lockable jumpersPrevent accidental disconnection in the field- no one wants to troubleshoot that.

The EDGE™ Lockable Uniboot Jumper (sometimes referred to as a Uniboot Patch Cord) is the newest addition to the Corning EDGE™ Uniboot Jumper family. This state-of-the-art assembly showcases the value that comes with the LC Uniboot connector, but now, with no special skills or training required, can easily be locked in the field, eliminating partial connection risk and accidental disconnects.

Designed specifically for data center applications, the New EDGE™ Lockable Uniboot Jumper reduces the risk of accidentally bringing down the network and reduces the cost of trouble shooting the disconnected link.

What does your network look like? Here’s how the EDGE™ Lockable Uniboot Jumper can mitigate risk in your network.

  • Lock-out- Engagement eliminates partial connection. Integrated trigger lock-out feature ensures accidental disconnects do not occur. No need for extraction tools or protection plug for installation/extraction
  • LC System- Compatible with any existing network system environment (equip-panel, panel-panel, equip-equip) LC duplex connectivity.
  • Polarity Management- This uniboot design allows one cable to carry both fibers, reducing the jumper bulk when routing.
  • Polarity Management- Maintains reversed polarity capability without exposing internal components. In the field with no tooling requirements.
