Kingsport, TN, October 30, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Protokraft today announced the availability of its Cobra Series of active optoelectronic cable adapters with standard D38999 electrical connector interfaces to improve optical network performance and reliability in harsh environment applications. Protokraft Cobra series Optoelectronic Media Interface Adapters consist of optoelectronic transmitter and receiver functions integrated into an environmentally sealed unit with an D38999/26xB35PN electrical connector interface. Protokraft introduced the Cobra Series Optoelectronic Media Interface Adapters for military, petrochemical, mining, industrial or utility applications where significant levels of shock, vibration and extreme temperature ranges are experienced. These components are designed for use in harsh environments where small size, weight reduction and resistance to harsh environments are valued.
Protokraft’s new Cobra Series of Jam Nut Optoelectronic Media Interface Adapters support both Fast or Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre Channel, sFPDP, ARINC 818, ARINC 664 and many other protocols for multimode or single mode fiber optic links. All versions are fully compliant with the applicable IEEE or Mil requirements.
Data communications applications up to 3.2Gbps
Optical fiber link distances up to 10.0 Kilometers
Operating temperature range from -55°C to +85°C
Shock, vibration and ESD resistant per Mil-Std-810
Options for zinc-nickel, olive drab cadmium or electroless nickel plating
Aluminum alloy backshell and connectors are strong, durable and corrosion resistant
D38999/26xB35PN standard electrical connector interface
The Cobra Series Optoelectronic Media Interface Adapter transmitters are high performance 1310nm FP Lasers or 850nm VCSEL's. The optical receivers consist of GaAs or InGaAs PIN and preamplifier assemblies and limiting post-amplifiers. The electrical interface to the Cobra series Optoelectronic Media Interface Adapters is a D38999/26xB35PN electrical connector enabling interconnection to high speed electrical communication ports in harsh environment applications.
Designed to operate in harsh environments, these optoelectronic media interface adapters feature excellent thermal characteristics, high tolerance to vibration and shock and corrosion resistant aluminum housings for exceptional EMI/RFI performance. Standard case operating temperature range is -40°C to +85°C, with a standard storage temperature range of -55°C to +100°C. The Cobra Series Optoelectronic Media Interface Adapters operate at link distances up to 10.0 Kilometers. All operate from +3.3VDC power supplies.
Protokraft's Cobra Series Optoelectronic Media Interface Adapters are competitively priced compared to the typical pricing for discrete fiber optic cable assemblies designed for similar harsh environments. Small quantities are available now, with production quantities of all versions available during Q’1-2011.
