...the Latest Addition to Its Industry-Standard PeeWee Cable Assembly Product
Rancho Cordova, CA - December 5, 2019 –
Teledyne e2v HiRel, producer of the
longtime industry-leading PeeWee high voltage cable assembly, this week unveiled
a major new addition to the high voltage product line called Ruggedized PeeWee,
- Commercial & Defense TWTs
- High Voltage Power Supplies
- Semiconductor systems
- Medical Equipment
- 12 kVDC rated for high altitude use
- 0-70,000 ft. altitude
- -55ºC to +125ºC operating range
- 100% screened at 18 kVDC, 70,000 ft.
- 18 kVDC rated for lab use
- 0-10,000 ft. altitude
- 10ºC to 40ºC operating range
- 100% screened at 24 kVDC, 10,000 ft.
- Ergonomically robust
- Military Grade mechanical shock and vibration resistant
- Easy to mate (<4 lb. mating force)
- Salt fog tested for proven corrosion resistance
Built on decades of experience developing subminiature, high voltage connectors,
the PWR's new robust design also benefits from Teledyne's extensive experience designing
Space-level products. The new Ruggedized PeeWee line is fully compatible and inter-matable
with all push-pull PeeWee assemblies. Download the Ruggedized PeeWee datasheet.
With this new product, Teledyne has surpassed all previous industry standards
for testing and evaluation to offer customers the highest possible assurances for
quality and reliability. The assembly has been tested and validated using multiple
samples in 13 distinct performance categories, and customers may request and review
the full Ruggedized PeeWee test report prior to procurement.
Like its original counterpart, Ruggedized PeeWee offers the standard 12 kVDC
altitude voltage rating, guaranteeing reliable performance in harsh environmental
conditions up to 70,000 ft. However, these PWR assemblies also offer a new
18 kVDC rating for ground-based applications up to 10,000 ft., which is
especially suitable for medical, instrumentation, and semiconductor inspection equipment
"Ruggedized PeeWee is the latest major innovation to our PeeWee family, which
became an industry standard with over half a million shipped to customers over the
past three decades," said Mark Page, Director of Business Development. "This new
PWR delivers unprecedented robust and reliable performance for high altitude applications,
but can also now address new ground-based applications with higher voltage requirements.
We believe Ruggedized PeeWee will soon become the new standard choice for engineers
in our industry."
Ruggedized PeeWee was developed for applications that require the smallest-size
and lightest-weight high voltage connections. By re-engineering the molded strain
relief used on each connector, the new PWR assemblies have an optimized strain relief
to allow for significantly increased durability.
Variants of the PWR assemblies are being offered with four basic push-pull connector
configurations, and four standard wire options to choose from. Customers also have
the option of single- or double-ended assemblies and can specify assembly length
using a length designator in the part number.
