Link) Optical Audio Data Cables conform to a standard, optical fibre, fibre, digital, audio interface and are available in 1.5 and 2.5 metre lengths. Lead terminals conform to the EIAJ/JEITA rectangular standard CP-1201 and also RC-5720 and JIS C5974-1993 F05 standards for digital audio interfaces including fibre-optical interconnections.

Completing the Cliff Fibre-Optic product range is a Toslink/Optical adaptor which converts a Toslink Optical Cable / Connection to a 3.5mm (Mini Toslink) Jack. This enables standard Optical Cables to be plugged into laptops, PC soundcards, minidiscs and other portable audio equipment.

John Hall, Managing Director of Cliff Electronics, comments: "Optical interconnections are virtually unaffected by noise when transmitting and receiving signals and have been adopted as standard in portable audio equipment. Their use is also growing in popularity in datacentres and instrumentation systems. Our wide range of feedthrough connector and jack options allow us to provide best-fit solutions for OEMs and Systems Integrators."

Cliff's Feedthrough connectors now provide Analogue, Digital and Optical Feed-Through connectivity in formats including VGA, Mini DisplayPort, Firewire, GJ45, HDMI A-A and 50 ohm BNC versions, USB2 A-to-B and B-to-A "gender chang" sockets high speed USB Type - C, USB3 to USB3 in all gender changing configurations - A-A, A-B and B-A. Also available are all popular data and Ethernet connectors including USB 2.0 and 3.0, LC and SC fibre (Duplex & Simplex), UTP and FTP RJ45s in both Cat6 and Cat5e (shielded and unshielded), RCA Phono and HDMI and blanking plates.
