MIL-DTL-38999 for LuxCis® (ARINC 801) contacts – MIL-DTL-38999 circular connectors are specifically designed for LuxCis® contacts, as described in the ARINC 801 standard for aerospace fiber optic interconnect assemblies. Available in multimode and singlemode PC & APC configurations.
MIL-PRF-29504 type contacts – (F722/F724) These contacts (termini) are designed per MIL-PRF-29504 for military and aerospace applications. Specific part numbers must be ordered to fit a specific circular or rectangular connector. Available in size 16 or size 12. MIL-PRF-29504 fibre optic termini were developed several decades ago and are described in several MIL standard documents. They have been designed to fit into standard electrical cavities within circular or rectangular multipin connectors and do not require specific inserts. However, standard electrical connectors are not optimised for optical connection with small core fibres and MIL-PRF-29504 fibre optic termini show lower optical performance than more recent designs, such as the LuxCis.
