Composite aeronautics connectors meet REACH regulation
The goal of European REACH regulation is to improve health and environmental protection by banning the use of SVHC (Substance of Very High Concern) chemicals while promoting the competitiveness of the European Union's chemical industries.
Submersible connectors for high and low pressure
It has been announced that SOURIAU has developed considerable expertise in the design and manufacture of robust and extremely reliable submersible connectors. Its dry-mate product ranges, for out-of-water mating, formerly known as Jupiter connectors, have been proven in both civil and military underwater applications for over 50 years.
A major player in connectivity for Smart Agriculture
The growth in world population is placing increased demands on agricultural production. This is one of the major challenges of modern agriculture, now in the midst of major transformation. Now that "intelligent" and connected equipment is becoming available on the market, answers to these needs are now within reach, while at the same time addressing environmental concerns.
Key criteria for aeronautic interconnection solutions
Whether for satellites in orbit or along the ocean floor, the demand for connections to enable the transmission of data, signals or electrical power increases every year. In aeronautics, the on-board equipment and materials of an aircraft must be able to withstand extreme climatic and mechanical conditions, because at an altitude of 10,000 metres, a small failure can have critical consequences. In this kind of application, failure is not an optio...
Standard compliant hermetic connectors for harsh environments
In the category of hermetic connectors destined for use in harsh environments and especially in civil and military aeronautics applications, SOURIAU offers a wide range of products compliant with numerous standards such as EN3646, EN2997 and MIL-DTL-38999. The hermetic connectors benefit from the advantages of their specific technology, manufacturing process and quality control.
