Optical Fiber Locking Patch Cords



Region: global

The Molex Optical Fiber Locking Patch Cords are designed to prevent unauthorized changes in highly sensitive applications.

These highly sensitive applications include data centers and Secure IT networks where multiple physical layer classifications may exist. The especially designed SC and compact Uni-Body LC plug into any industry compliant SC or LC adapter or active device port but cannot be disconnected without the use of a special extraction tool.

The efficient design accommodates high density patching applications and is ideal to secure physical layer control in military and federal networking, video broadcast and highly sensitive data center markets.

The extraction tools allow for easy manual connector removal even from high density patch panels and are color coded to match the connector key type. The connectors plug into both duplex and quad adapters.
