Many of today’s connectors are fitted to cables, and so understanding them is important when selecting the right connector for your application.
Connectors and other entry points can be the weak spots in designing electronics for harsh environments. Can your connector withstand its environment? It is important to select a connector that not only withstands temperature, pressure, dust and corrosion but maintains the integrity of the case design.
Learn about when to use modular connectors and how to evaluate the right connector for your application.
Do you want to throw out a $50,000 drone when the connector fails? Of course not. You need your connectors to last.
PosiBand uses a spring clip that yields a uniform electrical connection across a much greater surface area than split-finger designs. This allows more current flow with less heat generation, yielding the best power density per contact in the industry.
Modular connectors are designed to allow customers to construct a bespoke design from a range of standard options. The components of the modular connector are already designed and ready to manufacture, making it easy for the customer to specify the exact features required.
The technology used within spacecraft equipment carries a lot of responsibility, so it must undergo rigorous testing on earth before it can be launched into space. This is where hermetic connectors come into play.
Positronic PosiBand technology offers lower contact resistance, contributing to higher current density (or current per contact).
Positronic has chosen TraceParts as its catalog publisher to publish products on www.traceparts.com, the TraceParts Publishing Network, as well as on its own web site.
Test instruments are almost never compatible with the space environment leading to the condition of having to pass all connections through pressure differential walls that separate the two environments. This is where hermetic connectors come into play and they need to possess distinct features allowing for multiple test configurations.
