Hawthorne, NY (December 9, 2016)—Neutrik has named BTX as a Certified opticalCON Cable Assembler (COCA) for its opticalCON LITE line of fiber-optic connection systems.
“Each year, we find that fiber becomes more and more prevalent in the A/V market,” said Greg Schwartz, president and CEO of BTX Technologies. “The opticalCON LITE assemblies are an excellent middle ground between the classic opticalCON ADVANCED assemblies and standard fiber cables. BTX is proud to be one of the country’s first certified assembly houses for these products, and we will continue to expand our own expertise and fiber product offerings for both our A/V and broadcast focused customers.”
Neutrik’s opticalCON LITE is a semi-rugged fiber optic connection for a variety of applications. Assemblies made with opticalCON LITE can only be sold through Neutrik Certified opticalCON Cable Assemblers (COCAS), such as BTX, who have completed the required training process.
According to Peter Milbery, president of Neutrik USA, “Neutrik continues to expand our offering of fiber products through BTX and a small group of factory-trained, certified opticalCON cable assemblers. The opticalCON LITE line refers to cable assemblies only. LITE cables will mate with existing Neutrik opticalCON chassis connectors. LITE cable assemblies do not have shutters or the same retention force and ruggedness as our ADVANCED series. They are designed and cost optimized for semi-permanent and permanent patching installations. LITE cable assemblies also work well outdoors due to their IP65 rating in the mated condition. opticalCON LITE is an option for applications without a lot of mating cycles.”
