From stage separation to flight computer to power distribution, and all of the harnessing in-between, you can count on TE. TE provides high tech, high reliability solutions for spacecraft chassis and satellite buses, including data and power interconnect, sensors, power distribution devices like relays and contactors, space compatible wire, cable and integrated systems, such as Mil-Std-1553 databus. TE also produces the VITA 78 SpaceVPX connectors based on VITA 46 VPX, the lightest weight, most widely used VPX solution globally.
Raychem Spec 55 Wire and Cable
TE’s Raychem brand SPEC 55 wire & cable is a low-fluoride, flexible thin-wall wire and cable. Cross-linked ETFE yields smaller diameter, lighter weight and excellent chemical resistance. Single and dual-wall construction. Excellent abrasion and cut-through resistance; flexibility across an extended temperature range of -65° to +200° C.
Our space-grade data bus products offer reduced weight, low outgassing, enhanced temperature ranges, and radiation resistance. We offer custom assemblies for high-performance networking of sophisticated subsystems to conserve space, weight, and power consumption.
KILOVAC Relays and Contactors
TE's Kilovac product line has been synonymous with high voltage switching since 1964. Our Kilovac products helped pioneer the development of vacuum and pressurized high voltage relays and contactors.
