ITT’s Cannon Brand to Showcase High-Reliability, High-Bandwidth Wireless RF Capabilities at the 2014 Farnborough Air Show

ITT Corporation (NYSE:ITT) and its Cannon brand are leading the way in the aviation industry by providing high-reliability, wireless RF transmission up to 6 GHz and maximizing connectivity inside and outside the cabin. With coming changes in the use of wireless devices, airline operators are preparing to offer services allowing passengers wireless connectivity in-flight. ITT and its Cannon brand are ready to connect those in flight to the ground below. ITT will showcase its smallest, lightest, most durable Micro-D connector at the Farnborough International Air Show being held July 14-20.

The ITT Cannon Micro Wireless Access Point High-Bandwidth RF Connector System features high-bandwidth RF technology enabling the use of flight-qualified connectors at wireless access points located inside and outside the cabin, delivering superior transmission of RF signal inside and outside an aircraft. This market-leading RF capability delivers exceptional high-bandwidth performance in a durable, rugged design that withstands high shock and vibration environments.

The new series of lightweight ITT Cannon Micro-D connectors are capable of carrying 802.11n wireless transmission frequencies in a Micro-D package that opens up a world of wireless connectivity for passengers in-flight. The ITT Cannon difference is evident in the innovative design and easy integration into small PCB and Panel I/O applications with minimal space requirements. Constructed of lightweight, glass-filled thermoset materials and manufactured with strong high-performance dielectric material, the Cannon Micro Wireless Access Point High-Bandwidth RF Connector System is engineered to stay connected and endure in the harshest shock and vibration environments.

“ITT Cannon has a long legacy as an innovation leader in the aviation industry spanning almost a century,” said Tom Cruz, vice president and general manager, aerospace and defense, with ITT’s Interconnect Solutions business. “The ITT Cannon Micro Wireless Access Point High Bandwidth RF Connector System is the latest innovation that shows how we are at the forefront of the global aviation industry – meeting the increasing needs for reliable connectivity in a robust, lightweight package.”

At Farnborough, ITT is also showcasing lightweight and robust connector technologies such as the Cannon Circular Aluminum Hermetic RF Connector. The Aluminum Hermetic series delivers a smaller, lighter connector with the same durability qualities as glass-sealed alternatives on the marketplace at a reduced cost. It features a proprietary hybrid sealing method that can withstand the harshest environments and is engineered with corrosion resistant materials that can withstand high temperatures and help keep water out, resulting in dependable performance. ITT’s comprehensive Cannon product portfolio will be on display at Farnborough in Reference Hall 4, Stand A11.
