Featured Product from MilesTek Corporation


MilesTek, a leading manufacturer and supplier of products designed to address military and avionics applications, announced today that it has released a new series of RoHS compliant MIL-STD-1553B bus couplers for use in mil/aero and ground vehicle applications.

MilesTek stocks and offers the industry's most complete line of data bus couplers for MIL-STD 1553B, including box-style and in-line coupler designs. Configurations include one through eight stub box style couplers, one through four stub inline couplers and bus couplers kits.

The Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive restricts the use of six hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment. RoHS was initially adopted by the European Union in 2003 and has now become a mandatory requirement for many military and civilian applications involving electronic products.

To address the demand for RoHS compliant products, MilesTek now stocks a wide range of MIL-STD-1553B box style bus couplers with one through eight stub options and models with single, double or no bus jacks. Additionally, these robust bus couplers feature a transformer ratio of 1.41:1 with stub resistor values of 59 Ohm, 2W, 1%.

"As a direct response to many of our customers' requests for off-the-shelf box couplers that were RoHS compliant, we now offer one of the industry's widest selections of MIL-STD-1553B box bus couplers that are fully RoHS compliant," said Mark Hearn, Product Manager.

MilesTek's new RoHS compliant MIL-STD-1553B bus couplers are in stock and available for immediate shipment.
