Space Grade Connectors

Space grade connectors must meet stringent tests for outgassing and residual magnetism and are suitable for use in aerospace and satellite communications as well as medical and high-performance military applications.

The outgassing process transforms a standard connector into space grade. PEI has NASA-approved outgassing capabilities via our two in-house controlled, vacuum ovens. While outgassing normally takes weeks, we can fully outgas a connector in just 4 hours, which allows us to assemble, outgas, test, package and ship. We deliver test reports with every outgassed connector.

We can outgas electroless nickel-plated versions of MIL-DTL-38999s, converting them into space grade Class G D38999s. We offer Class G D38999s from Amphenol, ITT Cannon and TE Connectivity DEUTSCH. We can also outgas Amphenol 2M Micro-Miniature circular connectors to make them space grade. In addition to our in-house outgassing capability, we also stock ITT Cannon’s space grade, non-magnetic d-sub NM/NMB series connectors. Click to learn more about the outgassing process.
