The TransEra GPIO cable is designed to work with both the TransEra Series 600/650 GPIO interfaces and the HP 98622A GPIO interface.
One end of the cable is attached to a matching, shielded, 50-pin connector. The other end of the cable is left as open-bonded wires enclosed in a cardboard cover ready to connect individually to an interface or to insert into a mass termination connector.
The cable is double shielded to reduce EMI and RFI interference. The 28 AWG twisted pair cable structure reduces cross-talk between adjacent conductors. It also incorporates a drain wire which provides a superior ground path. The flexible, compact cable structure helps meet dense packaging requirements.
The tin-plated connector shell provides superior grounding and is designed for I/O applications where EMI/RFI suppression is required. The gold over nickel-plated beryllium copper contacts are positioned on 2.16mm (.085 in) centers. The connector locking screws have the ISO metric thread M3.5x0.6-6G or equivalent O.M.F.S. Thread 3.5PO.6 to assure a reliable and positive connection of the cable assembly to the GPIO interface.
