Amphenol Aerospace High Speed Solutions Advances ARINC 801 Fiber Optic Connector Options for Military and Commercial Aerospace Applications
In addition to offering standard ARINC 801, Amphenol Aerospace now offers highly configurable connector products as well as complete solutions that include connector, termini, and cable assemblies.
SIDNEY, N.Y., May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Amphenol Aerospace (NYSE: APH), a global leader in interconnect technologies, now offers more configurable ARINC 801 fiber optic connector options. In addition to supplying ARINC 801 connectors in standard OD Cadmium and Electroless Nickel platings, Amphenol Aerospace now offers these connectors with two additional RoHS compliant platings: Durmalon and Black Zinc Nickel. These non-magnetic and non-reflective finishes are ideal for military and harsh environments where resistance to salt spray and other materials is critical.
The ARINC 801 plug connectors can be combined with Amphenol’s Dualok technology for superior performance in high vibration environments. Dualok is an enhanced anti-decoupling mechanism that can be used on virtually any cylindrical plug connector and backshell. The Dualok interconnect system greatly improves electrical and optical performance in harsh environments and will mate with standard receptacles.
Amphenol supplies the full line of ARINC 801 connectors in shell sizes ranging from 11 to 25 and fiber counts from 2 to 32. ARINC 801 termini are available in multimode, single-mode, and single-mode APC versions. All ARINC 801 connectors and termini are fully compliant with industry specifications and have been tested to the most stringent aerospace requirements. Amphenol also maintains full-service cable assembly facilities to design and fabricate any type of fiber optic cable harness from simple jumper cables to multi-branched harnesses.
Jared Sibrava, Director of Amphenol Aerospace’s High Speed Solutions Division says, “Amphenol provides a highly configurable, discriminating, and cost competitive ARINC 801 product portfolio that combined with our extensive high speed copper portfolio and cable assembly capability, gives systems integrators a great technical resource for current and future product programs.”
Amphenol’s ARINC 801 is fully qualified, tested, and proven. With a large installed customer base and constant technology infusion of new products and capabilities, Amphenol Aerospace High Speed Solutions is ready to provide unparalleled design and technical support to the military and aerospace markets. Amphenol’s ARINC 801 is also completely intermateable with similar products from other ARINC 801 connector manufacturers.
