Space Level Screening

Omnetics Connector Corporation has a rich history of supporting orbital and deep space projects. Our connectors have been used on the Co-Star, Space Shuttle, Mars Rover and Iridium satellite, to name a few. Omnetics can aid in the design of connectors and harnesses suitable for your application. We offer multiple levels of space screening to the requirements of your specific application.

Ordering Steps:

Step 1 - Choose a suitable Micro or Nano connector

New Connector Design & Materials are focused on low weight, high density and rugged superiority to meet the extreme reliability demands during launch through deep space operations. Special “rugged-mount” designs can be made to system configurations. Materials have been selected for thermal-expansion match to sustain continued performance from launch pad through geo-thermal orbit conditions. With increased densification of cable diameter and reduced connector size, nano-interconnect systems offer significantly reduced weight and lower payload costs. Our design team will also help with unique cable requirements to solve EMI, Cross-talk and High Speed problems. Backshells, Strain-reliefs, Braided shields and Special cables are all available to improve handling and extend life in your system. Call our Sales Rep or Omnetics direct and we will work with you to optimize your design.
