The FieldShield Flat-SC is the first connector to provide hardened environmental performance on a flat drop style cable without the added cost or dependency in the market’s existing bulky solution. Plugged directly into the FieldShield YOURx-Terminal, this low cost offering provides matching hardened connector performance, yet carries a significant up-front reduction in cap/ex costs when compared to existing market offerings.
