OptoLink Fiber Optic Connector

MacArtney OptoLink connectors combine robustness and reliability with flexibility and ease of use. They provide low noise fibre optic connections for one to four optical fibre passes in a wide range of configurations for connector and penetrator types.

Thanks to spherical lens technology, MacArtney OptoLink connectors are easy to clean and reassemble in the field. OptoLink connectors are robust and reliable and are rated for depths of up to 8,000 metres. Their flexible cables also make the connectors easy to work with.

MacArtney OptoLink connectors are available in flange (FCR), bulkhead (BCR) and cable mount (CCP, CCR) configurations from stock in both Nickel Aluminium Bronze C63000, stainless steel AISI 316 and Titinium Grade 2 housings.
