SuperK CONNECT broadband fiber delivery

SuperK CONNECT is a unique high performance fiber delivery system complete with broadband fibers and a range of termination options such as FC/PC connectors or collimators. Interfacing is handled by the CONNECT precision fiber coupling unit that ensure easy and stable single-mode coupling that can be disconnected and reconnected without alignment.
