Key features and benefits
ELIO® AQ Fiber Optic Adaptor
ELIO® AQ adaptors enable the use of ELIO® fiber optic contact technology in all standard ARINC 600 and 38999 sIII connectors with insert cavities size 8. Many optical / electrical hybrid layouts are available.
The flight proven ELIO® fiber optics termini are designed around a robust 2.5mm ceramic ferrule. The assembly is as easy an ST connector. The insertion and retention inside the connector is ensured by a bayonet locking mechanism without any special tool. The termini integrates a seal inside the rear boot, thus the connection is sealed from the rear side without a backshell or a grommet. The 8D ELIO® range covers layouts from 1 to 24 ways in all types of material shell.
With the ELIO® AQ fiber optic adaptor, each cavity can be upgraded with the brand-new ELIOBEAM expanded beam ELIO® version.
In the female insert, the termini are flushed to the insert surface, thus making easy the fiber optical end-face inspection and cleaning, compared to the traditional dust collecting socket design.
The same termini part number can adapt tight or loose structure cable
The fiber optic termini is keyed for better vibration withstanding and optical performances repeatability
- Multimode contact - Insertion Loss (IL):
- < 0.3dB over 95% of the samples as per EN2591-601
- < 0.7dB maximum on 100% of the samples after tests
- Singlemode contact - Insertion Loss (IL):
- < 0.5dB over 95% of the samples as perEN2591-601
- < 0.9dB maximum on 100% of the samples after tests
