The Amphenol optical J-connector housing is designed for optical connectivity to outdoor installed electronics. Using a ‘Direct Connect’ topology, the J-Connector accepts either SFP or SFP+ pluggable transceivers, effectively transforming the passive optical assembly into an active, electrical interface. This connection method allows quick and easy replacement of the optics and allows re-configuration for upgrades.
The field installable version can be installed over an existing outdoor simplex or duplex LC assembly for applications requiring on-site or local assembly manufacturing. The J-Connector optical bulkhead receptacle is designed to accept any MSA compliant SFP or SFP+ transceiver, providing both an IP67 grade water and dust ingress protection as well as grounding to the panel/cage for improved EMI shielding.
