First post guys so please be patient if I mess up.
I need a solution to connect 2 LC patch leads within an Exe enclosure.
One lead comes from a Westermo MCI-211G media convertor fitted with a Cisco GLC-SX-MM SFP transceiver, which is located within an Exd enclosure (then potted through into the Exe enclosure as per NORSOK regs), the other patch lead then goes to a non Ex rated patch panel (the media convertor is powered from the safe power system post purge).
If I wasn't constrained by the design of this particular module I would use an ATEX approved media converter (Primation P-Ex 1000 series) and locate it outside the enclosures but .....
I know that a standard LC to LC connector is a "simple device" and is completely passive, however it is not stamped with the magic ATEX CE approval.
Any solutions very welcome.
