THYEZ, France – Amphenol Socapex in Thyez, France, is introducing the MPO Field TV connector for harsh-environment applications like high-speed embedded network backbones aboard surface warships, armored combat vehicles, aircraft, and trains.
The MPO Field TV connector enables users to transform a standard MPO patchcord into a high-reliability connector designed to resist the harshest environments.
The MPO patchcord is integrated into a metallic plug based on MIL-STD-38999 Series III shell size 13 military connector that protects sensitive electronics from shock, dust, and fluids.
MPO Field TV connector combines high-speed and high-density MPO/MTP fiber-optic connectors using MT ferules with the high resistance of MIL-DTL-38999 Series III military shells.
These harsh-environment connectors offer high density and speed; 12 or 24 fiber channels integrated into 28-millimeter diameter 38999 metal shells with tri thread coupling; and no tool or field cabling required.
