I have a fibre optic cable to be connected to the BFOC port of a Scalance x106-1 module. How do I connect this and what are the materials required?
A pre terminated fibre optic patch cable with length between 0.5 m and 300 meter. http://support.automation.siemens.com/WW/view/en/27708641
Multimode cable by meter e.g. http://support.automation.siemens.com/WW/view/en/18157559 plus ST (BFOC) connector http://support.automation.siemens.com/WW/view/en/4088160
Other fibre optic multimode cable e.g. ground cable with ST connector
We would recommend the cable to be terminated by trained companies / installer. The following termination tool fits perfectly the Simatic Fast connect FO system. http://support.automation.siemens.com/WW/view/en/18714069
The following YouTube link shows how this works. http://youtu.be/o2COYEzdvX8
