Interstate Connecting Components, a division of Heilind Mil-Aero and leading distributor of military-aerospace connectors and accessories, is now offering M28876 circular fiber optic connectors with black hard anodized (BHA) PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) plating. The connectors are precision-engineered by Amphenol Fiber Systems International, a leading manufacturer of fiber optic connectivity products.
The BHA PFTE-plated connectors are qualified to MIL-PRF-28876, Revision F, which supersedes the Revision E specification for olive drab cadmium plating. Because it is very hard and nearly chemically inert, the BHA plating is impervious to many corrosive compounds. This makes the connectors an ideal choice for applications like navy shipboards, oil and gas, mission-critical combat and communication systems, mobile tactical shelters and harsh industry.
While ICC is now providing value-added assembly on the new BHA-plated connectors, customers will still be able to order the older olive-drab plated connectors in commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) versions.
Amphenol Fiber Systems’ M28876 connectors operate with all qualified single mode and multimode M29504/14 and /15 termini. Backshells are available in straight, 45-degree and 90-degree configurations and utilize the manufacturer’s proprietary Quickloc captivation system.
