A thumbnail of a Octax concept option.

Key Characteristics

Our Octax® connectors are much smaller and lighter than the competive products, yet possess extremely low losses in terms of crosstalk, return loss and insertion loss which utlimately provides superior data transmission speeds. In addition, our Octax connectors have been innovatively designed to potentially be fitted to multiple industry standard configurations, housings and platforms. Contact us for possible design applications to suit your needs. This allows a high degree of flexibility of options to suit various system design applications. The High Speed Data Octax Connectors are capable of delivering data transfer speed of 10 gbits/sec or higher. The connectors have excellent corrosion resistance, shell to shell connectivity, EMI shielding and are optimized for 1G and 10G applications. These connectors have a unique contact retaining mechanism for ease of manufacturing and field rework. They are compact, light weight, blind-matable and scoop-proof. All Octax connectors are environmentally sealed and ROHS compliant.
