Custom Aerospace Connectors Are Hermetically Sealed to Resist Harsh Conditions
ORLANDO, Fla.—API Technologies Corp. has introduced a new family of hermetically sealed circular connectors for aerospace applications with high differential pressure. The connectors, from API's Spectrum Control line of products, meet MIL-DTL-38999 fine leak requirements and are reportedly well suited for aerospace engine control, hydraulic, and caustic environments, where harsh conditions could exist.
"These hermetically sealed receptacles can be used in any application where harsh conditions could compromise the operation of electrical equipment," said Larry Howanitz, vice president, Electromagnetic Integrated Solutions & Sensors, API Technologies, in a press release. "These connectors protect against changes in atmospheric pressure and exposure to humidity, grime, and chemicals. They are an ideal solution for commercial aerospace and industrial applications, as well as communication systems, military aircraft, and defense armaments."
The connector's receptacle has a seal of 10-7 cm3 and comes in filtered and unfiltered versions. According to the manufacturer, they can be used in any applications that require unfiltered custom mechanical variations or filtering with a ruggedized seal.
API Technologies (www.apitechnologies.com) designs, develops, and manufactures electronic systems, subsystems, RF, and secure solutions for technically demanding defense, aerospace, and commercial applications. The company's Electromagnetic Integrated Solutions (EIS) line of products offers filters and interconnects, advanced ceramics, specialty connectors and harnessing, power filters, and film modules.
