RANDOLPH, N.J. – Douglas Electrical Components, Inc. (DECo) introduces its Portplate systems, which combine fully assembled, pre-tested multiple feedthroughs on a single plate. The custom-designed and fabricated port plate assemblies minimize the amount of potential downtime due to system leaks, which would usually result in high costs and delays, associated with troubleshooting. The DECo-pioneered port plates can hold multiple sealed feedthroughs, depending on the project needs, and can be replaced as one unit, should leakage occur.
Customers benefit from the full range of service provided with these assemblies, including design, mounting, testing, installation, mating connectors, troubleshooting and full connectorization on the wire harness. The finished, ready-to-pump feedthrough plates are available to accommodate a variety of mixed configurations of feedthroughs including those from the DECo Ductorsealâ€šÃ‚Â®, Studsealâ€šÃ¢â€žÂ¢, Optisealâ€šÃ¢â€žÂ¢ and Potconâ€šÃ¢â€žÂ¢ product families. The plates can house a variety of connector densities and counts, as well as mating connectors, and ready-to-go, fiber optic bulkheads.
The assemblies are available in various sizes ranging from 6â€šÃ¢â‚¬Â through 48â€šÃ¢â‚¬Â in diameter and offer full strain relief. They can be provided with or without connectors, and are shipped to customer facilities as a complete assembly, ready to install and pump. DECo also offers vacuum outgassing bakeout for components or the entire unit. Common applications for these systems include space simulation, HVAC compressors, magnetic bearing flywheels, semiconductor manufacturing equipment and mass spectrometry.
