What you are seeing here is our crystal clear acrylic vacuum chamber, hinged side door with clamps. In addition, our client has asked us to add 1. A quantity of two high power feedthroughs on the top right wall, 2. An 8-pin power connector, and 3. a multi-pin feed through. These vacuum feedthroughs enable the routing of electrical power and signals from the outside of the chamber into the inside of the chamber without disrupting the vacuum.

The Feedthroughs are fully fastened to the wall and hermetically sealed by an O-Ring or Vacuum epoxy. The advantage is that the electronics can be connected and a vacuum can be pulled without leakage.

If we open the door, we can see the power cables perturbing into the inside of the chamber. Here, our client is able to connect these wires to their electrical device, close the door, and pull a vacuum. Because the walls are made of cast transparent acrylic, the electrical components inside the chamber fully visible during the test.

Vacuum Degassing Systems
Vacuum Degassing Systems enable you to remove trapped gas inside your liquids - generally, epoxies. Degassing is a vital part of any two part or more mixing process, this includes but is not limited to epoxy, pharmaceutical mixing, potting, recipe creation. A vacuum degassing system consists of a vacuum pump, connection hardware (includes filters and traps) and a vacuum chamber.
D-SUB Vacuum Feedthroughs
D-Sub Vacuum Feedthroughs are universal connectors that enable you to connect from the outside towards the inside of your vacuum chamber. We carry a large list of D-subminiature connectors for your vacuum applications such as the 9 pin, 15 pin, 25 pin, 37 pin, and 50 pin or a combination of any described.
Our Work: High Altitude Vacuum Testing of Electrical Connectors and Components
This was an interesting project where one of our customers needed to test wires up to 44 inches long within a high altitude simulation environment. In addition to testing wires, several other electric connectors required altitude testing as well. The altitude requirements were 100,000 feet (30.510 km) which corresponds to 8.36 Torr - a piece of cake when it comes to the vacuum requirements of our chambers.
