TE Connectivity (TE), a leader in connectivity, announced its D-200 high-temperature, flexible splice kit specifically designed for use in demanding high-temperature aerospace and defense applications. Rated at 200 degrees Celsius and offer a reliable cable connection, the product offers circumferential (360 degree) shielding that helps provide electromagnetic interference (EMI) protection and shield continuity equal to or greater than the original cable. The splice kit also offers environmental protection, making the cables resistant to fluid immersion, including aircraft fuels, lubricating oils, hydraulic fluids and cleaning agents.
“TE Connectivity has a long history of manufacturing and supplying robust and reliable splice kits for military and commercial aircraft platforms,” said Janeann Avants, Product Manager, Global Aerospace, Defense & Marine, TE. “With the increased demand for higher temperature applications, our splice kits continue to be in demand worldwide.”
The D-200 high-temperature, flexible splice kit allows bending of the cable without outer insulation cracking. Cables can be spliced with existing crimp and heating tools, and the additional sealing ring allows splicing of 1-to-1, 2-to-1 and 2-to-2 constructions. The splice kit works well with shielded single, paired and triplet cables and has a wire range of 26 AWG to 10 AWG.
