NYK now stocking Sealtron hermetic connectors
17 February 2012
NYK Component Solutions is now able to supply Sealtron’s EN2997 Y and YE hermetic connectors and offer a full range of receptacles, including EN2997-005 Class Y and YE, EN2997-006 Class Y & YE and EN2997-007 Class Y & YE in shell sizes 8 through to 28. The connectors are qualified to the ASD (formerly known as Association Europeene des Constructeurs de Materiel Aerospatial or AECMA)
Specification and key design features include metal-to metal grounding between receptacles and mating plugs, passivated stainless steel shell material and gold plated electrical contacts with solder cup terminations. The product is qualified to operate up to 260º Celsius (cyclical) and will withstand an extended range of fluids in an aerospace environment.
Solder eyelet style terminations or thermocouple (Type K) pins are also available as commercial equivalents that 'meet the design requirements' of EN2997, however they cannot be marked with the EN part number nor certified to the specification.
NYK Component Solutions provides an extensive line of connectors and contacts for the civil aerospace industry; civil interconnect products include MIL-DTL-38999 Series I, II, & III in aluminium, steel, and composite shells; MIL-DTL-26500, M83723, EN2997, ESC10, MS26482 and 5015. In addition, NYK is also able to distribute a variety of connectors, grounding modules, along with engine connectors conforming to EN2997 & MIL-DTL-83723 Series III specifications.
NYK can also supply backshells, including M85049 straight, and right angled for all shell sizes. Typically the humble backshell is an afterthought but NYK have extended its stock profile to match growing demand.
