Allectra is a manufacturer of electrical and mechanical feedthroughs for UHV and High Vacuum.
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.
What the maximum current rating for in-vacuum cables is, is not an easy question to answer.
The Allectra Group has this year continued to invest in its custom design and manufacturing departments in both the UK and Germany.
Allectra Pressure Burst Disks are designed to rupture and release gas in the event of potentially hazardous pressures greater than atmospheric pressure occurring in the vacuum system.
Mario Peli has been appointed Managing Director of Allectra Limited, with overall responsibility for manufacturing, engineering and technical sales from the UK.
A new pin technology means standard Sub-D feedthroughs can now be used for significantly higher current ratings. The continuous current per pin is 6A (all pins loaded) and for short periods, 10A per pin, by using special crimp pins and a new in-vacuum cable.
