Amphenol Aerospace Operations (AAO) High Speed Solutions (HSS) Division Offers Rugged Copper to Fiber (CTF) Media Converter Products

Amphenol now offers rugged CTF media converters from DC to 10Gbps supporting multiple protocols for the military, aerospace and industrial markets.

SIDNEY, N.Y., Jan. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Amphenol Aerospace (NYSE: APH), a global leader in interconnect technologies, now offers additional Copper to Fiber Media Converter products.  These assemblies are designed for military and aerospace environments.

AAO HSS has provided rugged high speed copper and fiber optic interconnect products for the military, aerospace, and industrial markets for decades.  Such products include: fiber and high speed copper contacts, connectors, and cable solutions.  Amphenol CTF media converter products blend the decades of experience in fiber optic and high speed copper capability with a new set of products that removes the need to convert from copper to fiber inside a given sub-system.  The media conversion is completed within each turn-key unit that AAO HSS provides.  This allows systems integrators to remove costly and fragile fiber transceivers and cables from circuit boards.

Jared Sibrava, Director of Amphenol Aerospace's High Speed Solutions Division says, "The CTF product line of media converters is a natural fit for Amphenol as we blend two tried and true capabilities together and establish a strong presence in emerging technologies for new platforms as well as upgrades to legacy systems."

Along with the standard off-the-shelf products as listed above, AAO HSS is customizing these offerings to meet unique needs from the market.  Furthermore, many new additions to the CTF product line are underway.
