Radiall EB-LuxCis Multipin Connectors
Radiall EB-LuxCis multipin connectors provide the high-performance durability of expanded-beam technology.
Radiall launched the EB-LuxCis product range, which features the widely used LuxCis ARINC 801 fiber optic contact inserted in a two- or four-channel expanded-beam insert. The product range is available in various circular or rectangular connectors and is suitable for high-contamination environments and demanding applications where ease of maintenance is necessary.
“Implementing high-performance optical solutions that withstand harsh-environment conditions and provide an easy cleaning process is now possible with this new product range. We have combined the best technologies to answer customer needs for a reliable connection offering reduced sensitivity to contamination,” said Luc Kaes, vice president of product management.
A key advantage of the EB-LuxCis product range is the ability to use up to four standard LuxCis ARINC 801 cable assemblies, which simplifies and reduces maintenance. The expanded-beam technology also offers advantages for cleaning and reduces sensitivity to particulate contamination and misalignment. Accommodating both multimode and single-mode fibers and different cable diameters, this versatile and ruggedized solution features a scoop-proof design that reduces the risk of damaging the optical end face when mating is done, even on difficult-to-reach areas.
The current range includes EB-LuxCis with MIL-DTL-38999 and EN4165 interfaces and will be expanded. Radiall designs and manufactures harnesses equipped with EB- LuxCis for avionics, radar, electronic warfare, power, and flight management applications.
