Fiber Optic Connectors

Delphi Hermaphroditic Connectors

Developed to meet the stringent demands of outdoor applications and to provide superior optical performance, Delphi Hermaphroditic Connectors also allow concatenations (linked together in series) of cable assemblies to extend equipment separation without concern for connector male / female interface compatibility. Additionally "blind mating" and "scoop-proof" features insure easy to mate interconnects.
