New next generation avionics connector inserts from ITT ICS save space and weight

by donpedro

ITT Interconnect Solutions, has announced a new Applications Note detailing the use of its ARINC 600 next generation connector inserts for aircraft flight control avionics. Increased data transmission rates are required by the latest data communications and aircraft landing systems and ITT ICS engineers have met this challenge by designing a new series of robust, compact inserts to which allow signal, power, Ethernet and fibre optic data transmission functions to be combined into a single interconnect. These weight and space-saving inserts suit many aerospace applications, including instrument landing systems, GPS landing systems, flight navigation systems, avionic common data network systems, integrated surveillance systems and backbone Ethernet network modules. Three new interconnect inserts have been developed – 30Q2, 13Q2 and 17Q2 – which can all also be combined with existing signal, power and quadrax inserts to develop an infinite combination of connector layouts which will meet fu­ture bandwidth requirements. The 30Q2 model features 28 signal contacts and 2 quadrax contacts in a single size 1 insert and is available in standard rear release, rear removable pin and socket versions and also a front release, front removable socket option.
