Product Announcement from Douglas Electrical Components
Space-simulation facilities are expensive to operate, with zero tolerance for failure. These giant vacuum chambers are developed to test and refine equipment and instruments intended to function in the challenging high-vacuum, high-solar-radiation, low-temperature environment of outer space. That's why literally all major space-simulation facilities in the U.S., as well as many overseas facilities, depends on Douglas Ductorseal/PotCon feedthroughs.
We offer many options, from high-density wire harness packages to the convenient "In Line" PBTR PotCon Quick Disconnect that allows easy testing via existing instrument connectors.
- Deutsch equivalent solutions
- Fiber optic feedthrus and hybrid fiber optic/copper/coax feedthrus
- Fiber optic vacuum seal. Using a combination of multimode and singlemode fibers sealed in a conflat flange.
- High frequency, up to 18GHz, Potcon feedthru.
- Mixed bundle feedthru designed to get your signal, thermocouple and power lines thru a single penetration in the customers vacuum chamber.
- Multi conductor feedthrus
- Multi conductor harnesses for power and signal transmission, with lead lengths up to 150 feet or more and over 8,000 wires through a single flange.
- Multi-conductor harnesses for power and signal transmission, with lead lengths up to 150 feet or more and over 8,000 wires through a single flange.
- Multi-connector potcon flange. For achieving multiple quick electrical connection points thru a single bulkhead hole. Available with virtually any connector or flange.
- Multiple hermetic 100 pin Micro-d connector-to-wire configuration (RBTW). Wires are twisted shielded pairs.
- Multiple-connector flange (coaxial and d-sub) for providing high conductor count into a small 2 3/4" conflat flange.
- Retrofit of old/non-standard feedthrus
- Shielded and coaxial cables All types of shielded conductors may be sealed, allowing direct connection of sensitive circuits.
- Thermocouples Direct seals on all T/C alloys, no need for disconnects at the port plate.
