CODE RED Lightweight Hermetic Sealing Connectors

CODE RED Lightweight Hermetic Sealing Connectors

"Mission-Critical" Hermetic Sealing with 1x10-7 Leak-Rate Performance, Lower Electrical Resistance and Lighter Weight

Hermetically-sealed interconnects used in vacuum or high-altitude applications prevent moisture and other contaminants from damaging sensitive electronic equipment. Glass-to-metal hermetic sealing has been the gold standard in the aerospace and petrochemical industries for decades due to the strength and long-term durability of the materials used. But glass-to-metal seal hermetics come with a big price tag in both weight and electrical resistance.

CODE RED is an innovative sealing encapsulant and application process — invented by Glenair — that provides durable hermetic sealing in a lightweight aluminum package. CODE RED allows for the use of conventional gold-plated copper alloy contacts, significantly improving electrical performance. CODE RED hermetic connectors are available now in Glenair SuperNine® (D38999 Series III type metal and composite), Series 80 Mighty Mouse, and M24308 D-Sub; and deliver reliable, life-of-system 1x10-7 max leak-rate hermetic sealing. Special non-magnetic (zero residual magnetism) versions are also available, consult factory.

Lightweight Aluminum Hermetic Receptacles, PC Tail

Series 806 Mil-Aero Connectors

Aluminum hermetic receptacles are lighter in weight compared to stainless steel glass-to-metal hermetic connectors. A proprietary sealing process delivers reliable hermetic performance at extreme temperatures. Gold-plated copper alloy contacts have lower resistance and higher current rating than iron alloy contacts used in glass-to-metal hermetics. Hermeticity is 1E-7 cm3sec at 1 ATM pressure differential. Integral standoffs and threaded mounting holes provide secure attachment to rigid or flex circuits. Micro Miniature Series 806 connectors are parylene compatible, and ideal for harsh environment aerospace applications subject to severe wind, moisture and vibration.
