XiOptics 29504/5 Style 1 Optical Terminus


XiOptics leads the world in developing and deploying advanced fiber optic interconnect solutions. With the worlds first Type 2 Mil-T-29504 optical terminus solution for Mil-C-38999 XiOptics offers cable solution providers the most cost effective and easiest to terminate fiber optic terminus system available.

Features and Benefits:
  • Type 1 fiber retention system uses adhesive lined Kynar tubing to securely capture fiber jacketing.
  • Suitable for multi-mode and single-mode applications. PC or UPC end face geometry capable.
  • Precision xirconia ceramic ferrule with .5 micron concentricity delivers superior single mode insertion loss performance by reducing concentricity errors.
  • All stainless steel main body construction removes the problems with plating flaking creating optical interface contamination or corrosion cell formation.
  • Extended press fit area between body and ceramic ferrule ensures performance across all environments.
  • Retained sleeve hood design attached with simple threaded interface.
  • COTS (commercial off the shelf) version available
  • Extended bonding cup engages connector rear seal forming a precision seal that is not dependent on plastic optical fiber jacketing.
