TE Connectivity says ultra-installable FullAXS Mini connectors target harsh OSP, wireless, industrial applications

Oct. 3, 2016
TE says its new FullAXS Mini connectors comprise of the easiest connector sealing systems to install in rugged outdoor environments.

TE Connectivity (TE), a global specialist in connectivity and sensor technology, has introduced its FullAXS Mini connectors, billed as "one of the easiest connector sealing systems to install in rugged outdoor environments." The company contends that the FullAXS Mini connector sealing system "is one of the only products available that enables one-handed, blind installs from many angles. With 3-sense (visual, audio and tangible) locking feedback, floating connections and a twist angle of only 30 degrees, these products can be installed by field engineers of all levels of experience in virtually any location," adds a product press release.

"Space on wireless and other outdoor rugged applications is at a premium, and engineers are designing smaller boxes as a result," continues the release. "Smaller boxes necessitate using connectors wherever possible. TE’s FullAXS Mini connectors deliver the small size and scalability to design-in power and signal connectivity where needed. The new connectors are 23 percent smaller than TE’s current FullAXS products and can be placed almost anywhere on the box due to their flexible sealing system. The FullAXS Mini connector sealing delivers a watertight seal up to IP67 and IP65 levels, uses UV material to meet F1 rating UL 94-V0 and withstands all applicable lightning strike requirements, making them ideal for many harsh outdoor environments, including wireless and microwave equipment, industrial, robotic, and aerospace and defense applications."

“Outdoor wireless and industrial equipment is getting smaller while needing to deliver more functionality, and connectors on that equipment must be smaller and more versatile,” says Stefan Borgas, manager, product management, TE’s Data and Devices business unit. “TE’s FullAXS Mini connector sealing system delivers the small size, ease of installation, and ruggedness necessary for today’s wireless and industrial equipment designs.”
