ITT Interconnect Solutions has expanded its connector solutions line for aircraft data network systems. While the contact systems in these circular connectors were originally designed only for ARINC 600 specifications, they can now meet MIL-DTL-38999 Series III specifications as well.

"Due to the popularity of the Quadrax connector housings, we adapted the circular connectors to comply with 38999 Series III requirements to support customers with Ethernet applications in markets other than avionics," said Keith Teichmann, director of marketing for ITT. "We've seen extensive growth of this product line within the past few years, and we fully expect that to continue as more avionics manufacturers and others require high-speed Internet transmission."

Also included in the Quadrax connector product offering are the BKA series and DPX series rack and panel connectors. The BKA series connectors feature both rear and front release/removable, low insertion contacts, and hold 28 or 56 size 8 Quadrax contacts. The connectors are completely intermateable and intermountable with ARINC 600 standards.

The DPX series rack and panel connectors are offered in single-, two-, three- and four-gang versions and accommodate 7, 14, 21 and 28 size 8 Quadrax contacts, or 8, 16, 24 and 32 size 5 Quadrax contacts, respectively.

The Quadrax system is a four-interconnect contact enabling the transmission of high-speed signals required in Ethernet applications, including in-flight entertainment and information systems.

The Quadrax contact is a size 8 multi-pin contact providing four signal pins to yield a single Ethernet port. The crimp version of the size 8 Quadrax contacts terminates a 100Ω "Star Quad" cable.
