The ARINC 801 cylindrical fiber optic connector suite is suitable for aerospace and military applications. It is available in standard D38999 plug and receptacle shells and inserts are available to support 2 to 32 channels. Both PC and APC are supported.
Amphenol FSI also offers the companion ARINC 801 terminus, which uses a standard 1.25mm ferrule and sleeve that can be terminated with standard LC termination procedures. The terminus can be inserted and removed from the connector with a standard size 16 contact removal tool. The terminus is available in both multimode and single mode versions. The fiber optic contact provides low insertion loss (0.3dB max, multimode) and back reflection (-55dB, APC). All versions of the termini are available in non-pull proof (for tight structure FO cables) and pull-proof (loose structure FO cable construction) variations.
