38999 ELIO Fibre Optic Connectors

We are very happy to announce that we can now offer an extremely quick turnaround service for standard and custom 38999-based fibre optic cable assemblies.

Designed around the industry leading Souriau “Elio” high-performance fibre optic system, we can offer patch cords and jump leads as well as customer specific FO assemblies on surprisingly short lead times. Applications can include aerospace and military systems as well as those where high data rates are important, while at the same time providing high resistance to difficult environments.

The Souriau Elio system features an impressive optical performance making it capable of dealing with data speeds up to several Gbit/s.

Our fibre optic assembly service offers simplex or duplex cables terminated with Elio to Elio, Elio to LC or SC contacts - or any combination. These are then mated with 8D Series / MIL-DTL-38999 style electrical connectors, back shells and heat shrink boots.

We can supply these 8D Series / MIL-DTL-38999 connector platforms with 1 to 24 contacts in aluminium, composite, stainless steel & bronze shells. Plating finishes include RoHS Compliant Zinc Nickel & Zinc Cobalt.
