Souriau launches 853 KV connector class
WENATCHEE, Wa., 10 July 2011. Souriau has unveiled its KV class connectors for high-vibration and high-temperature (260°C) requirements encountered in aircraft engines and other harsh operating environments. To minimize weight and optimize the ergonomics of wiring harnesses in aviation and other applications, KV class connectors boast an integrated backshell.
The KV class connectors with an integrated backshell have been tested to vibration levels higher than the usual international standards (M83723 and EN2997). In addition to traditional approval tests (8 hours of axial vibration at high temperature), KV class connectors have undergone vibration endurance testing for 60 hours with high levels of vibration (considerable movement of up to 13 inches/second and spectral density of 0.03 g²/Hz).
Souriau’s 8535 KV and 8536 KV connectors are well suited for harsh operating environments, with the added benefits of simplified wiring and weight reduction through their integrated backshell.
