HARRISBURG, Pa. – TE has launched its MULTIGIG RT 3 connector, which supports speeds of 25+Gb/s. The ruggedized design makes these connectors suited to withstand many extreme military, aerospace, and space environments.

MULTIGIG RT 3 connectors employ quad-redundant contacts to meet VITA standards for performance under intense vibrations. Each MULTIGIG RT 3 connector is made of durable, lightweight thermoplastic and copper alloys.

MULTIGIG RT 3 connectors integrate with other VPX products. They conform to VITA 46 industry standards, making them backwards compatible with legacy OpenVPX systems. Furthermore, their modular design enables numerous configurations by interchanging higher-speed RT 3 connectors with the legacy MULTIGIG RT 2 and RT 2-R connectors.

TE’s MULTIGIG RT 3 connectors are designed for military electronics, C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence [C4]; Information, Surveillance, Recon [ISR]) electronic warfare systems, avionics, ground defense, missile defense and systems designed for outer space.
