AFC Industrial Plug and Play (IPP) Cabling System AFC’s Industrial Plug and Play cabling system provides a market leading ruggedised, fast and efficient connection system particularly suited to industrial applications including mining, infrastructure, defence and process control. The modular product set comprises ruggedised cables and connectors, IP rated enclosures, and rapid deployment reels. The solution is ideal for extreme environments where physical and chemical protection are critical factors. The solution meets military specifications and MSHA standards.

We Partner with High Quality Global Manufacturers To bring the highest quality to our IPP system we have partnered with international manufacturers who specialise in individual components and AFC have integrated these providing a leading edge engineered solution.

Benefits of Using an AFC IPP Cabling System • Significant reduction in installation times resulting in – less time exposed to dust or moisture – less time personnel are exposed to hazardous areas and harsh environmental conditions • Easy deployment and redeployment due to the modular style • Faster restoration of service, reducing downtime • Consistent long term optical performance due to IP68 environment rating • Compliance to military cable specifications, providing crush resistance, flex resistance and repeated impacts • Terminated cable assemblies are fully tested before delivery, ensuring maximum optical performance • Manufacturered to TIA, ISO/IEC and AS/NZS standards

Enclosure Options DIN Rail Mounted Enclosures AFC offers an extensive range of DIN rail mounted enclosures to suit most industrial and harsh environment networks. They can be custom designed and manufactured to suit a particular application, or fibre count and can accommodate all types of coupler plates. They are ideal for any plug and play solution, when used with AFC’s industrial or harsh environment connector systems. A variety of materials can be used in the manufacture including powder coated mild steel or stainless steel, which makes them well suited for all mining and Department of Defence applications.

Modular DIN Rail Mounted Enclosure The modular DIN rail mounted enclosure has two mounting options and utilises a range of adapter plates. It has top, bottom and side cable entry points and can be used for fusion splicing and direct termination. It can hold up to 48 splices and is key lockable for added security.

Mini DIN Rail Mounted Enclosure The mini DIN rail mounted enclosure allows up to 12 splices but can be increased to 24 when two enclosures are joined side-by-side (i.e. when using a 24F cable). It has top and bottom cable entry points and can be used for fusion splicing and direct termination.

Small DIN Rail Mounted Enclosure The small DIN rail mounted enclosure allows for one adapter panel and has multiple cable entry points. It can be used for fusion splicing (max 24 splices), direct termination or MTP cassettes. The two mounting options available allow either wall or DIN rail mounting. There is also a clear cover available if required for Department of Defence applications.

Rack Mount Sliding Enclosures AFC has a comprehensive range of rack mounted sliding enclosures available in 1RU, 2RU and 3RU. All AFC sliding enclosures use high quality, double extended rails to increase the internal accessibility during fibre termination or when maintenance is required. These enclosures allow for several types of front panels, from the standard modular adapter panels up to the high density panels for larger fibre counts. They cover a range of styles which allows the incoming cable to move or remain fixed when the tray is opened. This is important, particularly where there is limited cable movement allowed within the rack.

IP Rated Enclosures and Cabinets AFC offers an extensive range of IP rated enclosures to suit most industrial and harsh environment networks. They can be custom designed and manufactured to suit a particular application, or fibre count, and can accommodate all types of coupler plates. They are ideal for any plug and play solution, when used with AFC’s industrial or harsh environment connector systems. A variety of materials can be used in the manufacture including powder coated mild steel or stainless steel, which makes them well suited for all mining and Department of Defence applications.

Cable and Pre-Terminated Assemblies AFC has a long history of supplying specialty fibre optic cable and cable assemblies for use in harsh environments. We offer a broad range of fibre optic cables for high bandwidth transmission of data, video (including High Definition broadcast signals) and audio communications. Our indoor/outdoor cables use a unique tight buffer coating and design that provides excellent mechanical and environmental protection for the optical fibres. The large variety of cable designs and configurations available provides long term reliability, security, reusability and are field deployable. Cables can be supplied on ruggedised cable reels (MARS – Modular Advanced Reeling System) for extra cable protection and ease of installation. Features which allow these cables to be deployed in the harshest of environments include: • Superior rodent protection • High crush resistance • Chemical and UV protection • Compliance to Mil Spec and MSHA standards • High bandwidth • Long term reliability

Connectivity Expanded Beam (EB) Technology AFC’s range of expanded beam fibre optic connectors has been designed for the most demanding industrial applications. These applications include military tactical communications, outside broadcasts and in petrochemical, mining and offshore systems. The expanded beam technology ensures you receive reliable optical performance in contaminated and extreme environments. AFC is a certified manufacturer and repairer of expanded beam connector assemblies. Benefits of expanded beam technology: • Resistant to dust, dirt and other contaminants • Fibre is sealed and protected behind a glass lens, which amplifies the optical signal for optimum data transfer • Easily cleaned without risk of fibre damage • Cable retention mechanism provides strength • Hermaphroditic multi-channel connectors allow cables to be daisy chained

Multi-Channel Physical Contact Connectors AFC offers a range of multi-channel physical contact connectivity solutions for industrial applications including process control. These connectors are available in a range of sizes, shell styles, materials and mating mechanisms to suit a wide range of applications and environments. Many cable types and sizes can be accommodated including fibre only or composite fibre and copper for remote powering of equipment. • Ruggedised connector housings • Wide variety of insert configurations • Wide variety of shell sizes • Fibre/copper hybrids • Hermaphroditic multi-channel connectors allow cables to be daisy chained

Ruggedised Standard Connectors Some applications require added connector protection but do not warrant the introduction of a specialty connector. A standard connector with a special rugged housing is the solution for these applications. AFC offers a range of ruggedised fibre optic connector assemblies and adapters suited to industrial environments. • SC, LC and RJ45 standard connector types • Various ruggedised housings and bulkheads • IP rated housings to protect against water and dirt • Superior resistance to chemicals • Reliability in a wide temperature range
