How to Select a Power Supply Connector

Power connectors are devices that allow an electrical current to pass through it for the exclusive purpose of providing power (not a data stream, for example). These connectors can be used with many different types of electronics and customers must find the specific type of connector that best matches their electronics’ geometry and electrical needs.

Connectors for Space Applications

Ideally, space connectors are not only efficient at their job, they are also capable of standing up to harsh environmental conditions, being reliable and long lasting (because repair is typically impossible once you’ve left the earth’s surface), and still remain unimposing (so that it won’t disturb the other equipment on board).

Low Profile, Superior Transfer Characteristics

Ohmite’s new flat core winding technology allows for wirewound heatsinkable resistors affording a very low profile, and superior thermal transfer characteristics when compared to conventional aluminum-housed wirewound resistors.
