Octax®-Solo 10Gbps Ethernet Interconnect System


Ultra High-Speed Interconnect Solution

The Carlisle Interconnect Technologies Octax®-Solo 10Gbps ethernet connector is a single-port, standalone connector designed for a wide variety of aerospace and military applications.

The Octax connector:

  • Uses innovative inserts to isolate each twisted pair and contact.
  • Cable and twist is maintained extremely close to the contacts to minimize characteristic impedance mismatch.
  • Each insert serves as an isolated cell to virtually eliminate near-end crosstalk.
  • Capable of operating in data transmission speeds of 10 Gigabits/sec (Gbps) or higher.
  • Delivers 10x the transmission speed (10Gbps signal), and 2x the density compared to Quadrax type solutions.
  • The Octax standard M39029 crimp contacts reduce manufacturing installation time and provide a field repairable solution with ease.

Features & Benefits

Feature Customer Benefit
Gigabit and 10Gb Ethernet data transfer speed Allows for higher quantities of data to transfer at quicker speeds covering a variety of 1Gb
applications and emerging 10Gb needs
Field repairable Designed for easier and less costly on-site termination repair
Uses standard 22D crimp contacts (M39029) Standard off-the-shelf contacts are readily available and requires no special tooling
Small form factor Critical space savings for highly dense applications
Anti-decoupling/self-locking mechanism for
rugged environments
Connector will not disconnect/uncouple in a high vibration application
