Fiber Optic Connectors

Size 5 | PL230 Connector Insert


The connector insert Size 5 | PL230 ensures a robust, reliable optical fiber connection. Its transmission performances are unaffected even in tough environments and when subjected to mechanical stresses. A sprung insert compensates for even significant tolerances and movements in the carrier system. Optical beam expansion makes the connectors, which are based on expanded beam technology, insensitive to contamination. The connector is coupled by means of a snap-on connecting sleeve.



  • Insensitive to contamination
  • Large number of mating cycles
  • Robust connector design
  • Easy to clean due to fused silica protective glass covers
  • Reliable and fast transmission of high data rates
  • The contacts can be inserted and released without any need for tools
  • Suitable for simplex cables of diameter 1.7 – 3.0 mm



  • Aerospace (e.g. ARINC 600 rectangular shells as well as for 38999 circular and rectangular shells)
  • Wind farms
