The OCC EZ-MATE family of hermaphroditic-style fiber optic connectors provides the most comprehensive solution for harsh, deployable mobilized communications systems. The EZ-MATE Interconnection offers the same proven technology used in advanced military communication systems coupled with a simplified interface capable of “blind mating.” With a variety of options, the EZ-MATE provides ruggedized connectivity in the most challenging environments.

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.

Applications

  • Ship-to-shore Communications Umbilical Connect
  • Mobile Emergency Telecommunications Stations
  • Mobile Tactical Shelters
  • U.S.. Army, Navy, And Marine Corps Military Tactical Deployments
  • Mobile of Remote Broadcast
  • Oil and Gas Industries (Brass and Stainless Steel material options)

Features

  • Easy, quick connections. The field-convertible hermaphroditic plug design allows for it to be converted to an in-line receptacle or back to plug within seconds. This enables plug-to-plug assemblies to be connected end-to-end without regard for male or female ends. The integrated “push-pull” system allows operators to terminate EZ-MATE plug and receptacles with ease.
  • Simple to use. Hard to break. In addition to the EZ-MATE’s user-friendly interface, the connector will resist extremely harsh mechanical and environmental conditions, including high vibration, fluid immersion, mechanical stress and thermal shock, and continues to operate under extreme tension loading when used with OCC tactical cable. Its ability to “blind-mate” is ideal for applications that require thousands of mating cycles. The enhanced Kevlar® retention system supports high cable tensile loading without loss of optical signal.
  • A variety of options to fit any application. Available for 2- to 24-channels, EZ-MATE allows maximum flexibility to accommodate specific applications. Each of the two shell sizes features a diverse set of receptacle configures to solve almost any application.

All EZ-MATE connectors can be utilized in any pre-terminated turnkey assemblies.

 

Provisioning Guidelines

1) Select the number of dummy termini necessary to fill a connector. Example, when planning for an 8 CH application, select 4 dummy termini to complete a 12 CH size connector.

2) Crimp sleeves are recommended for use on receptacle configurations without strain-relief. Crimp sleeves are generally used with 2.0mm Simplex loose tube cable for receptacle pigtails.  In addition, 4 CH and 12 CH EZ-MATE receptacles allow for the use of 3.00mm loose fiber optic cable.

Plating Options: All EZ-MATE configurations are supplied with black anodized as standard plating.  For the additional plating options, the "k" in the eighth digit position of the part number (e.g., CCCG22Mk1CD) is selected for the plating of choice. "1"     Black anodized, Mil-A-8625 TYPE 2 CLASS 2 "3"     Zinc nickel plating, SAE AMS 2417G "4"     303 stainless-steel, passivation per QQ-P-35/ASTMA967 "5"     316 stainless-steel, passivation per QQ-P-35/ASTMA967 "6"     Naval brass, C 46400 H02 half hard ASTMB 21/B21M
