Chomerics, a division of Parker Hannifin, is previewing a conductive gasket for aerospace applications at the forthcoming Farnborough International Airshow. Exhibiting on the Parker Aerospace stand (Hall 4, E50), Chomerics will also be showcasing a range of solutions for complex EMI/RFI shielding and thermal management.
Conductive gaskets deliver a combination of electrical shielding, grounding and environmental shielding. The urethane filled expanded aluminium gasket provides an electrically conductive fluid and pressure sealing solution for a variety of flange-to-flange assemblies. Examples include aircraft fuselage mounted accessories, such as antenna and exterior lighting; access panel assemblies; and connector/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. Chomerics has extensive experience of working with the world’s leading aviation companies to deliver solutions in areas including: lightweight cable shielding products; lightning strike protection using conductive materials; and shielded optical windows for cockpit displays and in-flight entertainment systems.
Chomerics is also showcasing thermal management solutions that help to regulate operating temperatures and ensure that electronic systems are maintained at the optimum temperature. This delivers stable performance, enhances reliability and increases expected life.
