September 23, 2011 - Available to EN3645, EN3646, ARINC 600, and EN2997 standards, No. 8 Quadrax Contacts are suitable for majority of aeronautics connectors. Quadrax connectors can use either 100BaseT protocol over 1 quadrax cable, reaching throughputs of 100 Mbps, or Ethernet 1000BaseTX, which allows transmission up to 1 Gbps over 2 quadrax cables. Contacts offer secure data transmission over 500 mating operations with ability to withstand shock and vibration.

Press release date: September 15, 2011

Souriau has developed and released gauge #8 quadrax contacts which have demonstrated in an operational environment that they are compatible with communication protocols requiring up to category 6. These protocols include those for the flagship quadrax application which is, of course, Ethernet in harsh operating environments.

For Ethernet, Souriau´s quadrax connectors can use either the 100BaseT protocol over one quadrax cable, reaching throughputs of 100 Mbit/s, or Ethernet 1000BaseTX, which can allow transmission of up to 1 Gbit/s over two quadrax cables.

Souriau´s quadrax range is available to EN3645, EN3646, ARINC 600 and EN2997 standards, so that Ethernet protocols can be used in the majority of approved and proven aeronautics connectors.

The (patented) design of Souriau´s gauge #8 quadrax contacts ensures easier, repeatable cabling. This guarantees the overall transmission quality, providing the best possible throughput. In addition, these contacts are robust enough to offer secure data transmission over 500 mating operations, with the added ability to handle shocks and vibrations.

Applicable to the vast majority of our inserts with gauge #8 cavities, Souriau´s quadrax contacts allow unrivalled flexibility for harsh-environment applications which are increasingly resorting to Ethernet for their transmission protocol.
