Solution Times: Connectors for Cables That Move

March 2, 2022

Twist and Rotate

High performance cables routed across opening doors and panels, folding structures on aircraft wingtips, helicopter tail booms, and ship radars require a specialty connector that can withstand constant motion. Our Rotating Coaxial Connector— a continuously rotating 360° connector capable of operating broadband from DC-18 GHz—is the right choice.

We designed our Rotating Coaxial Connectors with rugged materials using corrosion-resistant stainless steel, titanium, gold plated beryllium copper, and phosphor bronze. Built to withstand harsh environments, the connectors weigh only 150g, making them a light weight alternative over traditional rotating joints.

Flying on an aircraft near you and tested up to one million 360º rotation cycles, this connector is ready for the long haul or the carrier landing that a loose cable cannot survive.
