for high-speed data transmission in commercial, military, aerospace, and
shipboard applications. The ARINC 801 Fiber-Optic Connector Series from
Cannon operates at 10-Gbps and higher speeds.

makes this high-bandwidth interconnect solution
a perfect fit for in-flight entertainment and connectivity, commercial and
military avionics, ground-based communications, and shipboard navigation.


The scoop-proof
connector design provides alternative keying position and end finishes for both
single-mode and multi-mode fiber configurations. Cannon also provides
termini in pull-proof and non-pull-proof types, which lead to a lower loss and
a genderless solution for plug and receptacle applications.

and convenient field cleaning, the alignment sleeve is made removable. Cannon’s
size #16 termini are fully compliant with ARINC 801 requirements. Besides
