CDM Electronics has announced the availability of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) and custom fibre optic MIL-Spec, harsh environment, mode conditioning and reference grade jumper cables.

These multimode and single-mode fibre optic cable assembly solutions target the broadest spectrum of industrial, military, plus avionics applications. Three-dimensional computer aided design, manufacturing, and engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE) software is employed to ensure the integrity of assemblies’ performance, speed time to market, and minimise costs.

MIL-spec assemblies are comprised of qualified product list wire and cable and manufactured in an AS9100 certified facility.

Indoor, outdoor, and indoor-outdoor fibre optic cable assemblies incorporate optical fibre, a reinforcement strand for support, and fibre optic connectors. Unlike copper wires which rely on electrical pulses to transmit data, fibre optic cables utilise light pulses to consistently deliver faster, more reliable data. Their optimised transmission integrity makes them a suitable choice for the full range of mission-critical voice and data systems including Telecom (microwave, dish antenna, and 5G small-cell), SATCOM, in-building DAS, WiFi, along with SCADA networks. Fibre optic interconnects are also suited for installation in broadcast facilities and network operations, GPS, precision timing designs as well as emergent communications technologies.

CDM provides fibre optic assemblies manufactured in an approved MIL-STD-790 facility, qualified to MIL-PRF-85045/8A (US DOD), plus A3159879 (US Army CECOM) standards. Connectivity options comprise TFOCA-I, II, III, M28876, M38999, and ARINC 801. Expanded beam, plug adapter, along with hybrid connectors are available. Assemblies for harsh environments rated to IP67/68, employingFTTx broadband technology, as well as MTP/MPO to LC/SC and custom fanouts are offered. Mode conditioning cables compatible with the IEEE 802.3z 1000BASE-SX standard, rated to 62.5um or 50um, are provided with OM3 or OM4 fibre optic cables. Reference-grade simplex and duplex jumper cables may be specified with OM, SM, PM, ST, SC, FC, LT, MPT or E2000 fiber. Optical node and distribution cables, payout reels, and splitters are also available.
