When you want to bring power and signal wires through pressure and vacuum chambers, do you consider using ready-made, sealed bulkhead connectors first? These connectors may seem to be the only option you have to run wires through the chamber walls, but they’re not. Ready-made connectors have some downsides to consider before use, such as limiting design and increasing the chance of creating electrical problems. Another option, and one that is likely to cost you less in the long run, is working with our experts to provide a customized hermetic electrical feedthrough.
These feedthroughs use a wire harness to pass conductors through the chamber wall without a drop in pressure or vacuum. They are more flexible to work with in the design stages and they can actually boost electrical performance through eliminating a drop in voltage and any contact-resistance issues that can affect connectors. Work with our engineers to learn how a custom-made hermetic electrical feedthrough can benefit your system.
