  • Harsh Environment Hermaphroditic Fiber Optic Connectors

  • Delphi Connection Systems, formerly Packard-Hughes Interconnect, develops, engineers and manufactures hermaphroditic fiber optic connectors that meet the demands of harsh environment applications.

    Delphi’s hermaphroditic connectors provide superior, consistent optical performances when deployed in the harshest environments. The connectors allow concatenations of cable assemblies to extend equipment separation without concern for connector male/female interface compatibility. Additionally, these connectors have “blind mating” and "scoop proofing" features to provide easy-to-mate interconnects.

  • * Please refer to Delphi’s Fiber Optic Termini MIL-T-29504 and Commercial Equivalent catalog.

    “Fiber Optic Contacts”

    Benefits/Features: ■ Available in 4, 6, and 12 channel configurations ■ 4 channel connector complies to SMPTE Standard

    358M-2001 for the broadcast industry ■ Singlemode and multimode capabilities ■ Plug-to-plug in-line cable linking system ■ Full environmental sealing ■ Waterproof ■ Field maintainable ■ Jam nut receptacle ■ Utilizes field proven Delphi termini*

    The hermaphroditic connectors are designed for military markets, but also are configured to meet commercial market specifications and price competitive requirements.

    Military applications include pierside and tactical field use. Commercial applications for the 4, 6 and 12 channel connectors include broadcast equipment used in sporting events such as the Olympics, auto racing and the Super Bowl. They are also integrated into news media centers at the White House, international airports, and sports stadiums.

    Typical Applications: ■ Tactical field usage ■ Broadcast ■ Military pierside ■ Geophysical exploration

    - Oil exploration - Mining

    ■ Mobile and field deployment ■ Telecommunications

    - Wireless base stations

    Harsh Environment Hermaphroditic Product Attributes Characteristics Hermaphroditic connectors are “genderless” and designed to allow intermating of "like connectors" used on cable assemblies. This is achieved by converting one of the cable plug connectors to a male connector configuration by backing off the coupling nut to expose its male threaded end and bringing the other connector's (female configuration) coupling nut forward to thread onto the exposed male threads. This allows the cable assemblies to be deployed without concern for having a male or female connector at the end of the cable.

    Another benefit of the hermaphroditic connector design is that it allows identical cable assemblies to be concatenated as many times as needed (to be limited only by the system's optical loss budget). This provides flexibility in the placement of the end terminals. A simple but unique wiring arrangement must be observed when cable concatenation is used.

    Special features such as EMI/RFI shielding may also be accommodated. Contact Delphi for more information regarding these features.

    Blind Mate and Scoop Proof Design Features Due to application requirements, hermaphroditic connectors are often mated under adverse conditions characterized by minimal lighting and limited access. In these situations, "blind mating" and "scoop proofing" features are critical to provide repeatability, reliability and ease of connection without sacrificing time or imparting damage onto the connector and termini through improper mating. These features help enable successful field application.

    Typical Field Usage Design Features Field use connectors must withstand adverse conditions that are beyond the environmental applications typically endured by connectors and cable assemblies. Delphi’s hermaphroditic connectors have been designed to withstand crush, cable tensile pull-out, cable twist, external bending moment, impact, freezing water, and many other harsh field application conditions. Additional damaging conditions include driving over the connectors with wheeled and tracked vehicles, using the connectors that protrude from shelters or panels as foot or hand holds, or applying the connectors to wet conditions, such as freezing or saltwater.
