IRVINE, Calif. -- March 21, 2013

Sabritec, a Smiths Connectors brand and custom connecting devices
manufacturer, announced today the launch of its Size 16 Floating Fiber Optic
Pin Termini, an innovative product suited for a wide variety of applications
and markets.

Sabritec’s new floating pin termini provide exceptional low loss
characteristics with high reliability and repeatability. They are designed to
fit available formats of standard off the shelf electrical MIL-DTL-38999
cylindrical connectors (i.e. D38999/20 & /26). The floating pin eliminates the
need of using costly tight tolerance and hard to locate D38999/60 & /61
connector thus lowering the overall cost of ownership.

The floating pin termini self aligns into standard connector formats thus
improving the fiber optic pin to socket alignment resulting in improved
insertion loss performance with a .006” radial and 3.25 degree angular
misalignment. The floating mechanism helps to ensure precision alignment of
the fiber ferrules in extreme environmental conditions of shock and vibration.

The floating pin termini is designed for ease of assembly, is field
replaceable and is completely interchangeable and comparable in cost to
standard M29504/4 Termini (without the built in floating low loss mechanism).
The precise hole diameter and alignment features built in the ferrule and
contact design provide a repeatable low loss connection suited for a wide
variety of single mode and multi-mode fiber optic cables. The terminus is
available with a Zirconia ferrule for single and multi-mode applications.
