Mini AVIM™ – the small and light fibre-optic connector
The Mini AVIM™ connector has been developed following a market request for a smaller and lighter version of our acclaimed AVIM™ connector for harsh environment, especially space applications.
The Mini AVIM™ combines two leading-edge technologies: the AVIM™ MIL style ratchet system and the base construction of Diamond Micro Interface (DMI) connector.
Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) availability and economy backed by component availability from stock and quick turnaround of terminations and assemblies. The Mini AVIM™ is aligned precisely in rotation and, therefore, it can be used for both standard SM and MM fibres, as well as for PM technologies and multi-fibre ferrules. Our Power Solution (PS) technology can also be applied to this connector.
