BIRNS now offering two optical ferrule sizes for ultra high density connector configurations

BIRNS, Inc. has added a new 1.25mm optical ferrule for its BIRNS Millennium connector series—a high performance, high density dry-mate connector range suitable for applications to 6km depth. The series can be used with molded or oil-filled cables in straight or 90° configurations and is available in high and low voltage, coax, fiber-optic, and hybrids of electro-coax, electro-optical and electro-opto-mechanical formats.
The 1.25mm ferrule provides single-mode and multi-mode options with low insertion losses for subsea applications in extremely high density pin configurations, while affording superior new exclusive precision alignment capabilities. The new ferrule is available in addition to the existing 2.5mm ferrule offered in the series, with both made of ceramic zirconia. 
“With the enormous increase in high density connector hybrid configurations from both our military and commercial customers, we are happy to offer yet another high performance option for including the maximum number of contacts in a miniature, deep submergence connector,” said Eric Birns, President and CEO.
