High Density, High Performance Optical Fiber Interconnect System is Flexible, Scalable and Easy to Maintain



SANTA ANA, Calif. - March 13, 2006 - ITT's new Cannon PHD line of optical interconnects delivers high performance, high density, and ease of maintenance. In addition, ITT's fiber optic connector system is flexible and scaleable.

Based on an industry-standard 1.25mm ceramic ferrule, the Cannon PHD system enables a higher density optical system than traditional SC, ST or MC ferrule technologies. Further, the Cannon PHD optical core connector bodies and structured cable systems have been engineered to support mission-critical applications within data-carrying networks. The design is highly robust and minimizes the potential for operator error, further simplifying field service and repair.

The Cannon PHD system guarantees the industry's highest and most stable performance for multi-channel interconnects and delivers reduced insertion loss, less channel-to-channel variance, and higher return loss. The product's end face is GR-326 compliant.

Specific systems may be identified for panel mounting, use on backplanes and rack and panel designs, interface with the standard MIL-C-38999 footprint, or applications that require exposure to outdoor and factory environments where commodity fiber optic products prove unsuitable. Focused market sectors include telecommunications, automotive systems, commercial aircraft, data-communications, industrial applications, medical products, and military applications.
