says its new CeeLok Fas-T connector system is the most rugged, small form
factor, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, field terminable I/O connector in the aerospace,
defense and marine marketplace.
The CeeLok FAS-T
connector easily meets today’s high-speed signal requirements and the expected
10 Gb/s speeds needed in the future, TE Connectivity says. Crimp-snap contacts enable
easy termination and field repair ability. Additionally its unique, integral back
shell with 360-degree shielding the connector’s single-piece design drives down
weight and cost, TE Connectivity says, while significantly improving overall
“The CeeLok FAS-T
connector provides an easy to terminate, high-speed/bandwidth interface that
delivers on the demand of Size Weight and Power (SWaP) reduction, without compromising
upon ever-increasing performance needs,” said Earle Olson, TE Connectivity’s business development manager, Global
Aerospace, Defense and Marine, in a company press release. “This new small
format, field terminable connector empowers a wide cross-section of industry
applications from in-flight applications for both commercial and military
platforms, as well as ground-based and marine-based needs.”
small form factor (Shell Size 8 – 0.750 inch) utilizes a panel cutout of
.698-inch (diameter) while maintaining outstanding signal integrity, TE Connectivity says, thanks to
the patented T-shaped pin pattern that provides noise cancellation and decoupling
to minimize cross talk. Additionally, the company says, the CeeLok FAS-T
connector has been designed to easily survive harsh environments in military,
commercial aerospace and marine/offshore applications.
The CeeLok FAS-T
connector is a true 100 Ohm impedance connector that is compatible with Cat5e,
Cat 6a and various other protocols ranging from the traditional 90 Ohm USB 2.0
to the more widely used 110 Ohm IEEE 1394 “fire wire.” Available in both
cable-applied and printed circuit board varieties, the CeeLok FAS-T connector
uniquely provides a means of transmitting high speed signals from the printed
circuit board to system peripherals, TE Connectivity, without sacrificing
speed, panel space, or environmental performance.
products that complement the new CeeLok FAS-T connectors are available and
include band straps, termination devices, molded boots, wire and cable and
complete harnessing capabilities.
Connectors are available from stock in the Peerless Electronics e commerce store.
