c-enx™ EN 4644 Modular Rectangular Connectors

The c-enx™ series offers a wide range of solutions based on two insert sizes with a large variety of shells and contacts. The series is standardized by the EN 4644 European Standard. Available with Cinch EBOSA™ Expanded Beam Technology, expands and collimates the optical beam up to 2000 times the original beam size making airborne dirt nearly benign to beam continuity and integrity. Our patented active alignment technology aligns a standard LC ferrule to Cinch’s EBOSA™ with ultra-high precision. This results in insertion loss and reflectance performance that can exceed the specification for customer specific applications for expanded beam connectors

Specifications

  • Slim, completely modular and expandable
  • Shell design with high contact density
  • Stackable shells do not require additional space for locking and unlocking connectors
  • Available in aluminum, stainless steel or composite materials

c-enx™ Disconnect 

c-enx™ connectors (c-enxa, c-enxb1 and c-enxb2) are specially designed to be used in cable-cable disconnect applications and PCB-cable disconnect applications.

  • Modular series allows configuration with higher performances (environmental, grounding blocks, shell mountings, etc.)
  • Several accessories offer possibility to create harnesses
  • Locking system is located on the connector itself

c-enx™ Rack and Panel

The c-enx™ rack and panel connectors are intended for blind mate applications. The plug connector is designed to be used in a Line Replaceable Module (LRM) while the receptacle is installed on the aircraft rack.

  • Wide range of connectors (c-enxb2, c-enxb3 and c-enxb4) based on the same design utilize same accessories, polarization and mounting style
  • Reliable system: the polarization device prevents any mounting mistakes between panel, plug, and receptacle shell
  • Modular mounting: receptacles feature Arinc 600 functionality combined with space saving design with several mounting styles (fixed or float mount)
