Get "Great Products, Better Service" with Cinch Equivalent Components

Posted in: MIL-STD-1553

It’s no secret that the fields of military avionics and aerospace can be complex. And choosing the right MIL-STD-1553 assembly or component can be complicated, especially if the one you need has several different product names based on its manufacturer or the supplier. Further complicating things is when you need the product right away and not every supplier has it in stock or can get it shipped out the same day as ordered.


To make this process easier, we have created a cross-reference guide that matches popular mil/aero products made by Cinch Connectivity Solutions with equivalent products from MilesTek, so that if one option isn’t available, you can easily find an alternative that is in-stock. Let’s say you’ve been using a Cinch 78-ohm twinaxial cable with the part number TWC-78-2 and you need a new one. If you do not find that model in our inventory of Cinch Trompeter products, simply glance at our cross-reference guide to find the alternative, which in this case would be MilesTek part number 30 02001.


The cross-reference guide can be downloaded from our Cinch alternatives landing page, which also lists all of the MilesTek equivalent products we have in stock, including twinaxial cable, cable plugs, cable jacks and bulkhead jacks.


Besides being easy to locate, you will find two other benefits with MilesTek’s Cinch-equivalent products: quality and availability.


Certified Quality

Our Cinch-equivalent products offer not only the same form, fit and function as Cinch components, but provide the durability and reliability necessary for quality system performance. For over 30 years, MilesTek has supplied MIL-STD-1553 products that address military avionics, aerospace, industrial and government network project requirements. These products meet all MIL-STD-1553 standards, including requirements for MIL-STD-1553B and MIL-STD-1553C revisions.


In addition, our quality management system is validated by an independent, accredited third party through our ISO 9001:2015 certification. This goes for our entire MIL-STD-1553 product line, which includes data bus couplers, bus and stub cable assemblies, connectors and more.


In-Stock Products with Same-Day Shipping

We get it: Downtime is not always an option. Your critical systems and deployments require products that are not only robust enough for military and aerospace applications but ready to ship, so that all your timelines are met. That’s why we operate on an availability model in which we keep our thousands of products in-stock and ready to be shipped the same day you order them.


We also offer a fast turnaround on custom cable assemblies we manufacture to your exact specifications. Other suppliers might take weeks or months to deliver custom components, but we will get it to you in days. Configure it yourself using our cable assembly wizard or by contacting us.


In addition, MilesTek does not require you to order minimum quantities with any of our items, and we are happy to send you product samples.
