PASO ROBLES, Calif., 2 May 2016. Esterline Connection Technologies in Paso Robles, Calif., is introducing the MQuick rectangular connectors for commercial aircraft cabin avionics connection applications.

The MQuick rectangular connectors feature components built around standard modules, mechanical connections, and accessories. It consists of 18 male and female modules with crimp, straight PC tail, and 90-degree PC tail contacts.

These connectors can accommodate applications that require signal connectors, power connectors, broadband connectors, or optical connectors in commercial aircraft cabins.

The MQuick connectors meet the interconnection standards of the two major commercial aircraft manufacturers, Airbus and Boeing. "The MQuick range's push-pull function also makes it easier to install and maintain cabin environments, such as on-board systems," says Morgann Forlorou, the MQuick product manager at Esterline.
