4 History of Hyperboloid Patented by FRB in 1960’sEarly 70’s: Original US Licensees: IEH, Smiths Interconnect, Curtiss-WrightToday: Only Manufactures of Hyperboloid connectors are IEH and the divisions of Smiths (Hypertac Ltd, Hypertronics)
6 Hyperboloid ConceptThe Hyperboloid-shaped sleeve is formed by straight wires strung at an angle to the longitudinal axis. This geometry provides for a design which has a decreasing circumscribed circle when viewed from the entryWhen the pin is inserted into this sleeve, the wires stretch, well within elastic limits, to accommodate it. In doing so, the wires wrap themselves around the pin, providing a number of continuous line contact paths
7 Hyperboloid Construction Wires strung on an internal wire carrier (inner sleeve), and enclosed by a front outer ring (front sleeve) and the terminal. Joints are calculated interference fits, insuring gas-tight interfaces between all elements of the Hyperboloid constructionThe unique geometry, precision processing, and careful attention to quality result in a highly desirable contact design which provides:
8 Low Insertion/Extraction Forces FeatureWire basket expands to envelop mating pin when inserted.BenefitLess resistance in pin-socket interface, thus less force required to mate and demate, especially in high pin count connectors
9 Contact Life Feature Benefit Unlike the “plow and scrape” action of common designs, Hyperboloid’s wiping action reduces wear on the contacts surfaces.BenefitStandard contacts are rated to last 500 mating cycles.Hyperboloid contacts are rated for 100,000 mating cycles.
10 Higher Current Ratings FeatureHyperboloid wire system envelops mating pin, thus more lines of contact between pin and socketBenefitGreater current-carrying capability, at ambient temperature rise
11 Impervious to Shock & Vibration FeatureThe low mass and resulting low inertia of the wires allows them to follow the most extreme excursions of the pin without loss of contact. Test exceed 300 g’s without discontinuity.BenefitGuaranteed electrical continuity regardless of the directionor intensity of external and internal forces.

23 HUB ZONE CERTIFIEDCompetitorsVery little overlap between IEH and Hypertronics product linesAs an M55302 QPL provider, IEH competes mainly with Airborn, Incon and Continental connector. IEH – Airborn comparison as follows:Airborn W Series = IEH HGM SeriesAirborn RM2 and RM3 Series = IEH HRM SeriesAirborn RM4 Series = IEH HMM Series
