Overview

The Optik-DTM Series is an ARINC 801-conforming fiber optic terminus intended for use in the Combo-D family of connector products, which is a mixed density connector comprised of size 8 and size 20 contacts. The core technology resides within the factory-installed precision adapters that occupy one or more size 8 cavities and accept the optical terminus.

Advantages of Fiber Optics

  • High bandwidth
  • EMI immunity
  • Reduced wiring bulk and weight
  • Improved data security safety in explosive environments
  • Minimal losses over long distances
  • Future proofing of applications
  • Elimination of group loops
  • Especially advantageous in industries such as medical imaging, aerospace, oil & gas and telecom

Optik-D Features

  • Ultra low insertion loss of 0.06 dB (typical) means less optical power is required, which can mean the difference between an inexpensive LED laser and a costly solid state laser
  • Suitable for harsh environments
  • More cost effective than D38999 or ARINC 600-based systems
  • Wide availability of accessories
  • Compatible with other ARINC 801 termini
  • Hybrid connector allows for combination of optical, power, signal and/or coax in a single connector
