Interconnection Solutions and Contact Systems for Aerospace Technologies

Multi-Contact Aerospace

Multi-Contact specialises in the design and development of electrical connection solutions and contact systems that can be tailored to the specific requirements of the aerospace and defence industry.

Electronic connectors and contact systems for aerospace technology

Electronic connectors and contact systems from Multi-Contact's standard portfolio and customised solutions for signal, power and data transfer as well as hydraulic and pneumatic connections can be use with aerospace technology.

Our solutions are lightweight, compact and vibration resistant. They meet the RTCA standard DO-160 for airborne equipment as well as other international requirements of the aerospace and defense industry.

The connector systems are suited for air, sea and land-based applications.

High-performance modular connector systems

Multi-Contact CombiTacline offers versatile connections options that can be tailored for a clients specific application. Due to its modularity, CombiTac can offers individual combination of power, signal, thermocouple, coaxial, fiber-optic, pneumatic, hydraulic and bus connections in a compact frame or housing.

Busbar connections by cliplam and fork connectors

Our slide-inline offerings are designed to create pull-out electrical connections between two systems of double-pole insulated busbars.

The cliplam system, a rackable connector for laminated busbars, can be easily attached to silver-plated busbars of varying thicknesses between 2mm and 5mm by means of two clips. The electrical contact is established by the Multi-Contact, Multilam contact elements, which form independent lines of current.

Multi-Contact also offers American standard fork connectors for 1in busbars. We offer different lengths to allow for a variety of power handling capabilities.

These connectors can be used for machine manufacturers that require power connections to be made with modules that slide into a cabinet or busbar.

High-performance power connectors for interconnection solutions

Multi-Contact power connectors can be used in a wide range of applications, such as power generation and distribution, rack and panel applications.We also offer special electrical contacts from AWG26 to AWG0000 that are extra lightweight and can be customised for use in various applications.

We also offer a multi-pole connector TBC, which has a compact design and a high tolerance to hydrocarbon compounds such as fossil fuels, ensuring an efficient and dependable connection even when subjected to severe vibrations and shocks.

Copper alloy multilam technology

Our products use Multi-Contact's advanced Multilam contact technology.

Multilams are specially formed, resilient strips of copper alloy that are float mounted in a groove. These strips can be gold or silver-plated according to their intended application. Their spring action has a self-cleaning effect on the contact surfaces, as well as maintaining a constant contact pressure.

Our Multilam technology allows us to meet a very broad range of requirements and to find solutions for the most severe constraints, including electrical from watts to mega watts, thermal up to 400°C, and mechanical, with contact durability of up to one million mating cycles.

Multi-Contact specialises in the design and manufacture of dynamic rotary and linear sliding contacts with high resistance to shock and vibration.
