Project Description


Physical Contact Connectors – Specialty

In response to the growing need for fiber optic monitoring systems in oil wells, Amphenol Fiber Systems International (AFSI) has developed the DeepSight® fiber optic connector for use in downhole applications. DeepSight® has the ability to withstand the high pressure, temperatures and corrosive fluids found in downhole environments. These connectors are precision-machined to stringent tolerances and designed to provide superior optical performance in extreme conditions. Custom version available as required by the application.


  • Supports both multimode and single mode fiber
  • Expanded beam technology is less susceptible to dust and debris
