RFCX series Fiber Optic Rotary Adapters (FORAs) are uniquely designed to have the identical cross sections and mounting features as their standard bulkhead adapter counterparts, sometimes also called mating sleeves.
Similar to other Princetel's single-channel FORJs, the RFCX model features low insertion loss and small loss variation during rotation (wow). Return loss can reach as high as >40 dB depending on the conditions of the mating connectors. Well conditioned connectors can also result in typical losses of around 1 dB. They are rugged, sealed for dust and moisture, and can operate under temperature extremes.
