1 © DIAMOND SA / X-BEAM / / 1 X-BEAM Connector Up to 4 channels SM and MM optical connections based on Expanded Beam technology

2 © DIAMOND SA / X-BEAM / / 2 The product X-BEAM OLC (Optical Lenses connector) X-BEAM OLB (Optical Lenses Bulkhead)

3 © DIAMOND SA / X-BEAM / / 3 Expanded Beam Technology  The expanded beam technology uses an optical system consisting of lenses. The X-BEAM physically expands and collimates the transmission signal into an optical beam, which will then be reflected back onto the core of the receiving fiber. –This concept provides an easy alignment and makes the transmission less sensitive to particles of dirt on the lens surface

5 © DIAMOND SA / X-BEAM / / 5 Features of the SM version  Better IL values thanks to Diamond Technologies –Thanks to the patented Diamond ferrule technology and the core alignment with the crimping tools, the position of the light bundle is optimized, in order to obtain the best Insertion loss value. Active Core Alignment system Diamond Ferrule front face 8° APC

6 © DIAMOND SA / X-BEAM / / 6 Features of the SM version  As a first step the ferrules are inserted into the metal holder and the positions of the light bundles are located, measuring eccentricity and angle (e ; Θ ) θ e

7 © DIAMOND SA / X-BEAM / / 7 Features of the SM version  Thanks to the 2nd crimping tool, the eccentricity parameters, which allow to improve the position of the luminous bundle and therefore decrease attenuation, are optimized In the second step.
