Conductive antenna gasket is for avionics systems
At next month’s Farnborough Air Show, Chomerics, a division of Parker Hannifin, is previewing a conductive gasket for aerospace applications.
The urethane-filled, expanded aluminium gasket provides an electrically conductive fluid and pressure sealing solution for a variety of flange-to-flange assemblies, such as aircraft fuselage mounted accessories, for example, antenna and exterior lighting; access panel assemblies; and connector or waveguide assemblies.
The increasing deployment of sensitive analogue circuitry alongside power electronics in safety critical aviation systems has highlighted the importance of effective shielding solutions to ensure safety and reliability is maintained in even the most demanding operating conditions. The company has worked with leading aviation companies to deliver lightweight cable shielding products; lightning strike protection using conductive materials; and shielded optical windows for cockpit displays and in-flight entertainment systems. It is also showcasing thermal management to regulate operating temperatures and ensure that electronic systems are maintained at the optimum temperature.
