The requirements for the sealing of electrical transmission interfaces are rapidly growing. Once only requiring the blockage of general dust and water tightness in industrial applications as well as high-pressure tightness underwater to now requiring an almost airtight seal – hermetic sealing.
The IEC 60068 distinguishes between three quality levels of hermetic sealing: fine, high and ultra-high vacuums. Hermetically sealed (tested helium leakage rate < 1 × 10-9 mbar/s) , the new ODU MINI-SNAP® receptacles not only meet the demanding requirements of the UHV- suitable interfaces but also comply with high-performance data transfer. Additional product features include: 5,000 mating cycles, up to 500 autoclaving cycles, rear panel installation, temperature range from –20° C to +120° C.
The new ODU MINI-SNAP® receptacles offer a solution for various industrial, test and measurement and medical applications including, but not limited to semiconductor production equipment, vacuum sensors, and high-end endoscopes.
