Cinch Connectivity Solutions, a Bel group company, has launched the MIL-STD-1553B twinax cable assembly expansion, incorporating RoHS compliant and metric fixed-length assemblies.

These twinax cable assemblies are provided with on-the-shelf fixed-length cable assemblies to ease fulfilment of customer needs. The assemblies are constructed using Trompeter TWC-78-1, TWC-78-2, and M17/176-00002 cable types. Assemblies are terminated with Trompeter PL75, 3 slot connectors (the most common connector employed in MIL-STD-1553B systems).

This product release is a follow-up to the initial offering centred around the M17/176-0002 cable regularly used in MIL-STD-1553B systems. These new cable assemblies also complement the recently announced Trompeter MIL-STD-1553B Bus Coupler family. Bus couplers with one to eight stubs were released last year and are offered in lead and lead-free versions.
