We provide solutions across a wide range or markets.
Designed to secure signal transmissions in the sensitive area located between coaches of all types of rail vehicles, from high speed trains to metros and trams.
The F series is equipped with modular inserts offering a combination of fibre optics, high speed Ethernet twinax or quadrax, power and standard hyperboloid signal contacts. The connector's ruggedized aluminium shell guarantees an excellent resistance to the high levels of shocks and vibrations on-board rail vehicles. It also meets the requirements of harsh environments in terms of corrosion resistance (500 hours minimum) and sealing (IP66 according to CEI60529).
Specifically designed for the compact size and the advanced technical features of the rail Eurobalise system. The BOA connector ensures reliable signal integrity and perfect transmission of data between the rail track and the train borne equipment, which is key for the performance of the Eurobalise system. The vibration tests are compliant to IS-402 and the connector complies to VG95234, MIL-C-5015, and MIL-C-26482 normative.
Micro quadrax/twinax connectors are available in threaded, quick disconnect, SMA and Micro-D size packages, 25% smaller in diameter than SMA coaxial connectors, controlled impedance with tightly spaced PCB footprint.
High impedance D-Sub connectors are designed to ground the outer shield of a twinax or quadrax contact directly to the shell of the connector. A multi-finger ground spring fixed around the shell provides a multi-point contact engagement that affords superior EMI shielding. The end result is an extremely low contact resistance when measured from the contact outer body to the connector flange, ensuring minimal RF noise and high durability of over 500 mating cycles.
Offering data rates exceeding 2 Gbps and bandwidth up to 3 Ghz. The connectors can be driven via matched impedance differential pair interconnections for board to board high speed data transfer and are ideal for reliable, high-speed transfer of digital audio / video signals.
The modular design of the H Series allows custom configurations from standard off-the-shelf components without the cost and lead-time of custom tooling. The H Series offer a variety of designs to meet specific customer needs for extreme high density signal, power, and coaxial interconnect solutions.
C Series, featuring Hypertac Hyperboloid technology, is an IP67 circular connector with an EMC metal housing. The C Series connectors have a compact size and feature gold plated contacts. They provide superior resistance to high levels of shock and vibration in rail and industrial applications.
Heavy duty, modular, rectangular HyperMod Series is available with a variety of contacts, special shells for harsh environments and special high creepage/clearance modules. The series conforms to DIN 43652 standards and is NF F61-030 railways approved.
REP series is easy to use for quick mating. The REP panel and cable connectors are a highly cost-effective interconnect system, which solves the constant need for simple and reliable connector solutions in rail applications. A full plastic solution offered in either wire attachment or PCB mounting options to provide rapid assembly installation without requiring additional mounting hardware. Cable receptacle connectors are available to mate with the cable plug connectors for cable-to- cable solutions when needed. The series is qualified to French and European rail standards. The connectors are available as one overmolded plastic part to save assembly time.
B Series incorporates the highly reliability Hypertac® hyperboloid contact which provides optimum performance in harsh conditions such as extreme mechanical shock and high mating cycles.
