Meritec announces the latest addition to the VPX-Plus product line. In order to meet the increasing demand for Military grade applications, Meritec continues to develop the Meritec VPX-Plus interconnect product line.

The world’s first and only cabling solution for use with the TE MultiGIG Rt-2 connector is expanding to include Mil Standard Hookup and Lead Wire, available in a Meritec VPX-Plus, off-the-shelf, standard product cable assembly. Offered in both 24” and 48” lengths in Even and Odd row configurations, these assemblies are RoHS compliant.

The 98141OHU290-(024 -048), Odd row, wafer-to-wafer assemblies consist of wafers wired with six lines of color coded, 24 AWG Mil Std Hookup wires in signal positions A,B,E,F,I and an additional line connecting the wafer ground planes in a point-to-point pinout.

The 98141EHU290-(024 -048), Even row, wafer-to-wafer assemblies consist of wafers wired with five lines of color coded, 24 AWG Mil Std Hookup wires in signal positions C,D,G,H and an additional line connecting the wafer ground planes in a point-to-point pinout.

The VPX-Plus modular design, patent pending, allows the end user to select a single wafer or choose the required wafer configurations needed. These wafers simply snap together to form a connector assembly that inserts easily into the VPX-Plus connector housings, this product also provides the flexibility for The Customer to cut assemblies to length and terminate the second end with the connector of choice. Meritec VPX-Plus standard products designed specifically for both 3U and 6U, front and rear backplane applications are available and ready to ship. The newest additions to the VPX-Plus products further enhance Meritec’s VPX-Plus as an economical Off-the-Shelf cabling system that provides instant solutions to many of the connectivity challenges faced in today’s box and backplane developments. This enables our Customers to build assemblies to fit their specific and unique requirements.
