IEH is a leading innovator of low insertion force electronic connection devices. Serving both the military/aerospace and commercial electronic markets, IEH products are used in military systems: terrestrial, airborne, and aerospace communications; avionics and guidance systems; instrumentation; medical and electronic test equipment.
History of Hyperboloid Hyperboloid Technology About IEH IEH Products Competitors Customers Programs
History of Hyperboloid Patented by FRB in 1960’s Early 70’s: Original US Licensees: IEH, Smiths Interconnect, Curtiss-Wright Today: Only Manufactures of Hyperboloid connectors are IEH and the divisions of Smiths (Hypertac Ltd, Hypertronics)
The 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 entry When 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 Hyperboloid Concept
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 construction The unique geometry, precision processing, and careful attention to quality result in a highly desirable contact design which provides: Hyperboloid Construction
Low Insertion/Extraction Forces Feature Wire basket expands to envelop mating pin when inserted. Benefit Less resistance in pin-socket interface, thus less force required to mate and demate, especially in high pin count connectors
Contact Life Feature Unlike the “plow and scrape” action of common designs, Hyperboloid’s wiping action reduces wear on the contacts surfaces. Benefit Standard contacts are rated to last 500 mating cycles. Hyperboloid contacts are rated for 100,000 mating cycles.
Higher Current Ratings Feature Hyperboloid wire system envelops mating pin, thus more lines of contact between pin and socket Benefit Greater current-carrying capability, at ambient temperature rise
Impervious to Shock & Vibration Feature The 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. Benefit Guaranteed electrical continuity regardless of the direction or intensity of external and internal forces.
