Electrical Options

The upcoming release of the LAC or LRU Active Cable offers design engineers the an extremely flexible interface to optical transceivers. The PCB flex cable can be configured with just about any style of high quality electrical connector. We offer it standard with the Molex SlimstackTM, but it could have the TE FinestackTM or Samtec’s RazorTM, or even an FCI connector. This flexibility enables the LAC to adapt to the requirements of the LRU: thru-hole, surface mount, or pluggable. The length of the flex can vary and be routed in the LRU to mount the LAC on the box wall or in a fiber tray. Contact COTSWORKS for solid models, datasheets, and test and qualification information.
