Fiber Optic Connectors for Shipboard Applications

The NF Series of connectors is based on the modern MIL-DTL-28876 standard for fiber optic connectors. M28876 connectors were designed for use in fiber optic shipboard applications by the U.S. Navy. Milnec meets that requirement for performance and durability with the NF Series. Connectors are available in four shell sizes with five contact arrangements. Contacts feature low insertion loss (-0.35dB typ MM, -0.35dB typ SM) and are compatible with single or multimode termini. Available backshells offer environmental protection and are field serviceable in accordance with MIL-STD-2042.

For additional help in specifying your M28876 connector solution, please contact a Milnec sales professional, or your authorized distributor for technical and sales support.

Milnec COTS products are not qualified through the DLA and are not listed on the QPL.
