DECo Will Showcase Extensive Line of Fiber, Coax, Copper and Hybrid Hermetic Seals for High-Vacuum Space Simulation Feedthroughs

(RANDOLPH, N.J.: October 6, 2010) Douglas Electrical Components, Inc. (DECo) (http://www.douglaselectrical.com), a leading manufacturer standard and custom hermetic seals and feedthroughs for the space simulation industry, will be attending the 26th Space Simulation Conference from October 18-21, 2010, www.spacesimcon.org at the Doubletree Hotel in Annapolis, Maryland. Featuring three days of technical sessions preceded by one day of tutorials on environmental testing techniques, the conference serves as a major international forum in space hardware environmental testing for research and development and qualification.

"DECo has supplied hermetic seals for literally every major space simulation facility in North America and overseas, including NASA, CSA and John Hopkins,” said Ed Douglas, president of Douglas Electrical Components. “We are pleased to have this opportunity to showcase the products we have developed for these critical applications."

DECo (booth # 23) will be exhibiting some of their latest solutions for providing high-vacuum, high density, high-reliability feedthroughs engineered to get signals and power in and out of space simulation chambers.

DECo provides fully connectorized hermetic cable harnesses, sealed connectors and port plate solutions that avoid some of the drawbacks associated with traditional generic glass or ceramic connectors, which typically come supplied with only solder cups or PCB tails, creating potential points of failure. "We engineered our solutions to allow us to use common connector and wire harness materials and our own low outgassing epoxy material, providing the customer with a totally customized and prewired solution in weeks instead of months," said Douglas.
