TE Connectivity in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, is introducing a compact 6-row Fortis Zd military connector for command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) applications in rugged environments that require high-speed, small size, and light weight. The connectors, suitable for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), satellites, and man-portable systems, support two differential pairs per row, and are available with 10 or 20 columns for as many as 40 signal pairs, company officials say.
Fortis Zd connectors support data rates of 12 gigabits per second, and meet mechanical and environmental requirements of defense and aerospace applications. The connectors are available in three styles: all-plastic shell, tamped metal shell, and machined metal shell.
