SOURIAU ELIO MIL-DTL-38999 – Fiber-Optic High-Speed Connectors

The ELIO connector range is the favorite Airbus fiber optics termini for A350, A380, A330, A400M programs. Mass-production scale of ELIO makes it the sustainable optical solution for aerospace, space, defense, marine and industrial market.

The flight proven ELIO fiber optics termini are designed around a robust 2.5mm ceramic ferrule. The assembly is as easy an ST connector. The insertion and retention inside the connector is ensured by a bayonet locking mechanism without any special tool. The termini integrates a seal inside the rear boot, thus the connection is sealed from the rear side without a backshell or a grommet. The 8D ELIO range covers layout from 1 to 24 ways in all type of material shell.

Each cavity can be upgraded with the brand-new ELIOBEAM expanded beam ELIO version. In the female insert, the termini are flushed to the insert surface, thus making easy the fiber optical end-face inspection and cleaning, compared to the traditional dust collecting socket design.

The same termini part number can adapt tight or loose structure cable.
