Our new 2021 High-Reliability, Harsh-Environment Connectivity eBook features an informative collection of high-quality connectivity content from experts at more than 20 leading connectivity companies.

The 13 technical, tutorial articles collected in this special issue eBook address connectivity trends and specification tips for high-reliability connectors, cables, cable assemblies, and sensors deployed in harsh-environment applications spanning land, sea, air, and space. Military, aviation, and space industries emerged as topics of interest this issue, along with industrial applications ranging from automation to alternative energy. Several authors also addressed the unique demands of the marine, transportation, and test and measurement industries.

Design engineers working in these industries today face myriad challenges posed by the  growing demand for ever-greater interconnectivity combined with exacting electrical performance standards, stringent reliability requirements, and rigorous environmental and operating hazards. In this eBook, interconnect experts explain how to assess and overcome a litany of such challenges and achieve optimal connectivity solutions as quickly, safely, effectively, and cost-effectively as possible.

Authors touch on the design, development, and testing of connectivity solutions optimized to enable the safe, secure, and reliable transmission of power, signal, data, and other media and withstand exposure to an extensive array of environmental operating hazards ranging from mechanical shock and vibration to extreme temperatures, dust, dirt, humidity, water, corrosion, oils, gasses, chemicals, the vacuum of space, and even explosions. They also share tips to address demands for characteristics including size, weight, power efficiency, cost savings, design flexibility, ease of installation and maintenance, standards compliance, and high-speed, high-bandwidth, high-signal-integrity data transmission.

In addition, this special issue eBook highlights a selection of more than 40 connectivity products designed, developed, tested, or even qualified to satisfy high-reliability, harsh-environment connectivity demands. 

Contributors include AirBorn, Amphenol Pcd, Axon’ Cable, BizLink, Carlisle Interconnect Technologies, Cinch Connectivity Solutions, Fischer Connectors, Harwin, LEMO, Mill-Max Mfg. Corp., Mouser Electronics, Phoenix Contact, Smiths Interconnect, TE Connectivity, ERNI, Interstate Connecting Components (ICC), METZ CONNECT, Neutrik, Samtec, SV Microwave, and WAGO.
