USB, RJ45 and Quadrax Interconnects in Sealed, Ruggedized M5015 and M26482 Type Packaging
Special IFO Series Fiber Optic Solutions
Fiber optic connectors, termini and cables are ideally suited for high-reliability settings such as commercial, military, mass-transit and naval applications. Glenair is unique in the industry for our vertical ability to design, produce and deliver high-speed I/O interconnect cables and harnesses including fiber optic cabling for extreme environmental exposure, corrosion resistance, improved fiber tensile strength and resistance to micro-bending. We are a recognized leader in the manufacture of high-reliability fiber optic connection systems for the most advanced and challenging systems, including every branch of the military as well as industrial markets in every configuration requirement.
High-Speed Series IFO Fiber Optic Configurations
Based on our proven harsh environment ITS Ruggedized Connectors Series, the IFO fiber optic version offers several configurations utilizing 2, 4, 6, or 12 fiber optic termini in a single connector. Available termini can accomodate 9/125 (Single-Mode), 50/125 and 62/125 (Multi-Mode) optical fibers.
Basic Fiber Optic Link
EMI and Spark/Arc Immunity
Optical fiber is particularly useful in high reliability applications due to its electromagnetic immunity. Since fiber optic media uses light to transmit signals, it is not subject to electromagnetic interference, radio frequency interference or voltage surges, and so provides greater transmission reliability. The total electrical isolation of fiber also makes it a safer, spark-free media for use in hazardous environments, such as high speed rail signals, tactical field communications, and Naval applications.
Introduction to High Speed "DataLink"
PC Tail Termination Note
To prevent detrimental intrusion of cleaning solvents/water into the connector when terminating, the connector must be protected IAW IPC J-STD-001 and/or NASA STD-8739.3. For assistance and/or additional information, please contact factory.
