Plant and control room
Systems such as slide gates, the water level, the emergency release and the dam wall load must be controlled and monitored remotely for hydroelectric plants. Fiber optics are ideal for monitoring systems over large distances. HUBER+SUHNER supplies smart cabling solutions which significantly facilitate the installation of a communication network including fieldbus and enable data to be transmitted reliably in harsh environmental conditions. From a central station control point, the cables are installed to sub-control points and then further to various smart electronic devices. The plug-and-play system is used on site without any additional installation work and delivers cost-effective maintenance and service. In addition, the control centre of a power plant faces a number of challenges. A high volume of data must be processed and the complex interplay of producers, storage systems and consumers must ensure a perfect, uninterrupted energy supply. Reliable, bespoke products from HUBER+SUHNER provide suitable solutions for this purpose. Regardless of whether connectivity is required via radio frequency solutions or fiber optic-based systems, the wide product portfolio supports current and future applications.
HUBER+SUHNER QMA and QN connectors have a quick-lock coupling mechanism. QMA and QN are easy to mate and allow a high packaging density because no tools are needed.
Providing cables that reliably transmit ever increasing volumes of data while meeting demaning market requirements is the greatest challenge for cable manufacturers. For this purpose, HUBER+SUHNER has included databus cables in its product range for different markets.
HUBER+SUHNER combines extensive expertise in data communication with electron-beam-cross-linked material technology. The databus cables developed in-house (pre-terminated on request) provide reliable solutions for use in high-temperature applications and harsh environmental conditions. The databuses fulfil the requirements of different markets due to their excellent mechanical and electrical characteristics.
HUBER+SUHNER offers a wide range of fiber optical cables, optimised for fix or mobile applications at indoor and outdoor areas. Due to new market demands innovative products are developed and tested in accordance with international standards, which fulfil high mechanical and thermal conditions as well as fire requirements.
Fiber Optic connectors and adapters
HUBER+SUHNER offers a wide range of fiber optic connectors optimised for both indoor and outdoor applications. Customer-specific connectors are also available in addition to a comprehensive standard product portfolio. In response to the rapid increase in requirements on different markets, HUBER+SUHNER develops innovative products tested in accordance with international standards. All fiber optic connectors meet the highest mechanical and thermal specifications.
Front access fiber management systems
The LISA front access system is focused on speed of installation and network security during installation or maintenance. The LISA front access system represents a modular group of products that enables seamless connection of passive optical networks especially in central office environments. Reliability and performance are key to the success of our industry which is why we have ensured that the highest level of fiber protection and bend-radius limitation are standard across all front access system solutions. The center piece of the front access system is a unique and versatile compact module that can be used for pigtail, direct cable splicing or for the integration of pre-connectorised passive components such as splitters.
LISA compact modules for MultiCircuit (MCM) applications combine simple installation and maximum security within an optical network. An integrated loose tube storage facility in each module allows easy removal of the splicing machine without disturbing neighbouring modules. In telecommunication environments, the compact module is particularly suitable for simple physical connections between the equipment and the passive infrastructure by means of inter-connect or cross-connect.
