A family of connectors that are designed specifically for use in harsh environments has been created by ITT Interconnect Solutions.
The global manufacturing company has called the range the PHD 38999 Series and they were created in response to demand for an interconnecting system that withstands a range of locations.
In particular, the firm explains that the connectors would be suitable for use in military, aerospace and tactical communications devices.
The devices feature precision alignment and superior optical performance capabilities, as well as being able to group multiple fibre optic terminations within a rugged circular connect profile.
Keith Teichmann, director of marketing for ITT Interconnect Solutions, said: "The PHD 38999 Series connectors were also designed for packaging flexibility, offering a variety of circular and rectangular MIL specification and standard connector configurations."
