Product News: Electrical Equipment & Systems
Push/Pull and BNC Connectors target UHV industry.
Press Release Summary:
October 25, 2012 - Combining stainless steel components with glass-ceramic insulators, Push & Pull Connectors come in single and 4-pin models, as well as welded and flange mounted configurations. Units withstand over 1,000 cycles of mating engagements, making them suitable for analytical equipment. Using stainless steel, glass ceramic, and Inconel, single and double ended BNC Connectors can sustain 500 Vdc, 1 A, and Cryogenic temperatures down to 4 K. Units operate with 50 Ω matched impedance at up to 12 GHz.

New Ceramaseal Push & Pull and BNC Connectors
Press release date: October 16, 2012
These new types of connectors are offered as weldable and in typical flange mounted configurations. The main technology driver for this product is the use of stainless steel components coupled with CTNAs glass-ceramic insulators. This product can withstand over 1000 cycles of mating engagement.
Typical applications include modern analytical equipment capable of producing real time date acquisition, mass spectroscopy, isotopic and dynamic range, carbon/sulfur analyzers, etc. the market for this feedthrough is expanding due to the elevated levels of vacuum required to improve the efficiency of the analyzers.
Another successful transition was made with a single and double ended BNC (Bayonet Neil Concelman) connector. These connectors use stainless steel, glass ceramic and Inconel to produce a connector capable of sustaining 500 VDC, 1 Amp of current, and Cryogenic temperatures down to 4 Kelvin. The BNCs are capable of operating with a 50 Ohm matched impedance and up to 12 GHz frequency.
These types of connectors have a broad range of applications from semiconductor instrumentation to optical devices such as high-end cameras used for monitoring and surveillance.
