Allectra GmbH was founded in 2002 in Berlin and now manufactures and supplies a full range of HV (high vacuum) and UHV (ultra high vacuum) components including custom products all over the world. Allectra Limited was started in 2003 in Sussex to promote the products on a worldwide basis. The Allectra sales and service network is also supported by offices in France and Italy. Today, global customers include universities, major Synchrotron laboratories and High Technology companies.
Allectra manufacture electrical feedthroughs, cables, mechanical components and other items including quick access doors, load locks, vacuum chambers and optical components including viewports.
The company is actively involved in the development of new products which can yield technical advantage or cost-saving over conventional components. Our new product range includes Pressure Burst Disks - low pressure versions, a new version of our Triaxial Feedthrough with both small dimensions and high quality connectors, radiation resistant Kapton® insulated wires and radiation resistant wire with PEEK insulation.
2014 has been a year of on-going investment for Allectra - the new UK facility has been re-equipped with new machines and we have welcomed some new technical team members.
Allectra has opened a dedicated Allectra Italia office in Rome in response to the growth of our vacuum science solutions market in Italy.
Allectra now offers a UHV M12 Feedthrough including UHV compatible connector. For less demanding applications, HV and standard connectors can be used on both sides
Allectra co-worked with DECTRIS’ engineering partner ADS to develop in-vacuum X-ray detector for Diamond Light Source, UK
Allectra, with its competence in vacuum feedthrough technology, worked with DECTRIS’ engineering partner ADS to realize the operation of the PILATUS 12M in vacuum at Diamond Light Source, the UK’s national synchrotron science facility.
From September 8th until 12th, visit Allectra at the 13th European Vacuum Conference at Aveiro in Portugal. The scientific programme is being carefully prepared to address hot topics in the field of vacuum science and their applications.
