Harsh Environment Assemblies with OCC

by Julie Clark on October 23, 2014

Fiber optic cable assemblies in harsh environment applicatons, such as the Oil and Gas market, include above-surface (or “top-side”) monitoring and controls for oil and gas rigs, both land and sea based, as well as Geo-seismic exploration equipment. In all cases, harsh environment assemblies need a strong and dependable fiber connection that can be deployed quickly and reliably. Multi-pin hermaphroditic connectors, along with flexible and durable deployable cables manufactured by OCC can be deployed in the most extreme environments where rig operators or exploration teams are working, and all fiber connections can be mated and re-mated with relative ease because of the connectors’ design.




The OCC EZ-MATE family of hermaphroditic-style fiber optic connectors provides the most comprehensive solution to fiber inter-connect in harsh, deployable or mobilized communications systems.

Did You Know?

The EZ-MATE family of fiber optic inter-connect provides end users with the same successful technology used in advanced military communication systems, only with simplified (EZ-MATE) mating interfaces. 

And User-Friendly, Too!

In addition to the EZ-MATE user-friendly interface, the connector system is designed to resist extreme harsh mechanical and environmental conditions, including high vibration, mechanical and thermal shock, and fluid immersion and will continue to operate under extreme tension loading (with use of OCC tactical cable). Integrators can select from four different families (channel counts), which allows end users maximum flexibility when selecting the correct channel count for the application. Each of the four families features a diverse set of receptacle configurations designed to solve almost any panel or enclosure application.

Why Use Hermaphroditic?

Easy as 1, 2, 3!

Hermaphroditic connectors are designed for quick deployment and gender-independent connectivity, allowing the end user to unreel fiber cable without regard for male or female ends. The hermaphroditic design enables the transmission path to maintain polarity even with multiple cable segments daisy-chained together to extend the distance of the deployable system.
