Oct. 5, 2011 - PRLog -- Dayton, OH – October 4, 2011 – Total Cable Solutions (TCS) recently announced a newly designed take on the Uniboot fiber patch Cable, The Universal LC™. The Universal LC™ addresses the increasing demand for mini LC connectors in high-density data centers by incorporating a universal, adjustable connector that will work in both LC and mini LC ports. Another key feature that makes the Universal LC valuable is the ability to reverse polarity.

Michele Lam, Account Manager at Instor Solutions, said, “This is the first time we’ve seen a cable with universal connectivity. It saves space, future-proofs our customers’ cable investments... the Universal LC™ will definitely save you money.”

The Universal LC™ also features a 2mm Jacket that contains both simplex fibers while sill terminating into a duplex LC, mini LC, or SC connector. Since typical fiber optical cables use zip-cord (separate) jackets, which measure 6mm, the innovative 2mm design of the Universal LC™ has made it possible to gain a space savings of over 66%.

Additional features of the Universal LC™ include Bend Insensitive Fiber (BIF), helping to prevent fiber breakdown and substantial power loss, and a Rapid Release Latch™ designed to allow technicians to use a simple “push/pull” method for removing the connector from a crowded panel.

Pricing for the Universal LC™, available only from TCS distributors, starts at a list price of $29.00.
