ARINC 801

Fiber Optic Terminus

The ARINC 801 fiber optic terminus is the next generation of high density, butt joint interconnect technology. With its standard 1.25 mm ferrule and sleeve, the ARINC 801 terminus is designed for both multimode and single-mode applications.

Features & Benefits

The ARINC 801 fiber optic terminus is the next generation of butt-joint interconnect technology allowing for higher density multichannel connectors to be achieved. With its standard 1.25 mm ferrule and sleeve, the ARINC 801 terminus is designed for  both multi-mode and single-mode applications and is compatible  with standard LC termination processes. The terminus is available both as a pull-proof design and a general use design for tight jacketed cable.

For the pull-proof design, the cable jacket is crimped on an external body and a floating mechanism avoids any loss of performance when pulling on the cable. This feature allows for the use of the connector without a backshell. Standard connector formats include MIL-DTL-38999 type, MIL-DTL-83527 type, ARINC 600 and ARINC 781.

Other benefits include:

  • Low loss, low back reflection
  • General use design (no strain relief backshell needed)
  • Optical disconnect style availableStandard 1.25 mm ferrule and sleeve
  • Cable termination identical to LC connector process
  • Easy cleaning access to the contact throughRemovable alignment sleeve holder
  • Standard MIL-DTL-38999 and ARINC 600 Size 16 insertion/removal tool
  • Shell Material: Plastic, Metal, Aluminum, Alloy
