AMPHENOL AEROSPACE OPERATIONS
Amphenol Aerospace, a Division of Amphenol Corporation, is one of the largest manufacturers of interconnect products in the world for the Military, Commercial Aerospace and Industrial markets. Amphenol designs, manufactures and markets cylindrical and rectangular, electronic, fiber optic, EMI/EMP filter, and a variety of special applications connectors and interconnect systems. Our new 307,000 square foot facility is nestled at the foothills of the Catskill Mountains in Sidney NY. The complex houses approximately 1,000 employees, incorporating state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies including CNC machining, die-casting, molding, impact and extruding, plating, screw machining and process controls. Our fully equipped material evaluation lab and an engineering support organization utilizing the latest in computer aided design software and analysis tools. This allows us to design, test and qualify interconnect systems.
Our interconnect products are supplied to thousands of OEMs worldwide and are supported by our worldwide sales and engineering force, plus the largest global network of electronic distributors.
For over 85 years, Amphenol Aerospace (formerly Bendix Interconnect division) has been the leader in advanced innovative designs for the Military/Aerospace markets. Our design team has created and designed Mil Spec interconnects such as MS 5015, 26482, and 38999. Our team has also developed the B3 contact technology that has been the backbone for the F-22 and F-35 Avionic systems and Space Station connectors, which are used to supply power and data on the International Space Station.
Amphenol remains committed to leading the industry into the next generation of interconnect solutions. We continue to invest in tools like Pro-Engineering and SpaceClaim for solid modeling and 3D printers that bring these models to life. Mechanical and stress analysis is performed with Pro Mechanica our team of Signal Integrity Engineers analyze full-wave, three dimensional and electromagnetic for high speed interconnects using CTS Microwave Studio. After design is complete, our engineering model shop can build physical prototypes for testing purposes.
Amphenol’s on-site test lab is fully equipped with mechanical, electrical, and environmental test capabilities. Tensile testers are used to evaluate engagement and separation forces of new contact and connector designs. Electrical testing capabilities include Low Level Contact Resistance, Insulation Resistance, Dielectric Withstanding Voltage, Corona, Current Carrying capacity, Signal Integrity Validation, Electrostatic Discharge, Electrical Filtering and Transient Suppression Validation, and Shielding Effectiveness testing, with capabilities to evaluate at potentials of up to 50 KV, and currents up to 2500 A VDC, 400 A VRMS up to 2000 Hz. In addition, our lab can perform random and sine vibration at -65C to+200C, mechanical shock, thermal cycling and shock, humidity cycling, Salt Spray/Fog + SO2, and chemical compatibility testing, all under one roof.
Our teams are dedicated to providing innovative solutions for your current and future applications.
