Features & Benefits

  • Combine the signal integrity of Twinax cables and the connection density of Quadrax contacts, by incorporating two 26 AWG Twinax cables into a standard Size 8 Quadrax contact
  • Cable assembly is the same size and weight as a 24 AWG Quadrax cable assembly and offers the same flexibility and ease of use
  • Featuring Sabritec technology

Overview

Quadrax is a system where four conductors are located within a single conducting enclosure. The connection to two separate twinax cables is accomplished without disturbing the differential or signal-to-shield impedances values. A complete series of connectors are available utilizing the Quadsplitter technology with MIL-DTL-38999 Series III connector types available in shell size 11 and shell size 25 housings. Designed to ground the outer shield of a twinax or quadrax contact directly to the shell of the connector.

In-Line Quadsplitter offers another solution for extending the distance that High Speed signals can be sent over a Quadrax architecture. We can combine the signal integrity of Twinax cables and the connection density of Quadrax contacts, by incorporating two 26 AWG Twinax cables into a standard Size 8 Quadrax contact. The resulting cable assembly is about the same size and weight as a 24 AWG Quadrax cable assembly and offers the same flexibility and ease of use. The In-Line Quadsplitter can be used alone or in conjunction with the In-Line Equalizer. Many customers prefer the connection density and ease of use of Quadrax cables and connectors.
