Orlando, Fla., May 15, 2014 — API Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:ATNY), a leading provider of high performance RF/microwave, power and security solutions for critical and high-reliability applications, now manufactures a series of multi-conductor cable assemblies for satellites. With this introduction, API has increased its capabilities of supporting space applications from its Electromagnetic Integrated Solutions (EIS) product line, the leader in EMI/RFI components and interconnects.
Designed to deliver dependable operation and cost savings in applications that require high reliability, these multi-conductor cable assemblies are manufactured in accordance with ASTM E595 outgassing specifications. The space cables have also been 100% tested for continuity, dielectric withstanding voltage (DWV), and insulation resistance.
Ideal for use in satellite communications and telecommunication services, these rugged, corrosive resistant space cables have a minimum lifespan of 20 years.
Jason Russolese, EIS director of global sales and marketing, API Technologies said, “These new cable assemblies have passed not only API Technologies’ stringent electrical requirements, but also the highly demanding mechanical elements such as pull testing, contact retention and separation force testing, making them compliant to the customers strict space-level specifications.”
API Technologies’ Electromagnetic Integrated Solutions (EIS) line offers a broad range of vertically integrated EMI/RFI solutions from standard components to complex assemblies. This includes power filters, film capacitors, single- and multi-line filters, and filtered terminal blocks. This is in addition to a broad range of standard and custom magnetic devices (transformers, inductors, chokes, and coils) as well as custom and specialty filtered connectors, cables, and harnessing products.
