Quadrax Contacts, Connectors and Cables
Multi-signal contact systems for high speed applications
Versatile Pin and Socket Multi-Signal Contact Systems. TE offers the highly versatile Quadrax multi-signal contact system consisting of two differential pairs (matched impedence) used with quadraxial Ethernet and Fibre Channel cables. Quadrax contacts are available in shell size 8 (keyed), 24 AWG pin and socket contacts, hex crimp, and pin PCB tail solderable versions. They are adaptable to a variety of connectors, including ARINC 600, 404, D-Subminiature and MIL-DTL-38999, and are designed for use in high-speed applications such as Gigabit Ethernet, IEEE 802.3Z and Fibre Channel X3T11.
