The given dimensions are for the fixed part (on a mounting plate) of the QRC assembly but exclude its 765mm long cable. The free part of the QRC assembly (that connects to a helmet assembly) weighs 345g and is 46mm diameter x 95mm long plus its 850mm cable.
This assembly links the Head Equipment Assembly via an umbilical cable to the Electronics Unit. All the Head Tracker, Drive functions, communications and conditioned power (including high voltage) run through the umbilical which must be lightweight and flexible and also resistant to handling and wear. The circular assembly is a vital component the Quick Release Connector which absolutely must release the umbilical on ejection and yet handle day to day usage.
