Amphenol Aerospace high speed solutions develops hermetic and feed-through ARINC 801 fiber optic assemblies

Amphenol Aerospace, a global leader in interconnect technologies, now offers hermetically sealed assemblies and bulkhead feed-throughs in the ARINC 801 circular connector format for fiber optic interconnects. These assemblies are designed for aerospace applications demanding a high level of environmental and pressure sealing. Using processes and materials originally developed for Amphenol's industry-leading hermetically sealed electrical connectors, these fiber optic assemblies can achieve sealing rates in excess of 1X10^-5 He/sec. They are available in all standard shell size/insert arrangements for multi-mode (50/125um and 62.5/125um) and single-mode optical fiber. 

These assemblies are available in two designs:
Sealed assemblies – customer specified optical sub-assemblies (fiber type, length, lead terminations) are installed into the connector and the back of the connector is sealed.
Bulkhead feed-through – a panel mounted, double-ended jam-nut receptacle with pin-pin contacts

Amphenol supplies the full line of ARINC 801 connectors in shell sizes ranging from 11 to 25 and fiber counts from 2 to 32. ARINC 801 termini are available in multi-mode, single-mode, and single-mode APC versions. All ARINC 801 connectors and termini are fully compliant with industry specifications and have been tested to the most stringent aerospace requirements. Amphenol also maintains full-service cable assembly facilities to design and fabricate any type of fiber optic cable harness from simple jumper cables to multi-branched harnesses.

Jared Sibrava, Director of Amphenol Aerospace's High Speed Solutions Division says, "The combination of hermetic assemblies and feed-through connectors to our ARINC 801 portfolio provides discriminating solutions for our customers as they integrate fiber optics into platforms for Commercial Aerospace and Defense applications."
