10-gigabyte connectors for aerospace and defense uses introduced by TE Connectivity
HARRISBURG, Pa., 1 Dec. 2014. TE Connectivity in Harrisburg, Pa., is introducing the CeeLok FAS-X connector that meets aerospace and military industry demand for 10-gigabyte-per-second requirements and other high-speed protocols such as IEEE 1394b I/O, Fibre channel networks and Modular D38999 for harsh environment applications.
The CeeLok FAS-X connector combines rugged reliability with signal integrity to support today's high-speed protocols and fast protocols of the future. The connector has fast field termination and repair, requiring only standard contact insertion/removal and crimping tools.
Designed for optimal signal integrity, the patented shielding arrangement virtually eliminates crosstalk and isolates each pair through the connector to provide improved impedance matching, TE officials say.
CeeLok FAS-X connectors have an operating range of minus 60 Celsius to 200 Celsius, and are moisture and corrosion resistant for airborne and naval operations. They also are available in a size 25 shell with a variety of standard D38999 modules to accommodate various counts of size 22, 20 and 16 contacts.
