EN 50173-1:2011 for example specifies only beige and black for multimode connectors. Telegärtner offers its OM4 multimode connectors and couplings in the standard-compliant colour black by default. However, violet OM4 connectors have become more and more common in installations.
In order to offer customers a comprehensive product range, Telegärtner is expanding its product set and offers OM4 connectors and couplings in the non-standard-compliant violet colour upon request. The popular TICNET-Configurator, which offers quick and easy configuration of pre-assembled fibre optics solutions in the Internet, is already updated to reflect this new offering.
