Fibre optic connectors & penetrators
Teledyne Impulse-PDM Ltd
PDM Neptec Ltd has developed a range of fibre optic connectors called the Omega range. The fibre optic connectors have been designed with features that combine; electro-optic flexibility, performance, and reliability.
PDM Neptec Ltd had a design brief for increased speed and bandwidth and reduced optical power. The solution was the low loss Omega fiber optic range of underwater connector. These underwater fibre optic connectors offer an optimal solution using well-proven self-aligning ceramic fibre optic components.
The connectors can be produced with combinations of fibre and electrical contacts. The components can accommodate singlemode and multimode fibre ranging from 9/125 to 62.5/125 micron. The standard electrical contacts are 16AWG rated at 600VDC and 12A. The Omega range of fibre optic connector is offerred in 8 shell sizes and can be configured from 1 to 20 contacts.
The standard Omega body material is 316 stainless steel and the connectors are rated for operation up to 5000m mated and 4000m bulkhead open face.

PDM Neptec Ltd also offer fibre optic penetrators as a reliable low loss method of linking fibre optic assemblies due to a minimum number of components and optical interfaces.
The PDM fibre optic penetrator can also offer the advantage of full waterblocking so even if the in-water section of the cable is damaged, the water will not penetrate the connected equipment.
PDM Neptec Ltd can also supply hybrid penetrators with fiber optic & electrical cores in one unit.
