MilesTek has released a new series of RoHS and REACH compliant MIL-STD-1553B bus couplers for aerospace and ground vehicle applications. They are in stock, available for immediate shipment.
Widely known, the RoHS directive restricts the use of six hazardous materials in the manufacture of electronic and electrical equipment. RoHS was initially adopted by the European Union in 2003 and is now a mandatory requirement for many military and civilian electronic systems. Perhaps not as well known, REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) is also a European Union regulation, implemented in 2006, addressing the production and use of chemical substances and their potential impact on human health and the environment.
To address the growing demand for products that are RoHS and REACH compliant, MilesTek stocks a wide range of MIL-STD-1553B box style bus couplers. They are available with one through eight stub options and models with single, double or no bus jacks. These rugged bus couplers have a transformer ratio of 1.41:1 and stub resistor values of 59 Ω, within 1 percent, and with 2 W power handling.
MilesTek offers one of the industry’s widest selections of MIL-STD-1553B box bus couplers, as well as a range of MIL-STD-1553B products, including bus and stub cables, relay devices and terminators.
