BEL Cinch Connectivity Solutions C-ENX range of shells, inserts and contacts for in-cabin interconnectivity for the aerospace industry. The main applications include routing power, signal, and data for avionic systems throughout the aircraft. Designed to meet the requirements of ARINC 800 and European Standard EN 4644, product family features a rectangle profile that provides a reduction in weight and size over the circular connectors currently used by the aerospace industry. This translates directly to operational cost savings over the lifetime of the aircraft. As well as offering higher pin density and lower weight, the design allows for blind mating needed for LRM/LRUs (line replaceable modules and units). Devices are available in single-, double-, triple-, and quadruple-cavity outlines for panel mount to cable, cable to cable, floating mount and panel mount to panel mount configurations.
