The Birns Millennium 3T electro-coax hybrid segment includes GPS capabilities, as well as flexible solutions for high definition cameras and antennae for military and industrial applications. This elevated level of capabilities and performance does not come at the cost of optical loss, however—the typical loss recorded for a cable assembly of the series is <1dB, in accordance with ANSI/TIA/EIA-455 for fiber optic return loss test procedures. Fiber optic configurations for the Millennium 3T may have different overall dimensions than standard Birns Millennium electrical connectors.
Both the electro-optical and electro-coax hybrid formats of the Birns Millennium 3T series can be made with special mounting configurations that can be designed to conform to MIL-C-24217/4-005 specs. This provides a seamless upgrade option for legacy equipment without necessitating costly comprehensive replacements.
