Octax®-Solo 10 Gbps Ethernet Interconnect System

Main: Octax®-Solo plug and flange-mount receptacle connectors. Inset: Octax®-Solo flange-mount straight PC tail receptacle.

Ultra High-Speed Interconnect Solution

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

The Octax connector:

  • Uses innovative inserts that isolate each twisted pair and contact, virtually eliminating near-end crosstalk

  • Features cable and twists that are maintained extremely close to the contacts, minimizing characteristic impedance mismatch

  • Delivers 10x the transmission speed (10 Gbps signal) and 2x the density compared to Quadrax-type solutions

Features & Benefits

Feature Benefit
Gigabit and 10 Gb Ethernet data transfer speed Allows for higher data quantities to transfer at quicker speeds covering a variety of 1 Gb
applications and emerging 10 Gb 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

Suggested Applications

  • Single-Port 10 Gbps Ethernet connector (compatible with CarlisleIT Gigabit Series Ethernet Cables)
    • Aerospace and military
    • Avionics
