Multimode multi-fiber bundleSQS developed a special multi-fiber bundle made of 62 multimode step index profile fibers. The output ends of the fibers are terminated in a special designed fiber array, where the individual fibers are positioned at different substrate depths according to a predefined radius. The input ends are terminated in two SMA connectors, in that each of them contains ferrule with a special 2D flower pattern positions for 31 fibers. At the same time we are able to provide for, as per customer’s request, arbitrary predefined fiber connecting pattern between input and output interfaces. Moreover, fiber array could be housed in by us manufactured “customized” flange and fiber bundles placed in protective tubing.

We are also capable to anti-reflection coat fibers’ end faces in SMA connectors.

Design of this presented solution can be, upon consultation with SQS, modified as per customer’s requirements.

Arinc Standardized Modular SystemSQS developed and implemented Lever ASsisted INserting (LASIN) Locking mechanism for housing-rack modules with optical as well as electrical contacts according to aeronautical industry standard ARINC. The lever of this LASIN lock mechanism, under correct handling, provides for controlled three axial insertion of housings into racks while eliminating human factor error in contacts' creation.
In the case of incorrect handling, i.e. excessive force on the lever after contacts' creation, the design of the locking mechanism ensures that, in the case of damage, that damage will occur on the front more visible part of the rack.
Housings and racks of 5 different sizes can be arbitrarily connected among themselves and then as one unit attached to a frame of carrying vehicle.
