Lighter and Faster Connectivity Solutions for Defense Systems

TE Connectivity Will Showcase Space and Weight Savings Products at IDEX 2017

Members of the media are invited to visit TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, at booth #03-C27 for IDEX 2017, an international strategic defense exhibition and conference. TE will showcase lightweight connectivity solutions for rugged military defense systems.

Nothing is more important on the battlefield than having a reliable system. As military and defense systems grow more complex, electronic soldier systems, weapon systems, and unmanned vehicles must balance superior and reliable performance with space and weight savings.

TE develops connectivity solutions that meet these challenges in rugged harsh environments and applications from power distribution to defense networking.

Some of TE’s latest products include solutions for harsh military systems. The INSTALITE ZH-15 tubing is the first heat shrinkable tubing to combine high-temperature and zero halogen capabilities in a lightweight material. The Ceelok FAS-X connector is a high speed solution for 10Gb/s data delivery, available in aluminum or composite shells. TE’s range of 38999 connectors are mil spec qualified and available in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, materials and finishes to meet virtually any need.

TE also makes weight savings a priority when it comes to materials. TE uses composites in replace of metal enclosures to give the mechanical and electrical benefits of metal but with lower weight and costs and higher corrosion resistance. TE also uses carbon nanotube technology (CNT) in military systems such as satellites, UAVs, and military aircraft for significant weight reductions in the thousands of pounds.

TE representatives will be available throughout the show to answer questions and participate in interviews related to TE’s end-to-end solutions.

SHOW:             IDEX 2017
DATE:               February 19-23, 2017
WHERE:           Booth #03-C27
