Due to the safety-critical nature of aeronautical applications, on-board electronic components and systems must operate completely reliably for extended periods of time under extremely harsh environmental conditions.
Electromagnetic compatibility must be carefully addressed as part of the design process to avoid any risk of malfunction of individual components or complete modules caused by interference from other sources.
Appropriate thermal management measures help electronic components to be maintained at an optimal operating temperature and thus ensure stable performance.
Aircraft are equipped with electronic navigation, communication and collision avoidance aids. Our range of microwave shielding seals offers a reliable, high-performance and lightweight solution for the design of compact electronic equipment. Typical applications may include display systems, identification systems (IFF), control units or antennas. In addition to our conductive seals, we offer solutions for heat dissipation and technical sealing in harsh environments.
The new generation of in-flight multimedia systems (IFE) used in commercial flights include many services such as touch screens, audio and video services, internet access and even telephone services. However, these systems require special treatment in the management of problems related to electromagnetic interference transmissions/receptions and in the management of heat dissipation.
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) seals on aircraft structures call for strict specifications, where reliability and safety are mandatory, especially when it comes to exposure to very harsh environments. The notion of corrosion resistance is a subject to which GETELEC responds with a range of anti-corrosion bi-material conductive seals.
