Hermetic Al 38999: High Power and 60% Lighter
Product Announcement from PA&E
PA&E's aluminum 38999 mateable DC connector has an operating temperature range of -65°C to 155°C and a leak rate of less than 1X10-9 cc/sec helium at one atmospheric differential pressure. It provides insulation resistance of more than 5,000 megohms at 500 VDC during dielectric withstanding voltage testing and exhibits no evidence of breakdown or flashover when tested IAW MIL-STD-1344, Method 3003. The connector accepts 24 to 30 AWG solid or stranded wire.
The aluminum circular 38999 mateable hermetic connector from PA&E can be designed to be laser welded into aluminum housings. Laser welding is a non-contact, high-precision welding process that exhibits an extremely small heat-affected zone, ensuring components or electronic packages are exposed to the least-hostile welding environment possible. The connector is also available in a jam-nut style.
