TVOP - LJTOP - RNJOP - STARTOP

TVOP, LJTOP, RNJOP and Startop product range offers the most comprehensive range of ruggedized optical connectors based on MIL DTL 38999 Series and its derivatives. More than ten years ago, Amphenol developed the first generation of optical termini for multiway connectors in accordance with the MIL 29504 specification. Combined with the MIL DTL 38999 serie III shells, the Startop offers the intermateability with other MIL 29504. The new generation TVOP, LJTOP, RNJOP uses the proven 38999 or derivated shell, and the standard termini (Ø 2.5 mm) which is designed to provide a high reliability performance and cost effectives solutions for outdoor and indoor applications.

Lux Beam

Lux Beam

Amphenol introduces the LUX-BEAM™ Single Expanded beam termini. A solution to upgrade the optical physical contact technology to an optical contacless technology. LUX-BEAM™ is easy to clean, less sensitive to pollution by dust or debris. The contactless coupling of LUX-BEAM™ is not subject to degradation of performances resulting from friction of optical surfaces as it usual is on traditional butt joint termini. With its patented pin to socket realignment feature, LUX-BEAM™ is compatible with connectors from different suppliers and provides an efficient adjustment to tolerances during mating. Per design, LUX-BEAM™ is as easy to install or replace as a FUSE on a patch board.

LRM with Fiber Optic Termini

LRM with Fiber Optic Termini

High speed fiber optic transmission is available within LRM connectors for use in advanced avionics systems. Optical performance of fiber optic termini within in LRM connectors are the same as termini used in circular connectors. Insertion losses range from .3dB to <1.5dB depending upon launch conditions, fiber NA, fiber size and the type of termination. Inserts for MIL-T-29504/1, /2, /14 and /15 can be incorporated. Termini for LRMs can be supplied - consult Amphenol Aerospace for ordering information. The termini are determined by insert and shell style of the connector. LRM interconnects can have hybrid arrangements of fiber optics with Brush contacts, as well as other contact types.

Cable Assemblies

Cable Assemblies

The D38999 circular connector series is designed for harsh environments, particularly those with wide temperature ranges and high mechanical vibrations. This electrical connector is adapted for fiber optics by using M29504/4 and /5 termini. These termini fit into any size 16 contact cavity. Precise alignment is critical to fiber optic connectors. The tightly toleranced fiber optic D38999 connectors ensure precise alignment with precision-machined polarization keys and keyways which reduce radial misalignment. This precision yields superior optical performance when compared to standard D38999 connectors. Tight tolerance D38999 connectors also have a positive bottoming surface and conductive surface plating, assuring exceptional EMI/RFI performance. All D38999 connectors feature a non-conductive insert, making this an excellent connector choice when optical fibers and electrical wires must be used in the same connector. The D38999 series offers a wide range of shell sizes, backshells and insert patterns. Standard contacts and termini are available, making any design simple and costeffective.
Features
• Rugged, multi-channel D38999 Series III connectors
• Incorporates proven M29504 termini
• Available in aluminum, stainless steel or composite materials
• Size 16 single and multimode termini
• Butt joint interface is guaranteed through a spring loaded terminus design
