The Lightly™ terminus enhances the Commercial Aerospace de facto standard ARINC 801 terminus by incorporating the insertion/removal tool in the rear termini around the crimp. Lightly ™ can be installed with one hand on the cable and termini body into an ARINC 801 receptacle such as COTSWORKS’ RCP transceiver. Lightly™ was designed to eliminate the need for the M81969/1-03 tool, improving re-work time, testing time, and eliminating the potential for FOD from discarded or lost equipment.
