“The CeeLok FAS-T connector provides an easy to terminate, high-speed/bandwidth interface that delivers on the demand of Size Weight and Power (SWaP) reduction, without compromising upon ever-increasing performance needs,” said Earle Olson, business development manager, Global Aerospace, Defense & Marine, TE Connectivity. “This new small format, field terminable connector empowers a wide cross-section of industry applications from in-flight applications for both commercial and military platforms, as well as ground-based and marine-based needs.”
The connector’s small form factor (Shell Size 8 – 0.750”) utilizes a panel cutout of .698" (diameter) while maintaining outstanding signal integrity thanks to the patented T-shaped pin pattern that provides noise cancellation and decoupling to minimize cross talk. Additionally, the CeeLok FAS-T connector has been designed to easily survive harsh environments in military, commercial aerospace and marine/offshore applications.
The CeeLok FAS-T connector is a true 100 Ohm impedance connector that is compatible with Cat5e, Cat 6a and various other protocols ranging from the traditional 90 Ohm USB 2.0 to the more widely used 110 Ohm IEEE 1394 “fire wire.” Available in both cable-applied and printed circuit board varieties, the CeeLok FAS-T connector uniquely provides a means of transmitting high speed signals from the printed circuit board to system peripherals without sacrificing speed, panel space, or environmental performance.
Associated products that complement the new CeeLok FAS-T connectors are available and include band straps, termination devices, molded boots, wire and cable and complete harnessing capabilities.
