|Format||Member Price||Non-Member Price|
A fiber optic connector has been developed and tested to insure performance and reliability when used in the AN/GRC-206 military radio sets manufactured by Magnavox Corp. This paper describes the design features Cannon has implimented into the production connector, the qualification test program to simialate field conditions (including unique new tests and criteria for F.O. connectors) and the optical production acceptance cable testing which simulates and predicts connector performance in the field. Test data is presented along with pictures of test set-ups and equipment.
