Taking advantage of the first network standard, designed from start to finish for fibre optics, the AMP Fixed Shroud Duplex (FSD) System offers the components necessary for a high performance FDDI local area network. The FSD connector, based on proven 2.5mm ceramic ferrule technology, is a two channel snap-fit connector that combines low loss, typically 0.2dB, with positive side latch mating, polarisation, easy to use keying and bend limiting strain relief.

A rigid protective shroud guards the connector's floating ferrules against damage from mishandling or mismatching. The connector can be chosen to accept either flat 'zip-cord', or round duplex cable.


  • Insertion loss: 0.2dB typical
  • Mating cycles: 0.1dB change after 500 cycles
  • Cable retention: 150N min
  • Operating temperature: -40ºC to +85ºC
