ITT - Custom connector for aircraft in-flight entertainment system

IFE Arinc 600 detailed in new application note
ITT - Custom connector for aircraft in-flight entertainment system
Leading hi-rel connector company, ITT Interconnect Solutions has provided one of its aviation customers with a fully-integrated turn-key solution for an in-flight entertainment system (IFE) used in commercial aircraft. ITT met the double challenge of manufacturing a custom ARINC 600 connector to stringent technical specifications with the additional requirement of achieving a commercially cost-effective design in an aggressive market.

ITT Interconnect Solutions ensured that both its own customer and the eventual end customer, the aircraft integrator, had an integrated and cost-effective solution by offering a competitive “mutual programme” price for both the LRU connector and the aircraft-side mounting tray connectors needed by the aircraft integrator. No additional assembly drawings or instructions were needed by their customer as the ARINC 600 custom connector had a single part number, a very major benefit as the data package and configuration for the 4MCU ARINC 600 are controlled by the FAA.

The ARINC 600 enclosure required a customized connector body and insert to reduce EMI/RFI emissions; the ability to handle high speed/gigabit Ethernet signalling and design features to minimise connector handling and chassis assembly time. ITT Interconnect Solution’s engineers devised an ingenious solution which included a custom size 2 shell machined to reduce EMI/RFI emissions and ITT Quadrax contacts for gigabit Ethernet channels. Incorporating custom insert arrangements eliminated unused positions and pre-loaded inserts with extended tail contacts achieved faster PCB mounting. The polarizing keys were pre-loaded and fixed PEM® nuts were used to ensure there was no loose hardware on installation.
