Saugerties, N.Y. – August 1, 2018 Camplex, a leading US manufacturer of fiber optic cables and accessories, offers a solution to adapt SMPTE 311m hybrid fiber cables to conventional fiber cables with rugged in-line adapters for camera or CCU setups. Camplex HYDAPS are passive SMPTE fiber breakout boxes that allow for simple integration using standard duplex fiber cables.
Adapting SMPTE hybrid cables to single mode ST, LC or opticalCON DUO fiber cables offsets the cost of additional cables and, when power conductors are not needed, can increase the distance for reliable camera to CCU connections. Designed for harsh environments, such as sports broadcasting and stadiums, the HYDAP breakout adapters feature a sturdy extruded aluminum square enclosure to prevent rolling, and recessed fiber connectors with dust covers to avoid damage to the unit and the connection.
For setups requiring copper conductor continuity, models are available with power taps with 5, 6 or 8-PIN amp CPC connectors and male or female XLR which maintain the copper conductors of the SMPTE hybrid connector.
