Robust and versatile fiber optic lensed interconnect

Compact Lensed-Ferrule Connector

Diamond introduces the new lensed Alberino XB connector series.  Due to a patented modular design, this connector is extremely space saving and fits into a variety of standard connector housings.  Diamond launches the XB2 as the first in a line of a revolutionary connector series.  The XB lensed connectors provide absolute robustness, paired with dirt-proof insertion loss and high-power resilience, which are ideal for harsh environments.

Compact Lensed Ferrule Technology

Unlike conventional ferrules, the Diamond lensed ferrule operates on the Expanded Beam principle. Setting new standards in terms of optical performance by using single-mode fibers, lensed ferrules are used for applications that were not suitable, until now, because of high optical requirements.
