Versailles, France b>SOURIAU ELIO® , is hermaphroditic. This Fiber Optics contact was developed in partnership with the users and offers the best performance when high speed and broad band-width are requested. Thanks to its excellent technical qualities and its ease of use, SOURIAU’s ELIO® technology has been selected for avionics applications (management of the cockpit screens, taxi aid processor, head-up display system) and for the in-flight entertainment of the Airbus new large carrier : A-380. The military field also trusts this technology. ELIO® is used on the night vision system of the Leopard II tank from Krauss Maffei and was qualified by the French Military Navy (DCN). The Quadrax solution is the best choice for the copper high-speed systems such as AFDX (100 Mbps Full-Duplex Ethernet). Thanks to its wiring method unique on the market, SOURIAU guarantees performance exceeding the standards. This solution will be used on Airbus future large carrier (A380) or Boeing 7E7, as well as on jets programs (F7X) and military program (A400M). As an intermediate solution between ELIO® and QUADRAX, SOURIAU’s FCDB (Fiber Channel Data Bus) allows data rates up to 2 Gbps between two calculators. Used with a Fibre Channel protocol, the FCDB solution was selected for video applications on American military helicopters.
