  • Des séries complètes de connecteurs sont proposées avec l'utilisation de la technologie Quadsplitter avec les séries Mil-DTL-38999
  • Allie l'intégrité du signal des câbles Twinax et la densité de connexion des contacts Quadrax, en insérant deux câbles Twinax AWG 26 dans un contact Quadrax taille 8 standard
  • Le câble de charge a la même taille et le même poids qu'un câble de charge Quadrax 24 AWG et il offre la même souplesse et la même facilité d'utilisation

Quadrax is a system where four conductors are located within a single conducting enclosure. The connection to two separate twinax cables is accomplished without disturbing the differential or signal-to-shield impedances values. A complete series of connectors are available utilizing the Quadsplitter technology with MIL-DTL-38999 Series III connector types available in shell size 11 and shell size 25 housings. Designed to ground the outer shield of a twinax or quadrax contact directly to the shell of the connector. 

In-Line Quadsplitter offers another solution for extending the distance that High Speed signals can be sent over a Quadrax architecture. We can combine the signal integrity of Twinax cables and the connection density of Quadrax contacts, by incorporating two 26 AWG Twinax cables into a standard Size 8 Quadrax contact. The resulting cable assembly is about the same size and weight as a 24 AWG Quadrax cable assembly and offers the same flexibility and ease of use. 

The In-Line Quadsplitter can be used alone or in conjunction with the In-Line Equalizer. Many customers prefer the connection density and ease of use of Quadrax cables and connectors.
