Rugged Ethernet nano circular connectors for airborne networking in UAVs, missiles, and C4ISR introduced by TE
HARRISBURG, Pa., 16 Feb. 2014. TE Connectivity in Harrisburg, Pa., is introducing the rugged CeeLok FAS-T nano circular connector for 10 Gigabit Ethernet applications in missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), soldier systems, and command, control, communications, computers, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR).
The CeeLok FAS-T nano circular connector also is suitable for weapons, ground support systems, avionics, instrumentation, and down-hole telemetry tools.
The rugged connectors are available in board-mount and cable-applied versions with quick disconnect or threaded coupling options, as well as in corrosion-resistant nickel-plated aluminum or stainless steel.
The CeeLok FAS-T has a T-shaped pin pattern that provides noise cancellation and decoupling to minimize crosstalk, and is designed for optimum high-speed signal performance in the harshest environments in military, commercial aerospace, and marine offshore applications.
"The need to transfer video and data at high speeds is increasing throughout the market," says Steve McIntire, product manager of global aerospace, defense, and marine at TE Connectivity. "The CeeLok FAS-T nano circular connector provides a high-speed/bandwidth I/O connector in a form factor that occupies less than 3/8 of an inch of panel space."
