JEM Electronics Inc. in Franklin, Mass., is introducing a line of flexible, rugged fiber-optic cables for critical aerospace, military, automotive, industrial, and medical applications. The JEM ruggedized fiber-optic cable products, called Armored Fiber Optic Patch Cords, are designed to withstand twisting, kinking, crushing, and prevent rodent damage in applications where traditional optical fiber patch cables may fail during installation and operation. With a stainless-steel armored flexible tube inside the outer jacket and connectors, the rugged fiber-optic cables come in 9/125, 50/125, and 62.5/125 micron sizes and custom lengths for harsh environments. Available with SC, ST, MTRJ, FC, MU, E2000, SUS, and other connector types, JEM Armored Fiber Optic Patch Cords come in single- and multi-mode styles up to 500+ meters long. Insertion loss is 0.2 dB, return loss is less than or equal to 55 dB, and repeatability is less than or equal to 0.2 dB (single mode PC) and the stainless metal tube tensile strength is greater than or equal to 20 Kgf. The firm is ITAR certified, meet ISO 9001-2008, TS16949, and ISO13485 specifications, and are RoHS-compliant. For more information, visit JEM Electronics online at
