Glenair has been a go-to cable house for high-performance interconnect cable assemblies for more than 50 years. We specialise in delivering terminated, tested cable harnesses and assemblies with 100% reliability and quality control. We offer complete, bespoke cable assembly services from design engineering to fabrication and test.
Glenair brings a new perspective to the supply of high-performance Mil-Spec and commercial electrical contacts: High Availability! Whether you need a standard duty socket contact for a MIL-DTL-28840 connector or a short-run of shielded Quadrax, we have you covered with products that are always in stock
Flex Circuit Assemblies are an alternative to standard wire in electrical interconnect systems. Designed to reduce size and weight, flex circuits utilise thin layers of polymer film as a dielectric sandwiched between conductive circuit patterns etched into layers of copper foil cladding.
Cable assemblies, exposed to harsh environmental, mechanical and electromagnetic stress are routinely equipped with heat shrink boots designed to protect critical circuits from environmental and mechanical damage.
High-performance military and commercial interconnect applications employ protective covers to seal unmated receptacles from sand, dust, and fluid ingress, as well as other forms of environmental and mechanical damage.
In the Glenair Pure-Air facility, we manufacture parts for IR Guided Weapons and Weapons Ejection systems which use High Pressure, Pure-Air, Dry Air, Argon or Nitrogen. We can also Pressure Test components to very high pressures, in excess of 16,000 psig, and more importantly, purge and compatibility test products to DEF STAN 58/96, recognised worldwide within the defence industry.
Power distribution cables present a unique challenge to electrical wire interconnect system engineers. Typically fabricated from stiff, non-flexible conductors with extremely large bend radii, such cables are heavy, hard to route, and prone to jacket damage from weathering and abrasion. TurboFlex® power distribution cables are constructed from high strand-count rope lay inner conductors made with tin-, nickel- and silver-plated copper. These highly-flexible conductors, combined with Glenair's high-performance jacketing result in cables ideally suited for applications where flexibility, durability, and weight reduction are required.
Our line of mil-grade and protocol specific wire and cable includes Mil-Spec and commercial variants of commonly specified M22759 type multi-conductor shielded cabling, as well as a full range of fibre optic, and special-purpose power cables. Best of all, Glenair high-performance wire and cable is offered in short runs with no length or value minimums. Fast turnaround — up to and including stock — is our model.
Glenair's history of interconnect innovation for manned space applications began with our design and fabrication role in the realization of the golden umbilical life-support cable used by Commander Ed White in the first American Gemini Program space walk in 1965.
