Amphenol Fiber Systems International (AFSI) offers rugged military fiber optic ST connectors for deployable and fixed communication system requirements. AFSI’s connectors are designed to provide the best possible optical performance in applications with severe environmental conditions.
Various versions of connectors and adapters are available to meet a broad range of specific needs and system requirements. The M83522 connector is qualified for military applications and features a higher spring force than commercial ST connectors, allowing it to meet the shock requirements of MIL-DTL-83522.
Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) ST connectors provide the same robustness with a spring force more consistent with commercial ST connectors, enabling them to connect effectively with other ST connectors and ancillary electronics.
