Class A connector

High-end equipment, compatibility and quality from Berlin-Adlershof, Germany.
After several years of experience in the area of connector refinement on the basis of multi-component ferrules the in-house production at FOC has been expanded to include full-ceramic connectors from 2006.

In 2011 FOC successfully launched its LSH Class A connector family as its new standard for low-loss LSH connectors on the market. These Class A connectors are based on a full-ceramic ferrule and have meanwhile been accepted by many customers as connectors which are undisputedly at least equivalent.
For an independent monitoring of its product quality FOC certificates the LSH Class A connectors of the GHMT since 2012.
With the qualification of a second LSH connector set supplier in 2013 the customers of FOC now can choose for the first time between two independent Class A connector set suppliers.

With an appropriate combination of materials and an evolved manufacturing technology FOC is able to manufacture the LSH Class A connector already prior to the adoption of the IEC standard with a maximum insertion loss of 0,1 dB (random).

By complying with the IEC 61754-15, the IEC 61755 series and the EN 50377-8 series standards the Class A continues to be compatible with the LSH connectors from other vendors observing these international standards. The independence from the connector manufacturer ensures a maximum investment protection and neutral calls for tender.
