Members of the media are invited to visit TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, at booth #4B30 at the 2017 Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) to see the launch of TE’s expanded DEUTSCH 369 series of connectors and learn more about TE’s next-generation solutions for in-flight entertainment (IFE) and avionics systems.

The ability to support cellular devices, laptops and portable tablets is a necessary requirement for modern airlines. Aircraft passengers expect the in-flight comforts and convenience of web access, in-flight entertainment, and high-speed networking. To support this demand, aircraft require interconnect solutions that meet the needs of bandwidth and download speeds, while minimizing electronics to save space and weight.

TE helps meet these modern aircraft demands with connectivity solutions based on BACC, EN and ARINC standards that can assist with both performance and flexibility. Among these solutions are TE’s DEUTSCH 369 series connectors, which will be on display at AIX 2017.

During the show, TE will launch new printed circuit board (PCB)-mount options for the growing DEUTSCH 369 connector range. Engineers will be able to choose between two versions to suit their application, either a panel-mount configuration or a direct in-line mount to the PCB. These connectors are designed with the industry’s strict regulations and Electrical Wiring Interconnect Systems’ (EWIS) best practices in mind. The new quick-to-install in-line and panel-mount PCB versions follow these standards through carefully selected materials that help ensure low-smoke/flammability as well as their fully-sealed construction. The connectors are designed with minimized weight and size to maximize circuit-board space.

TE engineers will be available for interviews at the company’s booth throughout the show.
