Design engineers in defense, aerospace and other industries where low weight and superior electrical performance are key considerations have a new option, following PA&E’s release of its new aluminum Micro-D connector.
PA&E is now using its patented ceramic-to-metal sealing technology to manufacture hermetically sealed windows for optical, laser and infrared applications. The unique bonding properties and polycrystalline structure of PA&E’s Kryoflex® material now allow the company to produce sight or wave-guide windows that maintain the highest levels of hermetic integrity under the extreme environmental conditions. This new product is particularly well suited for space or defense-related LADAR, laser designation/acquisition systems and medical endoscopes.
Engineers designing electronic components for use in applications where non-magnetic characteristics are required now have a new connector option following PA&E’s announcement of its new non-magnetic Micro-D connector line.
Engineers designing electronic components that must operate reliably in harsh environments can now leverage the increased performance of fiber optic technology, following the release of PA&E’s new hermetic fiber optic bulkhead feedthru for the Souriau ELIO 38999 fiber optic connector line. This new, lightweight interconnect solution allows engineers to take advantage of fiber optics in applications where that technology was once unworkable due to hermetic requirements. And, it delivers truly hermetic performance at a significant (up to 60%) weight savings when compared to stainless steel alternatives.
Design engineers in defense, space, aviation, and other industries, where light weight and superior hermetic performance are key considerations, have a new option following PA&E’s release of its new aluminum circular 38999 DC connector.
