CDM Electronics Now Offers High Performance Fiber Optic Interconnect Solutions

Fiber Optic Cable Assemblies and Harnesses Engineered for Mission-Critical Indoor, Outdoor and Indoor-Outdoor Applications

Turnersville, NJ, April 18, 2022…CDM Electronics, a premier authorized distributor of electronic connectors and cables, today announced the availability of Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) and custom fiber optic MIL-Spec, harsh environment, mode conditioning and reference grade jumper cables.  These multimode and single-mode fiber optic cable assembly solutions target the broadest spectrum of industrial, military, plus avionics applications. Three-dimensional computer aided design, manufacturing, and engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE) software is employed to ensure the integrity of assemblies’ performance, speed time to market, and minimize costsMIL-spec assemblies are comprised of QPL (Qualified Product List) wire and cable and manufactured in an AS9100 certified facility.

Indoor, outdoor, and indoor-outdoor fiber optic cable assemblies incorporate optical fiber, a reinforcement strand for support, and fiber optic connectors. Unlike copper wires which rely on electrical pulses to transmit data, fiber optic cables utilize light pulses to consistently deliver faster, more reliable data. Their optimized transmission integrity makes them the ideal choice for the full range of mission-critical voice and data systems including Telecom (microwave, dish antenna, and 5G small-cell), SATCOM, in-building DAS, WiFi, along with SCADA networks. Fiber optic interconnects are also suited for installation in broadcast facilities and network operations, GPS, precision timing designs as well as emergent communications technologies.

CDM provides fiber optic assemblies manufactured in an approved MILSTD790 facility, qualified to MIL-PRF-85045/8A (US DOD), plus A3159879 (US Army CECOM) standards. Connectivity options comprise TFOCA-I, II, III, M28876, M38999, and ARINC 801. Expanded beam, plug adapter, along with hybrid connectors are available. Assemblies for harsh environments rated to IP67/68, employing FTTx broadband technology, as well as MTP/MPO to LC/SC and custom fanouts are offered. Mode conditioning cables compatible with the IEEE 802.3z 1000BASE-SX standard, rated to 62.5 um or 50 um, are provided with OM3 or OM4 fiber optic cables. Reference-grade simplex and duplex jumper cables may be specified with OM, SM, PM, ST, SC, FC, LT, MPT or E2000 fiber. Optical node and distribution cables, payout reels, and splitters are also available.

High Voltage Charging Solution for Energy Storage & Backup Systems

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Analog Devices

Today there is growing demand for energy storage with more power, longer range, and longer run time. But the question remains: how can we increase our energy storage given the energy storage mediums on the market today? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Anthony Huyhn from Analog Devices about the benefits of high voltage energy storage, why stacked battery cells are crucial to these kinds of systems, how high voltage energy storage systems can reduce conduction loss exponentially and what kind of high voltage charging solutions from Analog Devices are on the market today.
