Meet Infinium: Legrand renames family of fiber solutions
By Anthony Capkun
July 3, 2014 – Legrand has renamed its complete product family of fiber solutions to Infinium, which includes solutions ranging from high-density fiber modules, field-installable connectors, cassettes and adapters to patch cords and harnesses, as well as fiber enclosures and trunk cables.
Legrand also announced its newest product, the Infinium field-installable connector, which uses index-matching gel and a mechanical splice in the connector housing. The connector requires no special tools for installation, and terminates in less than two minutes, says Legrand. The connector is available in LC or SC with either laser-optimized 50-µ or single-mode fiber. The clip that holds the mechanical splice open for field fiber insertion doubles as a visual fault locator (VFL) window. When connected to a VFL, the light shines through the window on the clip. Once the field fiber is installed, the VFL light travels up the field fiber and the light in the window disappears, indicating a good connection.
