Douglas Electrical Components' (DECo) Portplate systems, which combine fully assembled, pre-tested multiple feedthroughs on a single plate are said to minimize the amount of potential downtime due to system leaks, which would usually result in high costs and delays, associated with troubleshooting. These plates can hold multiple sealed feedthroughs, depending on the project needs, and can be replaced as one unit, should leakage occur. Additional features include design, mounting, testing, installation, mating connectors, troubleshooting and full connectorization on the wire harness. The finished, ready-to-pump feedthrough plates are available to accommodate a variety of mixed configurations of feedthroughs including those from the DECo Ductorseal, Studseal, Optiseal and Potcon product families. The plates can house a variety of connector densities and counts, as well as mating connectors, and ready-to-go, fiber optic bulkheads. The assemblies are available in various sizes ranging from 6” through 48” in diameter and offer full strain relief. They can be provided with or without connectors, and are shipped to customer facilities as a complete assembly, ready to install and pump. DECo also offers vacuum outgassing bakeout for components or the entire unit. Common applications for these systems include space simulation, HVAC compressors, magnetic bearing flywheels, semiconductor manufacturing equipment and mass spectrometry.
