FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RENTON, Wash., September 14, 2018 — Lightel® Supplies SMA and D80 Laser Cable Assemblies
Lightel offers cable assemblies equipped with SMA or D80 connectors for medium power laser delivery in medical and industrial applications. These connectors are terminated with a free-standing, epoxyless fiber tip which prevents the ferrule from melting or the possible burning of epoxy. Also, the copper ferrule provides better heat dissipation than those found in traditional multimode connectors. In addition, the connector incorporates sapphire protection whereby a sapphire disc is inserted between the copper ferrule and the fiber tip to protect the ferrule from energy accumulation and return. Steel-armored protection tubing is offered to ensure laser safety and all assemblies are provided in either standard or customer-specified lengths and colors.
