MilesTek, a leading manufacturer and supplier of products designed to address military and avionics applications, announced today that they have released a new series of vacuum-rated TVAC connectors that are designed and manufactured with materials that meet the Total Mass Loss (TML) or out gassing requirements of NASA.
This new connector series consists of five different models that can be terminated to .129″ O.D. cable. These 78 Ohm connectors are designed for high-temperature applications with an operating temperature ranging from 55°C to +200°C. Available connector styles include TCS, TRB, TRS and TTM.
“These new vacuum-rated connectors were designed for use in thermal vacuum chamber research and development applications involving high-performance satellites and space vehicles where there is zero margin for error. These connectors can be used to build new assemblies or as replacement connectors to repair existing assemblies,“ said Mark Hearn, Product Manager.
In addition to these new connectors, MilesTek recently launched a series of vacuum-rated TVAC cable assemblies.
