ITT develops circular fiber optic connector for military applications

SANTA ANA, Calif., 20 Feb. 2010. ITT Interconnect Solutions developed a family of circular fiber optic connectors for use in harsh environments, called the PHD 38999 Series.

The new fiber optic connectors were designed in response to demands for an interconnect system that can group multiple fiber optic terminations in a rugged circular connector profile while also withstanding harsh environments, company officials say.

"Initially developed for high speed backplane systems in telecom switching applications, the PHD termination and connector system delivers a high density package with superior optical signal transmission performance," says Keith Teichmann, director of marketing for ITT Interconnect Solutions. "The PHD 38999 Series connectors were also designed for packaging flexibility, offering a variety of circular and rectangular MIL specification and standard connector configurations."

Available as complete custom fiber optic cable assemblies, the PHD fiber optic connectors are compatible with M38999 outside dimensions and feature an all-metallic backshell with a sealing grommet and removable alignment insert assembly. The connector is available in sizes 20, 24, 28, and 36. A shielding kit is also included.

Typical pricing for the PHD 38999 Series pin version (depending on shell size and style) ranges from $240 to $480 each, while pricing for the PHD 38999 socket version with insert assembly (depending on shell size and style) ranges from $360 to $640 each. Lead time is from 12 to 14 weeks.
